Honest Action, New Series Shows How Many Lives Action Heroes Really Need to Survive a Film

Honest Action is a new series from Screen Junkies that shows how many lives famous action heroes really need to survive a film. To answer that question, they recieve actual medical input from Dr. Adam Friedlander. In the first episode, Screen Junkies examines New York cop John McClane — played by Bruce Willis — in the classic 1988 action movie Die Hard.

It’s a bit cliche to complain about action films being unrealistic, so we decided to take our usual baseless complaining and put some science behind it.
