11 Movies Based On Real Life With Some Alteration Of Facts

All movies do this.

Movies are a great source of enjoyment for anyone who wants to delve into the medium. There are countless movies to watch that are based on real-life but sometimes a plot based on realistic standards can get a bit boring or not so interesting for the movie’s runtime which is why so many directors decide to alter the story a little bit so the movie retains its interest and that it’s a little more fun for the audience. There’s nothing wrong with this. Cinematic history is full of the claim ”Movie based on real-life” but no movie ever does a strict real-life counter because that wouldn’t really sit with the audience well or it’ll take too much runtime just complicating things even furthermore. So today we bring you 11 movies which had true story-based movies that cut important details out of them.
Here’s the list:
