13 Movies Based On A True Story (That Are Jam Packed With Lies)
Ah, the movies. They can make us laugh, cry, and believe in the unbelievable. We can be taken to places we’ve never been, and experience stories we never thought possible. But what about when the stories are based on real events? How can we tell the truth from the fiction? How can we even assume, for that matter, that the story does have the vaguest resemblance to something that actually happened?
Well, here is a list of some of the most popular movies based on true stories, and the (extreme abundance of) facts that the filmmakers changed or left out. From Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Bloodsport to Tom Hanks and Paul Greengrass’ Maersk Alabama hijacking, these movies have captivated audiences with their tales of courage and adventure. But, as we will soon see, not everything is as it seems... by a very, very long shot. So strap in, grab your popcorn, and let’s dive into the world of extremely not-fact-checked fiction.
