Watch a Trauma Surgeon React to Action Injuries

Vulture’s new series, Expert Witness, we ask scientists, historians, and other professionals to give Hollywood movies a good old-fashioned fact-check. Action-movie stars like Tom Cruise and Ryan Reynolds are always jumping out of windows, dodging cars, getting stabbed, and taking bullets like its nothing. Unfortunately, the human body is not that indestructible. In this episode of Expert Witness, we sit down with Dr. Spiros Frangos, Professor of Surgery at the NYU School of Medicine, to see how accurately characters respond to their injuries.
