The Truman Show where Truman and Biff (or whatever his friend's name is) are knocking golf balls off an unfinished bridge, Biff does a brief testimonial for the beer he's drinking, and then they have a heart-to-heart.

I like the bridge scene at the end of Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.

Also the scene in Funny Farm is funny; "That's nit a bridge that's termites holding hands."

I thought the thread title was another title for a movie like Snakes on a Plane.

The opening scene in Ninja Scroll.

I honestly can't think of any others off the top of my head.

I second the nomination for Indy Jones/Temple of Doom and will nominate Indy Jones/Last Crusade for the "invisible" bridge scene

How about the showdown on a bridge in Akira, which involves tanks and laser cannons and crowds of bystanders and ends with the bridge collapsing and everyone on the bridge being killed?

There are some really good scenes from a bridge apparently. I'm surprised that the first one to pop into my head, Truman show was the first one posted. Not really the best just the first one I thought of.

LotR Fellowship gets my vote.

Don't forget Robin Hood Men in Tights.

Spider-Man deserves a mention, but it's not as good as some of the other scenes already said, namely Temple of Doom, River Kwai and FOTR.
