Hand-to-hand combat. Shoot 'em ups. Explosions. Super powers and bare fists. Whatever the style, the most famous fight scenes in our favorite action movies always have one thing in common: they kick butt. It's not just the heart-pounding excitment that makes these fights memorable, though-- it's the small details, and many of them you may have missed. Luckily for us, fans online have spotted plenty of them. For example, in the night club scene in John Wick, the titular lead actually reloads his gun after every fifteen shots, which is perfectly accurate for the firearm he's using. In Avengers: Endgame, Thor takes advice he received from Thanos in Infinity War and strikes for the head on nearly every attack during their climactic showdown. Some of these details foreshadow things to come. For the unfortunate shopowner in Rumble in the Bronx, the fact that he steps under a ladder might be what causes the bad luck that leads to his market's destruction.
Check out this list of small details fans noticed about famous fight scenes, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
