Every Single Explosion in Every Single Arnold Schwarzenegger Movie

It’s the supercut to end all supercuts! Arnold Schwarzenegger himself assembled this collection of the explosions features in all his movies—okay, he probably hired a team to do it, but I love the idea of Arnold hunched over a MacBook fiddling with Final Cut Pro—and the result is the best 30 minutes you’ll spend all day.

I also love how much thought Arnold put into this:

To show you what I mean when I say blow sh*t up, here is a Supercut with EVERY explosion from EVERY film I have starred in that had an explosion to count, up through Sabotage. In order to do this, my team had to come up with some rules.

Explosions were counted frame by frame based on every instance of an actual explosion.

This includes repeated explosions, as well as explosions within explosions. Explosions that continued through an edit were only counted once.

An honest attempt was made to count every explosion based on these rules.

In some cases an educated guess was made.

The video was made to promote a contest where you can win a chance to blow shit up with Schwarzenegger himself, which in turn was made to promote Arnold’s After-School All-Stars charity. Donating here gets you a chance to win.
