3. Shark Dines on Samuel L. Jackson
Movie: Deep Blue Sea (1999)
Sometimes, bad special effects are wonderful, as in Deep Blue Sea's notoriously shitty send-off for Samuel L. Jackson's character. The scene plays out brilliantly: Giving a defiant, call-to-arms monologue while standing dangerously close to water, Jackson achieves a Janet-Leigh-in-Psycho moment of fatal surprise. After all, he's the biggest name in the film's cast, so he can't die yetâ€¦right? It's not even an hour into the movie.
But, alas, Jackson's overlong speech gets cuts short when a fake-looking shark grabs what looks like a Samuel L. Jackson action figure in its jaws and pulls him into the water.
