Absurdly Cool Movie Weapons | Sick Stick
Sick Stick

First seen in: Minority Report (2002)

Why it’s so ludicrous: The truncheon that makes you lose your luncheon, sick sticks force their victims to empty the contents of their stomach. While this piece of kit would leave your average law enforcer smelling like a bag of dead cats, it’s a neat notion that avoids the typical big-gun-goes-boom approach to sci-fi weaponry (as does the swing-reloading sonic gun elsewhere in the film). One for when you don’t absolutely have to kill every last motherf-cker in the room.

Most useful when: The dog’s swallowed your car keys.

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
