Within the movie’s climax, Tugg Speedman (who has been captured through the participants of Flaming Dragon and compelled to reenact his position from the fictitious comedy “Easy Jack”) is rescued through the opposite actors, who infiltrate the Flaming Dragon camp in conceal. The actors all flee the camp in a hail of gunfire and spoil a bridge the use of the movie’s over the top pyrotechnics, reducing off the pursuit of the Flaming Dragon gang participants.
The actors all organize to board a helicopter and are at the verge of escaping when Flaming Dragon’s 12-year-old gang chief Tran (Brandon Soo Hoo) fires an RPG on the automobile. In most likely one of the crucial funniest examples of “deus ex machina” in movie historical past, Tugg’s agent Rick Peck (Matthew McConaughey) all at once emerges from the woodland protecting a TiVo DVR. Previous within the movie, we discovered that Tugg’s contract for “Tropic Thunder” entitled him to a TiVo, which manufacturer Les Grossman (Tom Cruise) by no means equipped. The implication this is that Peck flew all of the manner into the Golden Triangle and braved a whole war-torn jungle simply to supply his shopper with stated TiVo. Because the RPG is set to collide with the helicopter, Peck throws the TiVo field into the air, the place it blocks the oncoming RPG and explodes.
Thus, the TiVo finally ends up saving the day, and the actors fly off to protection as Peck cheers from under. This ultimate break out scene manages to seize the whole thing that makes “Tropic Thunder” so nice: pulling off an exhilarating motion climax in an absurd, completely hilarious manner.
