Storyline

Last year a team of French Free Runners captivated Londoners when they scaled some of the city's most famous landmarks from the Albert Hall to HMS Belfast for Channel 4's Jump London . This time they've decided to take on the whole country in a new project that ranges from Edinburgh to Cardiff. Free Running, or Le Parkour, involves literally leaping from roof to roof in a death-defying, yet beautiful, series of jumps, slides and somersaults. It is a discipline combining an extraordinary athleticism and lack of fear - created by Sebastien Foucan and his friends - that has spread across the world. Foucan sees Free Running as more than a spectacle, it is a way of life, with a spiritual dimension plucked from popular culture and allowing an escape from everyday reality. For Jump Britain , Foucan and his team are joined by members of the burgeoning UK Parkour scene as they tackle some of the UK's most iconic sites including Edinburgh Castle and the Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland, the ...

Bigger and Better than Jump London
20 January 2005 | by (Leicestershire, England) – See all my reviews

When i watched Jump London on TV 16 months ago i knew that Parkour was for me. I started practicing the discipline the next day and have been training ever since so obviously i was excited about the sequel.

I was pleased to hear that the project was much larger than Jump London and that it was to include some British Free Runners as well as the 'elite French' once again.

Visually the film is very impressive, the editing and pace of the journey is great and i found myself getting lost in the film and thoroughly enjoying it. Backed up by a superb soundtrack matched only by the beautiful scenery and monumental architecture, this truly was better than Jump London.

It seemed much more personal and more about the people than Jump London. Viewers were able to see how Sebastien actually is and to witness his hilarious sense of humour and laid-back attitude, something i can vouch for being genuine having met him twice. Focus on the British Free Runners also meant Sebastien had to share the spotlight and the mix of action was good.

I look forward to Mike Christie's next project and wish him all the best in it's production. Do us all proud Mike. :) -Blane
