Topic: Whips in movies?

Apart from the obvious Indiana Jones - which movies do you know of that have whips in them?
I'm not aware of the specific movies, but Zorro does have a whip in his arsenal.
Any legendary whip movies? Whips in lesser parts - whip cameos?

Re: Whips in movies?

Most movies I have seen with whips in them don't hold an iconic status such as Indiana Jones.  Some of these choices are open to debate but off the top of my head and in more recent times:

Alan Quartermain with Richard Chamberlain (Snakewhip)
Ghostrider uses his chain like a whip
Catwoman from Batman Returns
Whiplash from Iron Man 2

It was the least I could do for him.

One of my all time movies. Love the riding down the mountain while cracking a whip.
And the one he bests the military guy buy doing better and more with a whip instead of a sword.

Re: Whips in movies?

How could anyone forget "Zorro, the Gay Blade"?  There is also Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.  They used Paul Nolan whips with a bit of combined CGI.

Here's wishing you find time for the things you want to do, and for the things you need to do.

Don't think I've heard of that Zorro mate. I didn't even notice one in POP. Mind you I only saw the movie once
Nice shoutouts though Jyri & Jeff smile
Still trying to forget some scenes from Django lol

Re: Whips in movies?

Zorro the Gay Blade - Zorro has broken his foot fighting against the evil Spanish overlords (no offense at Spaniards).  Unable to continue his twin brother "Bunny Wigglesworth", a product of the British Navy (No offense at the British Navy intended) fills in for him.  Not liking the black clothing he makes a few colorful, flamboyant changes to the costume.  Not liking the sword either he uses a bullwhip instead.  Hilarity ensues.

For those who may want to watch it there is a passable copy on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoYvjJMNnc0&t=1333s

Re: Whips in movies?

I remember once seeing a sci-fi film called Expect No Mercy, where one of the baddies (Anthony de Longis) uses a whip. (More fantasy about whips being 'weapons'.) I've just looked on YouTube and found a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66P0iR6SyFI. I have to say I thought it was a pretty bad film!

Re: Whips in movies?

Then there's also Johnny Mnemonic.
Which features a baddy with a laser whip. smile

There's also a scene where he cuts right through a person. Hahaha.

You've chosen wisely...

Re: Whips in movies?

I also forgot about the great special make up effects artist Tom Savani aka Sex Machine in From Dusk Till Dawn.
Always loved this part

Re: Whips in movies?

„Sex Machine“ was a blast!  lol
There is also some whip-wielding in the latest X-men movie, BUT does anyone know „The Shadow Whip“ ? Old Shaw-Brothers Wire-Fu movie or in this case Wire-Whip. Almost the entire movie is filled with endless fight scenes, where the female hero, played by Cheng Pei Pei, takes out hundreds of bad guys with completely unrealistic whip-wielding. Very fun movie (in a weird way).

Wolfgang, I have (astonishingly enough) actually seen this film, but had forgotten all about it. Wholly unrealistic, of course - but great fun!  smile

Re: Whips in movies?

Again, wholly fanciful - but I enjoyed this film! (These are supposedly 6-foot whips, but I think they look longer than that in the clip.)

Matthew, I'm sure you've seen Robby's little film 'The Whip - The Weapon'....  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnwfFVnzCDI
