Movie cliches

If somebody cool sets up an explosion, they will walk away calmly (and in slow motion) while it goes off behind them. (Thanks, Alan)

If someone is thrust into a situation where they end up becoming an unlikely hero and during the course of the action discovers a bomb about to explode, they will be thrown into the air when it explodes as they run away.

If a bomb is disabled by clipping a wire, it will always happen at the last possible second, usually following an argument about which color wire should be cut.
