Just a Bunch of Cool-Ass Slow Motion Shots from Movies

Sure, maybe slow motion doesn’t suit every movie, but if you want to be a fun movie, you better throw a couple slow motion shots in. They’re just cool as hell to watch (and make you wish that you could slow motion real life). So here are a few of the best ones, from movies like The Matrix, 300, Spider-Man, Inception, The Lord of the Rings, and more.


My favorite slow motion shot is probably when a group walks down a hallway toward the camera. I can’t help it, I know it’s not a creative use of slow motion but I’m a total sucker for that.

Counterpoint: All slow motion in movies is bad unless it is being used to convey the shock of a situation see: Storming the Beach scene in Saving Private Ryan. Only then in similar situations is its use acceptable.
