Having just watched “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” (and boy, oh boy, I’m glad I waited to see it in the cheap theater), it occurs to me that an awful lot of “action” movies have mine-cart scenes. In addition to Smaug, I can remember “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” as well as “The Rock” (Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage have adventures in the mines under Alcatraz).
I’m sure there are more. Speak up! Enlighten us!
