12 Best Slow Motion Scenes In Movies, Ranked

Slow motion has been a part of cinema since the first days of the medium, and it’s been used in some truly iconic movie scenes. The technique was even used in one of the first known pieces of filmmaking, when Eadweard Muybridge used chronophotography to take a set of sequence images of a horse galloping in 1877, in order to discern whether the animal takes all four hooves off the ground to gallop. The capacity to reframe everyday images through slow motion’s distortion of time is still one of the most powerful weapons in a filmmaker’s arsenal.
