23 Things Action Movies Got Wrong on Violence

Normally, I am loathe to link to any site that shows memes, but Cracked.com got this one right. Included in the list is a few fun facts on our beloved firearms and Cracked goes further on other weapons systems, like the Katana and its unique properties.

Fortunately, Cracked is not one of those cheesy websites that only put one meme/picture per page. All 23 are broken down on only four pages.

Hit the link for the list (make sure to have an ad-blocker installed).

    Say what you will, about semi auto's vs.full auto.....But I'll take a John Wayne Revolver and Carbine. Over any Arnold Schwarzenegger M-16 / M-60 anytime. John Wayne has been gone 20+ years............And John still hasn't had to reload.

    Also they missed a lot from explosive weapons like rocket / grenade launchers.

    But well Hollywood and video games are a bit the same here.
    But now why we should blame entertainment try to entertain with something spectacular ?
    I mean this quite dates and yeah unrealism with some exaggerations of somewhat plausible things
