10 Awesome Electricity Scenes in Movies


Of all the special effects and enhancements one can make to a movie, I think that electricity is definitely up there.  There’s just something very cool about electricity.  I mean how many times have you seen lightning and thought how cool it was (assuming no one got hurt)?

How awesome is it to watch a taser in action?  Hell even seeing a person get electrocuted is kind of entertaining.  No, I’m not saying I like it I’m simply pointing out that we don’t often get to see cool electrical phenomenon in our lives and it’s always a treat when movies share them with us.

Here are 10 awesome electricity scenes in movies…

Christmas Vacation – Fried Cat Scene


Anytime you see an old man (or even his stunt double) tackled it’s very funny.  Plus it’s Clark Griswald. Come on.

Rambo – “I’m Coming to Get You”


OK maybe I just love the “I’m coming to get you” line but still, he does electrocute the guy and it’s pretty damned sweet.

The Hangover – Tasing Scene


The little fat kid.  I have no words to describe how awesome he is.

Anything from Shocker


But this will do.

Linus Bragg on the Electric Chair


One of the toughest movie scenes to watch, ever.

Botched Execution in the Green Mile


This was seriously messed up

The Real Origin of Raiden


A.  Great Movie.  B.  This guy is a total badass.

Beginning of Terminator


Go to Minute 4.  Oh yeah.  What a classic.

The Last Dragon – Final Scene


One of the most classic movies of all time.  I can’t believe they’re remaking this movie.

The Prestige – Tesla


The powers of cloning.  Totally badass.
