The Most Scientifically Inaccurate Movies Ever

An action-packed science fiction movie could be really entertaining, but just remember the mention of “fiction” in the word and you will realize how scientifically inaccurate these films really are. Enjoy this list curated by the Phraset review team.

The Day After Tomorrow

In the 2004 movie, global warming leads to the next ice age after a series of catastrophic weather events. One major occurrence is that the ocean current stops. The movie embellishes how dramatic and quick the change occurs, which makes for good entertainment but not sound science.


Bruce Willis saves the Earth in Armageddon by landing on the surface of an asteroid set to collide with the planet. He detonates a hydrogen bomb at the center and splits the asteroid into two pieces, so they float by the planet. Even if Willis had the perfect most powerful bomb, the odds of not knowing an asteroid “the size of Texas” will hit Earth in less than 20 days is quite impossible.

I Am Legend

The goal for Will Smith in I Am Legend is to develop a vaccine to cure people from a virus that essentially wiped out humankind. The virus mutates and becomes airborne. Infected people spread the disease by biting others. As for Smith’s character, who doesn’t have the virus, his blood won’t help him create a vaccine because vaccines train the immune system to recognize pathogens by first introducing traces of the virus to the body.

The most cringe-worthy one-liners in action films

If you love a little action and entertainment in your life, then you will love these action-packed yet cringe-worthy quotes curated by the Phraset review team. Prepare to groan!

Air Force One

“Get off my plane!”

Can we really believe Harrison Ford as the President of the United States duking it out with Russian hijacker, played by Gary Oldman, who has somehow snuck onto Air Force One. Strange. Very strange.

Batman and Robin

“Alright everybody. Chill!”

Arnold Schwarzenegger made a career out of delivering cheesy one-liners, and this one, plus a ton of other random quips, just don’t make any sense.

Independence Day

“Welcome to Earth!”

This is one of the most disastrous one-liners Will Smith is forced to utter in this trashy movie, but it’s also one of the more memorable ones because he says it after punching an alien in the head.

Hard to Kill

“I’m gonna take you to the bank Senator Trent… to the blood bank.”

Steven Seagal’s movies generally rate high on the cringe-o-meter, and this one in particular is a shocker.

X Men

“You know what happens when a toad gets struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else.”

This super-lame one-liner is said by Storm, played by Halle Berry, just before she electrocutes the bad guy mutant named Toad.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

“I don’t like sand. It’s coarse, rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere. But not like you. You’re everything soft…and smooth.”

This is Anakin’s attempt to sweet talk Padme while talking about his dislike for sand. Just weird.

Top Gun

“You are still dangerous… but you can be my wingman anytime.”

Featuring some super corny banter, this one-liner pushes it over the edge between Iceman and Maverick. Even though we love a bromance, this is simply wrong.
