Homework Help: Film and Physics

Posted by MOvie Guru on Monday, December 31, 2007 at 4:41pm.

I am doing a paper that entails my knowledge of physics to prove errors in the movie Transformers. There is one scene in the movie where Shia (Sam, the hero) falls in Optimus Prime's hand, from around 20 stories high. Obviously Sam should ooze out of Prime's hand, but of course he doesn't. I was wondering if this error can be said to be a true error due to Newton's 1st and 2nd laws of motion. For the 1st law, Sam is stopped by an external force applied to him, otherwise he would keep falling. For the 2nd law, it proves why Prime is unharmed after the fall, and thus why Sam should be harmed and not unharmed like he actually is. Ok, so any information would be great. Thanks a billion!
