If, like most film depictions, all that violence is dramatised as part of an action montage, then I think it 'feels' more like watching a Tom & Jerry cartoon. There is a distancing from the reality of it, caught up in the overall scene of an action movie.
I'm inclined to agree. I've seen some pretty brutal stuff in fictional visual forms, none of it will ever hold a candle to the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami in real life. Something being real makes it far worse, and it being there and all around you as opposed to portrayed on a screen does the same. As such, any comparison to seeing things in real life is inherently invalid.
