That is why many films can not be trusted!

We seem to know that feature films embellished depict reality, but still we believe in very ridiculous pseudo-facts from the screen. What scientific myths in cinema are especially prevalent among naive viewers - we describe below.

Heart trigger with a defibrillator

How many times have we seen how miracle doctors in movies and TV shows have launched a stopped heart of a patient with a defibrillator! Unfortunately, these are just myths in the cinema: in reality, this method is not used for cardiac arrest itself, but for disturbances in the heart rhythms that only threaten its arrest.

Dr. House

Chloroform lulls instantly

As we managed to learn from the movie, chloroform is a great way to quickly put to sleep the victim. But these are also myths: a person can only “switch off” for a short time if he breathes this tool for at least five minutes in a row. And to fall into a deep sleep is possible only with constant inhalation of chloroform, which in fact will lead not only to sleep, but also to death, because this drug is toxic.

Victim of a criminal

When drowning, you can call for help loudly.

If you watch a feature film where a person drowning in a film is meant to survive, then from time to time he will appear above the water and, floundering, call a savior. However, when a person really drowns, he loses his orientation in the water, and chokes - here you will not cry out loud. Therefore, in reality, many people drown unnoticed. If a person is able to call for help, scream, then he is just scared, but does not sink.

Huge explosion in space

Scientific myths in science fiction cinema are very common. We all saw how, during intergalactic wars, a part of the spacecraft exploded with a roar, forming a huge ball of fire. In fact, the explosion will be nothing more than a short flash - in space, because there is no oxygen for such a spectacular ignition.

The muffler makes a shot from a pistol silent

How many criminals in the movie escaped punishment, just using a silencer for a gun! But in reality it is again myths - the silencer can only suppress the noise from the shot, but it will not pass completely silently.

Silenced Pistol

Criminologists are the best to solve crimes

Alas, this is another pseudo-fact.The work of the forensic department is certainly very important in finding a criminal, but its effectiveness is greatly exaggerated. The main task of criminologists is not to solve a crime, but to collect evidence. And no one has yet come up with a single registry where the DNA of the entire population of the country would be collected in order to easily identify an intruder, say, by fingerprint, blood stain or hair.

Forensic Examination

Mafiosi do not hide their activities

Myths from the cinema make many believe that representatives of the mafia and any other pretentious criminal organizations live quietly in front of everyone and even advertise their occupation before everyone, even the police. Of course, in real life such things are very carefully hidden.

Two Mafiosi

You can fight almost endlessly

Epic scenes of fights in the movies instilled in the naive audience the belief that if you know how to fight, you can always stand against the opponent, even receiving a dozen heavy blows. Brave movie heroes really fight with opponents for a very long time - as a rule, at the beginning of the fight, the villains have the advantage, but by the end of the fight, the positive hero even after strong blows to the stomach and head quite cheerfully seizes the initiative and defeats the opponent! It's a pity,that this is just some of the myths from the movie - in reality, one blow to the face may be enough for a person to lose consciousness.

Hotel fight

Killing bad guys isn't punished

Still popular myths from the movie: the goodie always remains right when he kills the villains. Writers who create such a feature film appeal to the character's good intentions, because he protects himself and his loved ones, and even the entire city / country / planet. Nobody even arrests him for killing bad guys! But in life, such a character would still have to answer for his deed and walk around the courts - and it is not a fact that the verdict would be in his favor.

The jump through the glass is not terrible

Action films very often give rise to quite ridiculous and even dangerous myths in the cinema: for example, because of the films, it is believed that jumping through a glass barrier will not do much harm. The characters manage to break through the glass so that they either get no wounds at all, or get rid of a pair of scratches. In fact, broken glass can leave a large number of lacerated wounds on a hapless jumper, and, consequently, will lead to a great loss of blood and death.

In the movie, there are often clichéswho have long outlived themselves - the most ridiculous of them, see this video:
