Hulk (2003) (part 13 of 13)
David Zzzzzzzzzax starts sucking all the power out of San Francisco, leading to the expected shot of the city skyline as all the lights go out. Bruce Hulks out, and David Zzzzzzzzzzax turns into a lightning bolt and pulls Hulk up into the clouds, where they have an epic fight brought to us as, no exaggeration, a series of still images. The camera pans across clouds, and every time lightning flashes, we see a still image, projected on a cloud [!], of the Hulk fighting Zzzzzzzzzzzax. If I had to make a list of the most exciting ways to film an action sequence, “as a series of still life paintings” would probably not rank very high.
