Stunning supercut of Explosions In Arnold Schwarzenegger films

1.jpg

Fictional insurance companies must hate Arnold Schwarzenegger.

When he’s not blowing buildings (and people) to smithereens himself, he’s inadvertently causing someone else to turn standing structures into fiery pools of ash, rubble and bad guy corpses. Where there’s a loud bang, you can bet the Austrian bodybuilder-turned-cyborg-turned-pregnant man isn’t too far away.

Should you want to tally up the total damage he's caused, here’s an excellent Arnie explosion supercut.

Listing most Arnie films in order, along with the minutes until the first explosion in said feature, we start with those early, awkward acting roles (Arnie’s delivery of lines as ‘handsome' stranger in cowboy film The Villain makes even the Royal Mail look good) before moving onto his golden period in the late eighties/early nineties.

All in all, it works out to a ridiculous 32 minutes - there are 16 of them before we even get to James Cameron’s missile-strewn action romp True Lies - and finishes with his recent, not entirely great output which we'll forgive - you've got to respect him for putting his brittle body through explosive scenes at his ripe old age.

Oh and there is one glaring omission. But then of course Pumping Iron was explosive in its own right.
