Improvised tools in movies/TV shows?

I was watching Hard Boiled on DVD when I saw this MacGyver-style moment. In this scene, the two good guy cops are stuck in a secret room behind a hospital morgue. Unable to open the big steel door, one of the cops decides to unscrew a metal pipe to fill it with some gun powder and then blow it up by shooting at it. He doesn't own a multi-tool so he improvises:Got no pliers? No problem! Handcuffs work just as well. MacGyver would be proud...Works on bullets too!
The other cop in that scene has a SAK-style tool but it's hard to make out what it is. It's only on screen for a split second and you barely see any notable details.
Can anyone else think of some other movies where someone improvises with some clever make-shift tools?
This is called a Swiss Army Knife. Do you know what Switzerland is? Switzerland is a place where they don't like to fight, so they get people to do their fighting for them while they ski and eat chocolate. - Larry David
