Weapon And Combat Details Fans Noticed In High Seas Movies

List Rules
Vote up the details that hit the mark.

Whether they're swashbuckling across the high seas with Captain Jack Sparrow or fighting for their lives against a great white shark, movies set on the high seas always entertain. With as much action and adventure as these saltwater flicks tend to have, it's no surprise that fans online have spotted a veritable ocean of details related to their weapons and combat. For example, in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Johnny Depp actually carried a set of authentic 18th-century pistols while filming. If you've ever wondered where the demigod Maui's magical hook goes when he transforms into an animal in the animated hit Moana, look a little closer-- it's always "tattooed" onto his skin or fur or feathers. Some of these details showcase great continuity. In Jaws, you can see Quint load the life-saving harpoon gun onto the boat before they set out to hunt the shark.

Check out this list of small details fans spotted about the weapons and combat in movies set on the high seas, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

    Oceanmaster Wears A Single Arm Guard In 'Aquaman'

    From Redditor u/icetoagun:

    In Aquaman, during his 1st battle with Aquaman, Orm (Oceanmaster) is shown wearing armor with a single full arm guard. This is likely a reference to Retiarius gladiators who fought with a trident and net and were lightly armored other than a manica (arm guard).
