The suspension of disbelief is everything in movies. Filmmakers ask a lot of the audience. “Please watch our story and accept that most of what takes place can never actually happen in real life.” In return for the audience’s good faith, they get to be entertained. But sometimes, it’s all just too unbelievable, even for the most willing audience participant. Here are the most ludicrous action scenes in movies.

Of course, some of these weird and silly action sequences are totally entertaining. The idea that a single person (The Bride in Kill Bill) can defeat an army of 88(ish) trained fighters is totally, ridiculously insane. But that doesn’t mean the epic battle scene isn't a joy to behold. It's filmed with master precision by cinematic auteur Quentin Tarantino. In fact, Tarantino wants the scene to be absurd, in the most entertaining way possible.  

On the other hand, some of these worst action movie sequences are just roll-your-eyes-way- to-the-back-of-your-head bad. Sharknado anyone? James Bond’s disappearing car? Could a helicopter really pick up a city bus?
