“Only in the movies” is a phrase you often see bandied about when it comes to crazy and outlandish scenes in film. Indeed, if life were a Hollywood film, every car would be able to defy the laws of physics and the only vehicles on the road would be petrol tankers with a penuche to spontaneously explode when touched by another vehicle.

Luckily, we don’t live in the movies or else we would be looking to buy a new car every week. That said, the over-the-top stuff is partly why we love going to the cinema and when it comes to car explosions, there’s nothing we love more than the cars packed with enough explosives to level a small building.

Here is our top 5 picks for the most out of this world movie car explosions of all time:

5. The Rock – Electric Tram Explosion

In this scene, a San Francisco tram is shunted off its rails and then blown three storeys high in an epic fireball. Obviously somebody failed to tell Michael Bay that electric trams contain no significant flammable material. Even if the explosion is over-the-top, at least we can see what’s going on, which is more than can be said for Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise.

4. Invasion USA – Chuck Norris being a bad-ass

It’s a well-known fact that every explosion you see in a movie is just Chuck Norris doing a random roundhouse kick. Yet, in this scene, Chuck decides to change it up a bit with a casual stick of dynamite.

3. Solicitor Commercial – Explosions a-kimbo

Ok, so this one is technically not a movie. It’s a television commercial for Berger & Green Injury Lawyers but it has more car explosions than any Michael Bay film. Indeed, if you ever find yourself in a burning car after doing a sweet-ass jump, then call this guy, or better yet, speak to Platinum Direct Finance about buying a new car!

2. Naked Gun – Tankers and Missiles and Fireworks, oh my!

The Naked Gun movies are well known for taking the mickey out of Hollywood film and and in this scene, comedian Leslie Neilsen chases a bad guy in a car with a driving instructor. The bad guy, as expected, crashes his vehicle into a petrol tanker resulting in an epic fireball of flames. However, that’s not the end of it. He then careens into a missile transporter for a second explosion, before finally ploughing into a fireworks factory – triggering explosion number three. It doesn’t get more over the top than that.

1. Horse Bane – Bollywood action at it’s finest

If you thought that Hollywood owned the action film genre then you’ve never seen action done Bollywood-style. Forget Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Chuck Norris, once you see this scene, your new favourite action film star is Chiranjeevi.

In this scene, Chiranjeevi breaks free from his captures and attempts to flee. With over-the-top stunts including an epic pole split, a horse sliding under a truck and more unexplained exploding cars than in any movie ever made, it is the clear winner of our out of this world movie car explosions list.
