Whether it's John McClane in Nakatomi Plaza or Neo in the Matrix, our favorite action heroes are nothing without the punches, gunfire, and explosions that help them save the day. Many of the finer details about these weapon and combat elements are harder to spot than you'd think but thankfully fans online have targeted many of them for us. For example, in John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, the eponymous one-man army swims away from gunfire, knowing that the bullets have a very short range underwater. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America catching Thor's hammer Mjolnir is one of the most iconic moments in the Avengers saga. You may not have noticed, however, that Cap braces the impact with a curled arm, as opposed to his Asgardian counteract, who doesn't even bend his elbow. There are even details that create historical context. In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indy avoids getting cut in half by praying like a Christian. The trap, though, has an extra blade that would kill a person bowing in Muslim prayer.
