ok so I finally got around to watching the new Bond on DVD Casino Royale....I remember there was talk about this like a year ago....but man there is some crazy ass parkour stuff that goes on in the beginning.....people jumping and bouncing everywhere.....sick stuff.....Jesse probably knows the stunt guys personally....some of the stuff seemed "too" unbelievable and crazy to do.....like jumps while on a 300ft crane.....

Awesome scene, I didn't even realize it was almost 10 minutes long when I saw it in theaters.

Did you see the entire movie? The torture scene at the end still makes me cringe if I think about it.

Yep, that's Sebastien Foucan, one of the original founders of Parkour. Keep in mind that movies are required to cable and pad most movements for liability, but the reason he makes it look so smooth is that he would do the same without the cabling or padding...15 years or so of training will do that!

His website is www.foucan.com , but it's being updated at the moment so it's of little use ;)

Covering yourself in Salt and passing out naked in the snow to attact Polar Bears to come lick you....really doesnt count...and I would appreciate it if you took that video off YouTube....
