P.S. for those of you that are interested - a different part of the brain is triggered when we see harrowing situations on film compared to the normal stuff. It is thought that our brain is actually processing this information in a special way so we can react when we get into certain situations. Therefore to say what a 'natural' reaction is is difficult - also it suggests that many people may try to react in a similar way to what they would have seen as 'succesful' in other situations (I'll have to try that Bruce Lee sumersaulting kick).
