Weapon and Combat Details Fans Noticed In Action-Adventure Movies
Action-adventure movies offer some of the most exciting thrills, set pieces, and storylines of any genre on screen, but those aren't the only things that make us love them. Fans online have pointed out some incredible small details about the weapons and combat in these movies that make them even more spectacular than we already thought. For example, in 2021's Godzilla vs. Kong, the two titans pay homage to 1962's King Kong vs. Godzilla during their epic final battle. In another callback, fans have noticed that in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic taps his foot just like in the video games while facing a rocket attack. Some weapons details really tie a whole franchise together! In Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Will's fateful end by the hands of Davy Jones comes from the very sword he gifted Governor Swann in the first movie.
