Absurdly Cool Movie Weapons | The AV Arc
The AV Arc

First seen in: Blade Trinity (2004)

Why it’s so ludicrous: A large metal bow with a neon blue laser where the string should be, it’s a vampire-dicing cheese slicer that cuts through the undead like nobody’s business. Sure, Wes might have his blades, but Jessica Biel has this shiny UV cheesewire and it always makes an impression. How it works on vampires is such gibberish the highest order – we’ll spare you the details – but rest assured that it’s nonsense, but very, very cool nonsense.

Most useful when: There’s a horde of vampires in skintight vests running at you or you just want to make a quick ploughman’s.

1 RE: Absurdly Cool Movie Weapons
I thought the Flaming Sword was a bit unnecessary. In a year if the list was compiled again I doubt it would even be considered. But I thought the Noisy Cricket was genius. More

Ummmm Light Sabers aside (Shame on you Empire) where is Rose McGowan's modified M4 Carbine with M203 grenade launcher attachment from Planet Torror Ok i know this is a real weapon BUT IT IS ATTACHED TO HER FUCKIN LEG how cool is that, i mean she could go to scratch her calf and level a school by mistake   Or the Proton Pack from Ghostbusters   Surely the the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch was onE of the first truely absurd weapons in film and deserves a place rather than a mention alongside The Holy Shotgun   More
