Barb Wire (1996) (part 11 of 11)
First up, Pam has a shootout with a thug high up in the air, which naturally sends him falling to his death. But at least we can tell it’s an actual stuntman, and not a cheap dummy like in Never Too Young to Die.
At the same time, Axel is chased by Congressionals who fire about 15,000 times and don’t hit him once. Axel climbs up some steps and shoots back at them once, causing a fuel tank to explode [!] into a huge ball of flame. And here, there’s actually a shot of Temuera Morrison looking at his gun like he’s thinking, “How the heck did I do that?” Which is yet another moment that would’ve almost been amusing had it been in a better movie.
