In the action-packed world of film, people are always on the move. But how can screenwriters underline the urgency of a situation? The solution is “go, go, go”—a simple three-word phrase that implores people to move forward. Just like “move, move, move” and “c’mon, c’mon, c’mon,” “go, go, go” is ubiquitous in all types of movies. Crossing genres and decades, there are an untold number of films that rely on someone urging another character to move quite rapidly.
Supercut Videos has assembled a sampling of this cliché, er, staple of films. The clips are culled from more than 60 movies that include comedies, action, sci-fi, fantasy, and thrillers, showing the expanse of the phrase’s preponderance in cinema. So sit back and prepare to have your adrenaline spiked with people yelling at others, the best way to communicate the need for speed (Note: Need For Speed is not one of the films).
