A unique look at the world of stuntmen, perfect for Indy fans!
25 February 1999 | by (Princeton Jct. NJ) – See all my reviews



This is a neat little documentary, aired on television and released on video. It is hosted by a bearded Harrison Ford who does some of his own stunts in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Many of the stunts in the film are shown and discussed at length. Ford chats with other stuntmen on the set of Raiders of the Lost Ark, and one point boasts that he has to work harder then real stuntmen, because he has to stay in character during the stunts he performs. That aside, for most of the documentary Ford stays in awe of the stuntmen, as probably most viewers would be. The documentary is rather fascinating and features plenty of insight into the stunt world by not just the stuntmen, but Ford and even Steven Speilberg. This documentary also takes a look at the history of movie stunts and shows a few stunts dating back to the early days of motion pictures, and shows a few frightening stunt mishaps. While it is tough to find, I recommend it for anyone who is a Raiders of the Lost Ark fan, or is interested in movie stunts.
