7 Questionable Gadgets for Criminals and Crime Fighters
Whether it’s a heist or spy movie, crime in film wouldn’t be the same without all of the high-tech disguises, fancy getaway cars, and highly engineered weaponry.
These tools typically reference a familiar technology for credibility, but then apply it in new and unheard of ways. For example, the scene in Ocean’s 8 where Helena Bonham Carter’s character uses a pair of glasses to 3-D-print a convincing replica without looking at all sides of the necklace.
In context it’s easy to overlook the stretch — who wants to spend an entire movie fact-checking? But if you take a step back, there’s no denying that some of these tricks wouldn’t work offscreen. Check out seven eyebrow-raising examples in the video above.
