Intense Hollywood Movie Lines that are Super Entertaining

Updated: Apr 9

1. You wanna lay the fate of the world on the kid's Camaro? Transformers (2007)

A man at gunpoint says this wholly underestimated punch line in "Transformers" by Michael Bay. John Turturro plays Simmons, a Sector Seven agent who is slammed against a wall by Josh Duhamel who plays Lt. Col. Williams while asking him to release the Autobot BumbleBee.

Duhamel/Williams goes on to prod him with the business end of what looks like a Beretta which makes Simmons say this. 

2. Careful, Chief. You dig up the past, all you get is dirty.  Minority Report (2002)

"Minority Report" has this well placed dialogue that basically sets the tone for the whole movie. The best movie lines don't need any context or back story. It makes an impression instantly. This is one such line that stands on its own.  

When Tom Cruise is going through old memory files of the pre-cogs (clairvoyants), the person handling these files says this dialogue. This line seems innocuous but is the whole movie plot in a single line. 

3. So no matter what I promise you, if you need us, if you need me. I'll be there. Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Being a hard-core Marvel fan I couldn't resist laying this one down. The end of Civil War sees Tony Stark and Steve Rogers butting heads. With Tony reading Steve Rogers' farewell letter to him, and simultaneously showing Steve stepping out of the shadows to the line "I'll be there".

It is indicated that Steve has broken into the high-security prison where the ones who opposed the Sokovia Accords were held captive. But the timing and the tone would give any Marvel fan goosebumps. You get to relive this moment all over again when Steve emerges from the shadows to rescue Vision and Wanda Maximoff. 

4. You almost knocked over your alcohol with your knife! Zombieland (2009)

This one is probably amazingly funny :) . Jesse Eisenberg says this to Woody Harrelson in his Chevy Escalade, in the comedy horror "Zombieland." 

Hitching a ride with the Yosemite Sam-looking Woody Harrelson,  Eisenberg breaks the ice with this funny line

5. There is a god in you. Be sure to BRING IT. Clash of the Titans (2010)

Sam Worthington could have probably done a better job with his acting but nails it in the action sequences.

He plays Perseus in this reboot of a classic. When he is out with a small legion and a general (Draco) played by Mads Mikkelson, he brings in some fish for the hunting party to eat. Draco the general picks this as the best time to give him a lesson in swordplay.

Initially, he starts off with a few helpful pointers to Perseus such as treating the sword like an extension of yourself like the sting on a wasp. In a moment he switches up his teaching technique by pouncing on Perseus with a barrage of sword attacks prompting Perseus to say "DON'T."

Next thing you know Perseus parries Draco's sword with a single blow sending it flying into a tree, and has Draco's throat at the end of his knife.

This is when Draco says this cool line, followed by "End of Lesson."
