In the movie Twister science is misused in a lot of ways and used in some ways. Throughout this essay you will find out in which ways science is misused and used. An example is in the movie the truck goes through an explosion of fire and when it comes out it is absolutely fine it doesn’t even have one scratch. Another example is there is no way that if you tie yourself to a pipe that you wouldn’t fly away.

In real life the paint on the truck would come off and the truck would be absolutely destroyed and have scratches on it but in the movie it came out absolutely new. Here are some more ways how science is misused in the movie Twister. Another example is the last twister in the movie was classified as an F-5.

F-5 level tornadoes will destroy steel reinforced concrete buildings, so the entire ranch, house, barn, and all, should have been swept down to the ground and destroyed. Another thing is that the chance that you survive a F-5 tornado is very rare. Flying wood splinters and glass at that speed can shred clothes and skin and cause a really bad injury. Here are some ways how science was somewhat used correctly... Show More
