Cult movie for skydivers
23 May 2005 | by hak-7See all my reviews

This short movie has probably reached cult status in skydiving clubs over the world. Firstly, because it is all about skydiving. Secondly, because it really catches some of the spirit of the sport: cool people doing some crazy stuff. The longer movie Fandango based on this movie does indeed contain a remake of this scene, but I prefer the original in Proof.

Although this movie is a must for anyone who has ever tried skydiving, it also appeals to a broader audience. Everybody is guaranteed a good laugh. On the other hand, if you are about to try skydiving for the first time in your life, don't watch this movie first: you run the risk of loosing your nerves!
