Makes me wonder just how beat to hell stunt people are at the end of their career.

That it me in the mood to watch it again. And by "it," I mean the entire series followed by the movie and a crying spell over Wash.

I do that about once every 6 months.  Sad, really.

Never seen the Movie Hooper??? Burt Reynolds portrayal of a old stuntman popping pills all the time is probably pretty close.

The stunt sequence at the end of that movie is still one of the best ever.

Damn, that was a lot more violently bad-ass than I expected. Glau studied ballet for many years, and her fighting has a fluid grace to it, like violent dance. In the show, Simon has remarked on River's love of dancing, and her grace, on a few occasions. The stunt-woman looked a lot more like a martial-artist/brawler, even though she's blocking out the same scene. Interesting how two different people can make the same thing look so different. In the movie, Glau 'flowed' from one attack to another, and the stunt-woman seemed faster, more explosive, but not quite as fluid.

Apparently Glau has studied martial arts as well, but I'm guessing not in the same "I'm going to make a career out of it" manner that she studied ballet.

I'm a big fan of Rowdy Roddy/Keith David's work in that one. Great brawl.

On the other end of the spectrum, one that's so bad it's good.

Just so you know, I didn't say she was. Also, I notice you didn't post any pics from the video we were watching.

Fake. One of the guys picked up a plastic bottle to use as a weapon. And a couple times, I think I saw strings.

CSB:

The stunt choreographer for that (Hiro Koda) was born on the same day I was, and I studied the same style of Karate as he did (Yoshukai) when his dad was the director of the US branch of the style. Got to go to their house once, but that was when Sensei Koda was far advanced with pancreatic cancer. :(

I know there's a point in the fight where she grabs Jane by the nuts, and I didn't see it. Must've been one of those "hey, it'd be great if we did this instead" moments during filming.

/watched it twice and was still surprised it was a real girl

Very well done choreography, but there had to have been some CGI or other camera tricks involved in recording that. Several of those getting their asses kicked went flying in ways that are impossible without being struck so hard it would induce severe injury.

They wear harnesses with a cable attached to the middle of the back, they can yank the hell out of them that way without injury and make it look like a kick made them fly across the room.

I believe they now have harness rigs that pull you one direction and then another. I read about them being used on Spider-Man 3.

This is one of my favorite fight scenes. It does something I don't see in many others, in the relationship between the fighters. I think it conveys well the sense that these guys may be opponents, but they aren't enemies. There's a certain level of mutual respect between them.

This one's just fun.

Oh god do I feel old.

I love the thousand-yard "killing machine" stare she puts on even though she's just the stuntman.

ALSO: The poor bastard at 1:35! She kicks him and he gets to land on comfy wooden stairs. Umm... "oww".

Summer Glau has really let herself go.

that looked fake as hell, i could see wires and most of the stairs didn't even go anywhere
