Science! Real-life injuries of movie action heroes

YouTube channel documents maladies from action movies

By  

The Screen Junkies channel on YouTube, which sees success with its "Honest Movie Trailers" series, has started a new series that should fascinate movie fans and the medical community.

The first video, "Honest Action - Die Hard", chronicles Bruce Willis' character, John McClane, from the first "Die Hard" film and details what real injuries he'd face if this wasn't a movie. Basically, McClane would "Die Hard" several times through the course of the adventure (but you probably already knew that, right?)

With such a vast action-movie library to choose from, I can see this series documenting many, many more contusions, fractures and lacerations. I mean, between Stallone and Schwarzenegger alone, that's about 30 different videos.
