As a rule, scenes with animals fighting people are really spectacular. But sometimes, as film directors try to create mind-blowing scenes, they completely forget about some biological aspects. Well, these scenes really make our blood run cold but animal experts always notice such goofs and add, “No, I don’t believe this.”

1. The Revenant (2015)

The episode where Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is attacked by a mother bear is one of the most spectacular and unrealistic moments in this film. The predator tears the hero with its claws and fangs and jumps on him. For your information: Bears’ bite force is 1,160psi (as if a human bit a sausage), their claws are 4-6 in long, and their weight is around 660-880 lb. As you can see, it’s impossible to survive such a figh

Here’s another strange thing. The grizzly bear attacks the main character because he’s a threat to its cubs. There’s nothing more important for a mother than protecting her children, but the bear just stops in the middle of their fight, leaves its alive victim, and goes away.

In another scene, Glass takes his wet clothes off and hides inside the horse to get warm. It’s a method used by many soldiers during wars but… the hero spends a whole night inside. Since the snow is everywhere, we understand that it’s below zero and the corpse should freeze in a few hours. If it happened in real life, the hero wouldn’t have a chance to get out in the morning. He’d probably freeze to death at night.

All in all, though The Revenant is based on a true story, it’s better to treat it as a feature film.

    And it does it very well. The new posts are high quality and pass the
