Movies that defy physics

Recommended Posts

In the movie Wanted, the characters can curve a bullet being fired from a gun. Mythbusters tested this and found it's impossible. This isn't possible for several reasons, but the main reason was because once a bullet is fired, no lateral forces act on the bullet (even wind would be very negligible) and the bullet's forward momentum is too much to overcome.


More recently, in Gravity there are several things that wouldn't happen. One example is that the debris after the explosion is moving very fast and passes them like once every hour and a half, but this wouldn't happen because objects in the same orbit have roughly the same velocity relative to each other so there's no way that the debris could hit them with a high speed.
