    Most memorable part of the movie for me. That whole sequence, with the SFX, the slow motion and the cinematography really worked.

    Sounded like the M.U.T.O from Godzilla, AFAIR

    This. That scene, ending with Lockdown slowly driving past the dead Lucas in Lambo mode, looking absolutely DEVILISH, was my favorite visual moment of the film.

    Along with the scene near the end where Lockdown jumps to the ground in slo-mo at the end through flames. That. Was. Freaking. Awesome.

    Have they ever said what that weapon was called?

    I've just been calling it a 'Flash-Metal Grenade.'

    That was one of the best scenes of the movie. the cinematography of the Lambo driving past the smokey ashes with the shallow depth of field was gorgeous. see the bitchers on the intenet ignore cinematic beauty like that. just the comp of the shot was a beauty
