Movies' Most Dangerous Buildings | Downfall (2004)
Downfall (2004)

Address: Near the Reich Chancellery, Berlin

The Upside In the chaos of wartime and under heavy shelling from your enemies, it’s hard to beat a good bunker! Securely constructed out of thick concrete, this is guaranteed to withstand everything up to the complete collapse of the Third Reich and the fall of its capital – and really, how likely is that? With space for all your favourite fellow war criminals functionaries, generals, ministers and their families, here’s a spot where you can ride out World War II in peace!

The Downside
You’re going to be stuck in there with a bunch of Nazis. Also, if your army collapses because you started a land war in Asia (one of the classic blunders) and the Allies overrun the place, you’re done for.

Survival techniques Don’t be a Nazi. Don’t marry a Nazi whose idea of a good time is swallowing suicide pills together. Don’t hang with Hitler, period.

Chances of survival?
Low. Those who don’t commit suicide will be killed by their parents, killed trying to escape or hung by the Allies for war crimes, for the most part.

How about that place from Resident Evil, what's it called, The Hive? There's zombies (naturally) and there's that room with the lasers that slice you up. Might count as dangerous, no? More
