Most Iconic Weapons in Film and TV

Postby bankska22 » Apr Sat 13, 2019 12:52 pm (195.7 KiB) Viewed 338 times

I’ve got a fun new episode of Expert Witness here for you to watch from Vulture in which combat expert and fight coordinator Jared Kirby takes a look at and discusses some of the most iconic weapons used in TV and film.

   From Thor’s mighty hammer Mjölnir, to Bruce Lee’s trademark nunchucks, to the curved blades of the Klingon bat’leth, pop culture has a wide range of weapons in its armory. In this episode of Expert Witness, we sit down with fight coordinator and historical fencing master Jared Kirby (again) to go over the pros and cons of some iconic Hollywood weaponry.

Some of the other weapons that Kirby looks at includes Thor’s mighty hammer Mjolnir and the vinyl records in Shaun of the Dead.

Kirby offers some cool insight on these weapons and how they are used. Check out the video below and let us know what your weapon of choice is.
