Filmmaking is a complicated process and it is not easy to keep a film going by the sweat of one’s brow. As far as action scenes are concerned, accidents are evident, maybe due to negligence and luck. In real life, things actually go over the top, especially when you are an actor. Here we are counting on four movie scenes that actually went horribly wrong in real life.
1) Viggo Mortensen’s toe injury in Lord of the Rings
Viggo Mortensen is popularly known for his role of Aragorn who is one of the main protagonists in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. In one of the scenes when he looks around and carnage and kicks one helmet, Mortensen actually broke his toe. The helped he kicked was heavier than expected. He screamed out in pain. But the camera kept rolling and he maintained his character in the nasty predicament. He is pretty badass.
2) Christian Bale and Heath Ledger fight
Heath Ledger’s perfection as Joker is simply unbeatable. Several actors played the iconic role, but nobody did the character well like Ledger. In The Dark Knight, during the famous interrogation scene, he actually orders Christian Bale to hit him in real. So the shots you see during the scene were actually real. Despite being in the real pain, Ledger maintained the role perfectly. And that’s another paragon why he was the best Joker.
3) Isla Fisher almost drowned in Now You See Me
Isla Fisher’s appearance in the opening scene was one of the scariest moments of her life. In the scene, where she was entangled in chains in a water tank, Fisher could experience a near-death experience. Well, she was finally able to release herself from the chains.
4) Rocky IV
Rocky IV is one of the over-the-top installments in Rocky franchise. In a fighting scene, Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky faces off Dolph Lundgren’s character Captain Ivan Drago. During the scene, Lundgren, who is a trained martial art champion knocked Stallone seriously, which landed him Rocky in the hospital for ten days.
