The World’s Greatest Stunts Documentary

Don’t you just love skimming through YouTube and finding an absolute gem? Well this is one of the best videos I’ve seen and from the look of it (and music) I think this just may be from the 80s. We get to see the best stunts from Rambo, Commando and many more with interviews with Arnold and Mel Gibson to name but a few. It’s a fascinating insight into the unsung heroes of action movies and it’s making me reach for my Rambo box set as we speak.

Here is the synopsis from the YouTube page too: The history of films is over-flowing with moments of amazing action scenes, moments where stunt performers – whether to elicit a gasp or a laugh – have often risked life and limb to thrill us.
Film clips included are from Commando, Rambo, Roadhouse, Running Man, Pink Panther, Octopussy, Stage Coach, Apocalypse Now, Ben Hur, Romancing the Stone, Skin Deep, Mad Max, Red Heat and many others.

This spectacular programme is a tribute to big screen action and is packed with unforgettable stunts and mega stars.
