Mention 5 things that is wrong with cqb in movies

Post by Dramatikk » Mon May 09, 2011 2:48 pm

This is more of a fun thread, where we can list up everything that is wrongly portrayed in the movie industry regarding cqb and military tactics. :D

Just to get the ball rolling.

- No matter what kind of weapon they use in movies, there is no recoil.
- SWAT operators always run around like chickens and is constantly aiming down the sights.
- Sometimes the main characters got a unlimited ammo cheat goin on, othertimes they reload all the time.
- A bulletproof vest can stop anything.
- Good guys never miss a single shot and bad guys never get a single killshot, this even though the bad guys is spetsnaz.

Also feel free to mention particular movie scenes or add youtube videos to your list. :wink:

Kind regards, Dramatikk. :)

Haha great topic. I agree, they make SWAT look like boy scouts.

- I've always hated the slow motion jump in mid-air whilst shooting, looks too much like Max Payne! (Video below)



- And the way they fly back 10 feet after being hit, haven't they heard of Newton's Law? (1.59 in the video below)

I'm sure you agree, this video is the biggest wrong! :lol: It's just... wrong!


- Though not related to CQB, I thought I might mention the fact that in almost every movie involving a sniper there is no spotter, the crosshairs are perfectly on the targets head and the projectile always hits the head without even zero'ing it! Nor do they account for wind or drop even at 1000 meters. It's annoying! Shooter made a much more "believable" character but it still needed work.

- Dual wielding pistols and sub-machinguns.
- Busting up solid doors by throwing a shoulder into it.
- LOTS of unnecessary gear on characters weapons.

My favorites have always been when the guys are about to crash a door, and wait until then to chamber a round into the weapon. The other is when you hear a hammer cock back, but the character is carrying a Glock!

I like it when the "Special ultimate badass exteme force" team is stacked outside the entry point, and to make sure the room is safe to enter they first send in one of the operators to check if the room is clear. When this is done then the whole team can come storming into the room shouting, swearing and flagging eachothers heads with the rifle barrels.
:lol:

Spetsnaz movies have got to be the worst! I once saw one where the guy overpowered a Chechen terrorist who was apart of a group that took him hostage, and drowned him in the smallest bucket of what you have ever seen. Literally picked him up and plonked his head into it!

- A knocked over table serves a great cover when you are fighting the swat team inside your house. :lol:

All I'm wondering is, when is their next CQB course? *Maniacly grabbing my wallet willingly to pay any price* :lol:
