Sometimes a climax can be so complex and exciting that a clever solution is just way to far out of reach for the writers. When that happens a story often relies on a device called "deus ex machina" or "god from the machine" and a previously unseen or obscure force comes in out of nowhere and saves the day. More than just getting the characters out of danger deus ex machina can also serve to tie up loose plot threads and resolve a conflict in as little time as possible.

  • Tyler Durden

    You got the Matrix one wrong Why is it making a deal with the machines a Deus Ex Machina moment The REAL Deus Ex Machina moment in that movie is when Neo stops machines in the real world with a natural power never shown before not the ending

  • Jaiden

    anyone else alway think of cinemasins when hearing deus ex machina

  • good cheer and blitheringness

    quotLocal aliensquot is surely an oxymoron

  • João Rita

    Your War of the Worlds choice makes no sense Did you even read the book Any audience that quotfelt cheatedquot were complete idiots that didn39t read itAnd the Matrix How is that suh a moment Neo made an allornothing deal and e really had no choice

  • emeraldmanifoy

    I love Deus Ex Machina though I still see good in it

  • rob140892

    Yousei Teikoku EGOIST Theme song of Deus Ex Machina

  • I. Th.

    The War of the Worlds ending wasn39t a deus ex machina It was a plot twist that didn39t need foreshadowing

  • Connor Brennan

    506509 Get him Megatron Ohso satisfying518528Ah damn it

  • Etterra

    If you complain about the end of War of the Worlds because you didn39t know it was that stupid simple then it39s your own damn fault for never reading the book or anything about it

  • Rikard Nilsson

    1040 Yeahbut I39ve actually seen the original war of the worldsI39ve also seen quotit came from outer spacequot quotAttack of the 50 foot womanquot quotthe blobquot and a bunch of other scifi movies from the 5039s erathe questionable priviledge of growing up with only a handful of tvchannels where everything is geared towards the nostalgia of people in their 50s or somethingBut to be fair quotthe blobquot scared the shit out of me as a kidAlso biological weapons would be the most likely way we could ever hope to defeat a species that39s capable of interstellar flight That or massive amounts of suicide attacks trying to find an if any eventual weakness

  • Sean Joseph

    The War of the Worlds ending is how HG Wells wrote it

  • ditto1958

    In June of 1944 those P5139s in quotPrivate Ryanquot should really have been P47 Thunderbolts

  • frank ponds

    Take off War of the Worlds That39s just disrespectful lol If anything you should have given it to Signs

  • Chesterette

    Donnie Darko made the subtext text

  • Nikki M. Solis

    quotAvatarquot shouldn39t be on this list Jake prayed for help from the planet and it answered him It39s right in the movie

  • xvzvzvzcvzvvz

    Deus ex machina in my opinion is good with enough suspense

  • Anthony Pirtle

    Most of these don39t remotely qualify

  • Roderick Barringer

    Why are you saying it like quotmackquotina It39s like quotmockquotina Ya39ll are lazy af you don39t even bother pronunciating shit right

  • TinyT224

    I thought they would add the scene from Pulp Fiction

  • Benjamin Leyva

    If zombies came the army would pwn itU just got owned FTW


    Aliens water allergy in Signs meh

  • Jeff Spencer

    Stephen King39s quotThe Standquot comes to mind Literally God39s hand saves them all

  • Suzanne Menuet

    Did anybody else catch the oxymoron in 10

  • MishuTaste

    It39s funny how those War of the Worlds aliens had the intelligence for superior technology but couldn39t invent a vaccine or even a Hazmat suit for Earth39s deadly microbes The thought never crossed their minds

  • David Majors

    Was there ever a movie that sucked more than this pathetic remake of War Of The Wars

  • liftlash98

    1002A star wars sound effect in star trek

  • eyextraction

    stupid video couldn39t finish

  • Charles Lathrop

    He doesn39t reverse the rotation of the planet He is going back in time and the planet looks like it39s spinning the other direction because time is already being reversed Why does everyone think he39s turning the planet He39s not even touching it

  • LordHollow

    I don39t think it counts if it is foreshadowed Avatar39s was heavily shadowed and implied constantly The Navi were praying for the planet39s help The armored animal was shown to be impervious to their firepower beforehand Hulk changing was an integral part of the plot from the start

  • Aaron Brockington

    I think the Eagles saving Frodo in the end of LoTR saga is the most annoying Deus Ex momentafter the eagle saved Gandalf from Sarumans39 tower there is not explanation at all as to why Gandalf and i assume Radegast did not ask them or that same Eagle in particular to go find and aid Frodo and Sam

  • Da Vin Kim

    I thought the ending of quotthe arrivalquot was deux ex machina

  • Thomas Ivan Gallito

    Deus Ex Machina is simply The power of directors

  • xvzvzvzcvzvvz

    Are drama teacher told us it meant hand of god

  • Shion Kreth

    Most of these weren39t the cheapest or most implausible deus ex machina moments really some I don39t even think qualify Scenes like in transformers 2 there superman or pacific rim definitely embody deus ex machina but the ending for war of the worlds seemed much more like a meaningful and planned twist and avatar had all that foreshadowing about how everything on that planet was essentially connected no one should39ve felt that was out of nowhere

  • Jakub Franěk

    Not sure you completely understand what quoteiwaquot is in Avatar if you calling it a quotgodquot

  • Trent Knight

    You totally didn39t quotgetquot Adaptation

  • apc55 English French

    what about the ending of monty python39s the holy grail

  • Connor Brennan

    Guys ENOUGH about the turning back time Yes Superman doesn39t face any consequences Yes it39s surprising that he is able to do this But this is SCIENCEFICTION and a power he39s never used before it39s something he39s discovering The turning back of time was originally going to happen in Superman II so we were ALWAYS going to get that regardless of what movie it39s in so why keep complaining about it

  • Luciano Angelotti

    Oh man If you think that the spanish explorers SAVED the guys from Apocalypto then you really missed some of your history classes

  • Ajay Fleig

    The wachowskis aren39t brothers Lana was out as trans at the time the video was published

  • Oscar Hjelmgren

    I was really expecting Jurassic Park as number one

  • Gabriel Horn

    i hate when people say that supes changes the rotation of the rotation of the planet thus rewinding time thats not what he39s doing he39s going faster than the speed of light according to the theory of relaticity by einstein if you go as fast as the speed of light time basically stops around you so if you went faster thechincally time would reverse that39s what is happening it just shows the world going backwards because from superman39s point of view that39s what39s happening

  • Mitch Johnson

    This is a terrible list Most of these don39t even count If the thing that saves the day is set up earlier in the film it39s not a deus ex machina The Sword isn39t something that resolves the plot just helps to resolve on battle I can39t remember your whole list but the only ones that really struck me as true DEMs were Oz and War of the WorldsAlso when it39s done for comedic effect I don39t think that counts either

  • Whovian #1


  • Paul Seaman

    Ironclad and The Mummy Returns have good Deus Ex Machinas Machinae

  • marcelo lopez

    Chuck Norris moment in the expendables

  • theArtofQueer

    Lord of the Flies right But it was sure as shit lucky

  • Adam XYZ

    How do you pick out just one instance of bad acting andor storytelling in any of the Transformer movies The whole franchise was written by a threeyearold child

  • MC Donald

    Where39s Das Boot the reverse Deus Ex Machine

  • Toby Thurlow White

    Wow didn39t realise Star Trek took sounds from Star Wars

  • Emma Jenkins

    Yes this an be a really lazy device but it can also be used creatively and to great effect For example Avatar the Navi are a spiritual group the film is constantly showing how important their god and nature is to them so of course it would make sense for nature to get involved during the battle Also and this is just my interpretation I thought it was supposed to highlight the struggle between man and nature suggesting that ultimately life will overcome machines and mans interference And Wizard of Oz the witch was always supposed to die but its a children39s film for one thing and Dorothy is the archetypal girl next door she is supposed to be innocent and good she could never have intentionally killed the witch it just would not have fit the character or the tone of the film And I have to agree with all the other comments War of the Worlds Come on haha

  • taxidriver7878

    Marissa Tomei Ex Machina in My Cousin Vinny

  • NinjaDav3

    your argument that war of the worlds used a deus ex machina just shows that you don39t really know what that is putting aside the fact that your narration seems to indicate that you think the tom cruise version is the only iteration of this tale you don39t seem to understand the more important point that the entire story of war of the worlds was intentionally leading up to the bioincompatibility ending this wasn39t a case of a writer painting himself into a corner and having to write his way out with a 39saved by supernatural forces39 ending the ending WAS THE ENTIRE POINT though mankind had beaten after a fashion the pathogens of the earth and though the aliens clearly had the technology to destroy mankind it was the pathogens that beat the aliens the POINT was that central irony that39s not deus ex machina that39s the theme of the entire story

  • Foxfire Inferno

    Deus Ex Machina takes on a whole new meaning when you39re talking Transformers

  • Melissa Saar

    I39ve said it once I39ll say it again There is a difference between Deus Ex Machina and fortunate timing

  • Carla Charrier

    jurassic world needs to be in here

  • Denkar11

    In the book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz it is stated several times in advance that the Wicked Witch of the West is afraid of water and avoids it at all times Apparently it39s her kryptonite

  • Hoyt Jolly

    Contact Oh we just happen to have a second huge secret portal machine We built it just in case something happened to the first one

  • trinidaddio gonzo

    the mist the ending was very deus ex machina

  • Christopher Fry

    Why would the Wicked Witch have a bucket of water in her castle if its the only way to kill her

  • 00daveyr

    erm 200km isn39t that far when you have space ships just go mien the rest of the planet Seems like it would be allot easier

  • Alex Bisel

    Does Jurassic Park count The TRex magically enters the Welcome Center without breaking any doors down to save the humans who were otherwise trapped by the Raptors It39s a lazy plot contrivance to save our heroes when they39d been painted into a corner

  • Dana Veitinger

    Are we not going to mention the Deus ex Machina moment in Mirai NikkiFuture Diaries where Deus ex Machina quite literally intervenes out of nowhere to give Minene some of his powers so she can execute her own Deus ex Machina moment later on

  • Jason Wigand

    The Eagles in Return of the King

  • Ray D

    I don39t agree with the Wizard of Oz It was all a dream and in a dream one can make anything happen

  • malkooth

    Where is Match Point The ring bouncing the river meant that the Woody stand in got free from fucking children

  • Sagenumwobener Tobi

    Gandalf being sent back because his task was not fulfilled yet That should be on this list IMO
