When Wallace [[spoiler:under the control of Feathers Mcgrew attempting to steal a diamond]] trips a laser beam, the chamber's vertically-dropping entrance door starts to close slowly (about 10 seconds after the alarms first go off), but instead of attempting an IndyHatRoll, he instead immediately turns around and heads for the window - granted, he was walking on the ceiling!

* The door to ENCOM in ''Film/{{Tron}}''. LampshadeHanging with an AdLib from the actor playing Flynn: "Now THAT is a big door!"
** [[RealityIsUnrealistic Ironically]], that's a real door at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory outside Oakland, where some other live-action scenes (including the laser lab) were also filmed.
** ''Film/TronLegacy'' [[ContinuityNod also uses the line.]] Though the door is significantly faster.
* Some security doors in the ''StarWars'' films act this way, while others close almost instantly. Generally, whatever is required by the plot. One door on the Death Star in ''A New Hope'' was closing from all directions at once, so Han Solo had to jump through the hole in the middle.
** This is in fact {{Lampshaded}}. One stormtrooper orders the blast doors closed, then after Han and Chewie escape, another says "Open the blast doors! Open the blast doors!"
** The first arc of the animated series ''WesternAnimation/{{Droids}}'' featured a landspeeder chase scene that used this trope, plus several others (like the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy) repeatedly and in quick succession. R2-D2 suggests it's a trap, and it turns out it is: Behind the last set of slow doors is a dead end and a bunch of guys with blasters.

However once the captain comes in behind them and asks them to turn around it is revealed [[spoiler:it was the stunt doubles that were caught]]
** The doors also close very slowly until the heroes/stunt doubles jump through, at which point they snap shut.
* ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'', allowing Ahnold to jump under the door and hold it long enough for John and Katherine to crawl under it.
* In ''Film/WarGames'', we see NORAD personnel walking in and out while a ridiculously thick metal door is closing. This is TruthInTelevision: The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:NORADBlast-Doors.jpg blast doors]] of the Cheyenne Mountain Complex are 25-ton monsters of concrete and steel, and take about 15 seconds to close. They're on record as the world's largest hinged doors.
* Played straight and averted in ''Film/TheOne'', as Gabriel escapes the Police Compound, he ducks under one of these. However, his Police Pursuers also make it through (though one of the trucks wangs its lightbar on it).

** In "Pressure Point", [[spoiler:Gan has a HeroicSacrifice]] holding up a [[OurDoorsAreDifferent descending door]] long enough for the others to pass under.
** "Space Fall" has a variation; Blake tries to shut the hatch to an airlock transfer tunnel but it won't budge, and he gets shot and wounded by his pursuer. Then the ''Liberator'' blasts off and the hatch shuts automatically leaving his pursuer to be ThrownOutTheAirlock.



* ''Series/DoctorWho'': [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek "Dalek"]] has the door to the lower levels of Henry van Statten's bunker, which closes slowly as Rose and Adam run for it. Adam makes it, but Rose isn't ''quite'' fast enough, leaving her trapped with the Dalek.
* Subverted for a bit of EnforcedMethodActing in the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' pilot; Creator/NathanFillion and Creator/AdamBaldwin were ''expecting'' the doors to Serenity to close more slowly than they did, resulting in minor panic as Mal and Jayne jumped through the gap.
* In the end credits sequence of ''Series/GetSmart'', Max leaves CONTROL headquarters and all the doors that opened in the TitleSequence slam shut behind him, except the last one. When Max goes to close them manually, they shut on his nose.

''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia1'' does have one door in Level 8 that closes just too late for the player (and then is reopened by [[NiceMice mus ex machina]]). The ''Sands of Time'' series somewhat subverts this - some of the doors close quite quickly, but can be passed using the dagger's time slowing ability.



* In the game ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Dark Forces]]'', on the level titled ''Gromas Mines'', the player must successfully place a detonator on the reactor and escape through not one, but ''five'' slow-moving doors. The trick though is that while the doors stay open as long as the player is beyond their threshold, once he or she crosses it the doors close in a matter of seconds. If the player is caught in between one of the sections however, the doors can be reopened by a switch on the wall.
* The final level of ''VideoGame/SyphonFilter'' has this. You have to make it through a missile silo before the missile blasts off. There's a slowly closing blast door, and the controller has an UnnecessaryCombatRoll button. Do the math.

* One small area in ''VideoGame/{{Penumbra}}'' requires you to flip a lever in a far off room which opens the exit door that slowly closes as you approach. The tension is greater if you didn't kill all the spiders.
