One of the coolest things about sci-fi movies has always been the weapons featured in them. Sure, spaceships and innovations (like the transporter in Star Trek) are great. But it’s usually the weapons that we tend to remember most fondly. And there have been some really cool and imaginative weapons featured in sci-fi cinema over the years. In fact, the “wow” factor has only increased as special effects have improved and budgets for sci-fi movies have ballooned over the years. Here then are the 10 coolest weapons featured in sci-fi movies to date.
10. Sonic Shotgun – Minority Report (2002)
There were lots of cool innovations featured in director Steven Spielberg’s 2002 sci-fi masterpiece Minority Report, including the “sick sticks” that the police used to make the people they were pursuing throw-up on the spot. But for our money, the coolest weapon shown in Minority Report is the sonic shotgun that blasts a sonic wave at its target and sends them flying through the air. This weapon gets extra points for having cool sound effects and for the way the weapon is reloaded – by being spun around at the hilt. The special effects simulating the sonic blast are also really cool. You can almost see this as being a plausible weapon of the future designed to render people harmless without killing them.http://screenrant.com/best-movie-tv-weapons/ Via ScreenRant.com
