Luke Skywalker in Star WarsOkay, picture the scene: You're the star of an action movie... you find yourself in a large dimly lit house... in a nearby room, a villain waits to attack... you search around for any sort of weapon and then, inside an old cupboard, you discover a) a gun b) a knife c) a double-barrelled laser sword which fires miniature hydrogen bombs. Which weapon do you confront your foe with?

If you answered 'c', you're in the right place (if you went for 'a' or 'b' - go home to mummy). Basically, your bona fide action movie star would not be who he (or she) is without a deadly and ultra-cool weapon by their side.

So with that in mind, we give to you now our ten favourite movie weapons of all time. Some are cool, some are silly, but they all have one thing in common - in the hands of a beginner they'll have your eye out. Take the jump and get tooled up...
