I think we’re all aware of the fact that movies are enhanced in some way, shape, or form. Whether it’s something as large as special effects and graphics that you might see in a movie like Avatar or as small as something like a person’s lips looking a little bit bigger than they are, movies do what they can to get their point across.
However, some movies just go extremely overboard with stuff that simply doesn’t happen in the real word. The movies I’m referring to are action movies. Heroes in these movies aren’t super heroes but it sure as hell seems like they are.
Check out these four situations that are quite unrealistic…..
One Bullet Blowing Up a Car
How many action movies have you seen where a cop, hero, whoever, points a gun at a car, pulls the trigger and then BAM! The car blows up. I mean unless there’s some serious gasoline around the car this wouldn’t happen. And if if there were gasoline there would just be fire, not an explosion until the fire caught the gas in the engine of the vehicle. The only thing I ever liked about the movie The Last Action Hero is the scene where Arnold is in the real world and he shoot a car expecting to explode only it doesn’t.
Getting Shot and Being Completely Fine
“Sure no problem! Just shoot me in the arm and I’ll be happy to use it in a fight.” I feel like this should be the mantra in about any “dude” flick out there. Let me tell you something. If you get shot in the arm not only are you not lifting that arm but you might even have trouble walking because of the pain. You sure as hell don’t lift it and fight other people with the injury.
One Punch knocking people out cold
It happens in Karate movies more than anything else but it’s all the same. Nearly every single time you see a hero kicking ass by use of his fists or feet it usually only takes one hit to knock the bad guys out. That is of course unless the bad guy is the main bad guy and can fight too. But even Bruce Lee couldn’t just punch a guy and then he’s completely done. Only in rare cases in real life does one kick or punch completely put a guy out of commission. I’m afraid taking on 10 guys just isn’t as easy as movies make it out to be.
The explosion jump
I think I’ve seen this about 700 times. It’s classic. A hero is running against the clock because they know something is about to explode. The minute the clock strikes zero they jump and then the explosion enhances the jump greatly and there is no injury. Usually in these films the main characters aren’t too far from the explosions and the explosions usually contain C4. Come on dudes. A simple graze or amplified air isn’t the damage a crazy explosion like that would do.
