Where's Steve McQueen?

Willis lost hearing in his ear from the scene where he fires from under the table at a gunman standing above, and I am surprised they didn't include Premium Rush where Levitt crashed into the back of a real taxi car window and walked away needed 32 stitches to his right arm.

Weak listing of Jackie Chan's stunts. He's done much, much bigger stunts than some of those shown.

Not to mention full-on no-fakes fight scenes where he and another pro just said "Let's really hit each other for the sake of film" - See "Wheels on Meals"...

That scene, on a big IMAX screen, is terrifying at some points.

Also did his own stunts.  Was on the same High School wrestling team with Mick Foley

I'm still pretty sure I'd be scared to be Harold Lloyd perched over one small mattress leading either to a 4' clunk on the roof or a 40+ foot splat at the foot of the building.

But for some fun, watch the Harrison Ford video using the HTML YouTube viewer sped up to 1.5x. The stunts at 15x make Raiders seem much more like the 1930s movies it pays homage too.

I watched Mick Foley eat pasta at a little Italian joint north of LAX.

IIRC there was a link on Fark some time ago that said that stunt was famously miscredited (not a real word, but I'll use it anyway) to Steve McQueen, but I'm happy to be proven wrong.
