12 Strange Things We Often See in Films But Never in Life

To make films look more impressive and interesting, the creators often compose scenes and stories that you will never see in real life. And these scenes are really hard to ignore.

We decided to imagine what almost impossible moments from films in real life will be.

Who will go out without a hat if it’s cold outside? Of course, we want the characters to look attractive, but only if this does not harm realism. In real life, in addition to their real problems, they would also have cold ears.

Of course, viewers don’t want to watch the characters argue and look for a parking place for 30 minutes. But this is a normal situation in any modern city, and films are often set in such places.

In movies, you often see how people regain consciousness after CPR, and then just continue to do what they did. However, if you do CPR in real life, don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work, like in a movie. The meaning of CPR is to partially restore the function of the brain and heart, until more qualified specialists arrive and take some additional measures.

Of course, there are brilliant people who become successful at an early age. But it still remains a mystery how they manage to look so attractive, to be so good in martial arts and to be able to land a plane on top of a mountain. Everest.

In  Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull , for example, the protagonist survives a powerful nuclear explosion, hiding in the refrigerator. He was in a radius where everything was supposed to turn to ashes, and he would also be infected by radiation.

Sometimes it seems to us that the characters are constantly waiting at the door. So, just in case. Well, technically they are, but not in real life. And if they do not open the door after 2 or 3 seconds, the one who knocked will simply go out or break the door.

After someone says, “Turn on the news now!” we see the necessary channel and description of events, starting from the moment that we need. It would be normal if we were talking about something really huge, but when there is news about a robbery at a gas station, it seems really strange.

Very often, female characters who are trying to overcome something or become unrecognizable need a radical change in their appearance. And they need it right now, done with their own hands. The situation is clear, but why do they look like top models after that?

If you do not watch the social drama about poverty, then poor people do not look poor. They have no work, but they eat at restaurants, and students who come to earn some money in Paris rent apartments with a view of the Eiffel Tower.

You can predict a lot of film turns if you consider the following simple rules:

  • The plan you were told will always fail. They have to improvise, and it works.
  • If someone says he’s going to improvise, it will definitely work.
  • If they tell you that they have a plan but don’t tell you its details, it will work, and later you will find out what the plan was about.

There is always a timer on bombs.

In real life, this can only be explained if the criminals have good manners. This timer does not give them anything, but it greatly facilitates the task for the good guys. A criminal can simply start the countdown on his mobile phone or simply track the time. And what’s the point of watching the timer when you are in a blast radius?

Of course, we understand that films are often made about unusual people. However, walking in high heels for several days, jumping in them and performing different tricks in them is too much.
