X-Men: First Class — Sebastian Shaw is surrounded by armed G-Men on a balcony who shoot round after round into his body on the floor below.
But because his power allows him to absorb and control limitless energy, he easily shoots their firepower back at them.
Time Bandits: Evil is surrounded by the time cavalry: cowboys, hoplites, the odd space cannon. They give him everything they’ve got…
…and back it comes.
I think it’s a deliberate quote.
