This is the worst bridge in the world, every director dreams of blowing it up
The San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge is arguably the worst bridge in the world.
It suffered countless nuclear strikes, was bitten in two by sharks, penetrated by a meteor shower, and was destroyed by a major earthquake.
Incomplete statistics. In the American movies alone, the bridge has been frustrated more than ten times, spanning nearly a century.
The bridge was officially opened to traffic in 1937. Since then, Hollywood has been doing its best to close it.
As America’s infrastructure continues to decline, there is now another place where you should avoid bridges, and that is in the movies.
The Golden Gate Bridge was overturned for the first time as early as 1955.
In the movie "It Came from Beneath the Sea", it was attacked by a sticky octopus.
Americans are no longer keen on infrastructure, perhaps not because of the hollowing out of the industry, but maybe they really don't like it.
The last time the Golden Gate Bridge was broken into pieces was in the 2015 "San Andreas" movie.

In Star Trek, it is a sandbag for the villain to practice their hands.

The Golden Gate Bridge is like the tables, chairs and benches of roadside stalls. Although things are not related to it, they are often damaged by drunken men fighting.
In "Monsters vs. Aliens", it was brutally smashed as a background board for monsters and aliens duel.
In "Pacific Rim", it was subverted because it blocked the monster's way forward.
In "Godzilla", the Golden Gate Bridge was once again invaded by foreign objects, but this may be the least invaded.
In the film, Godzilla only tore off a few strands of the slings on the bridge, as if understanding the difficulty of the bridge over the years.
In 2006, the Golden Gate Bridge in the X-Men was uprooted.
In the film Magneto was dissatisfied with the city planning of San Francisco and believed that the construction of the bridge did not take into account the travel of residents on Alcatraz Island, so the entire bridge was pulled up and redistributed.

Locals believe that although the Golden Gate Bridge in the movie has been destroyed countless times, it has also established San Francisco's reputation.
The use of CG technology in the movie to pay more attention to the cash gate bridge is equal to the flow of San Francisco. It also brings about more serious problems than the destruction of the bridge, such as deconstructing landmarks and grabbing the right to speak.
So in the foreseeable future, I think the tragedy of the Golden Gate Bridge will continue.
Until one day it will no longer be the benchmark of civilization or the end of aging.
Falling apart amidst cheers or lingering amidst elegance, this is the proposition left to us by the Golden Gate Bridge using its own body as an example.
