Jackie Chan Demonstrates CGI-Less Stunts

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NorqujoOe8

The problem with many modern action movies is that they rely so heavily on CGI and wire-assisted stunts that they just lose any sense of realism, and feel even more like movies than they would otherwise.

That’s why Jackie Chan has always been an outlier in the action movie community. He not only does all his own stunts, but helps train others to do the same. This video shows him and his crew training to do some of the more painful stunts found in many of his martial arts movie.

Sadly, I think Chan is one of the last bastions of this type of movie fighting. It seems that only a few select foreign actors (Tony Jaa) are carrying on this sort of tradition as CG technology becomes cheaper and more accessible. But real stunts, in my eyes, will always be of higher quality.
