Some time ago I watched a movie, of which one scene never left my mind.
In that scene there was a room full of shelves and tubes and jars (some kind of laboratorium), with a man in it.

Someone else enters the room and forces him to lie down. Then he (the person who just entered) puts a mask on the first man's face with a lot of tubes attached to it.
All kinds of fluids then enter the man's body and he starts twitching uncontrollably.
However, he isn't killed by it (which also wasn't the purpose), but he turns into a monster, ripping everything off him and smashing everything in the room to smithereens.

I think the movie was released in the late 20th or early 21th century.

Does anyone know which movie this could be?

    If it really is Batman & Robin, for your safety and for the safety of those around you, abandon your goal of rewatching the movie. Nothing good will come of it. – phantom42 May 31 '14 at 12:48
  • Good actors, bad movie. – nidunc May 31 '14 at 12:52

Was it Bane's transformation in Batman & Robin (1997)?

Bane was strapped down, is injected with "super soldier serum", twitches, and breaks free, destroying things.


Could it have been Batman and Robin? I'd consider it unlikely, simply due to them being so popular and their presence in the movie unlikely to be forgotten, but the scene you described sounds really reminiscent to Bane's transformation in that movie:


It's a steampunky piece called Riese, is it not? from SyFy

    Does the scene I described occur in the series? (and if yes, in which episode?) – nidunc May 31 '14 at 6:57
  • nevermind, I watched half of the episodes, and I don't think this is it. The movie I saw was definitely released before 2009. – nidunc May 31 '14 at 7:31

    There's a cliffhanger where he's first modified, wrecks the lab and kills the doctor(s), but I think the Bane answer is much closer to what you're looking for! – Patrick Hughes May 31 '14 at 8:22
