Jacob's Ladder  -

Yikes. I know it by reputation only. No idea what the story is, and that's the first clip of the movie I've ever seen (to my knowledge).

A top 100 for me, it is one of those WTF kind of film where both the viewer and the main character are going down a rabbit hole of trying to grasp what is happening.

The one that stands out in my mind is this one from Jackie Chan's First Strike.
I thought you might have some Jackie Chan, but I only remembered the snowboard leap into the helicopter from First Strike.

You scooped me again with MI:II. I thought of a bunch of great jumps from the series - the hole in the bridge in 3, the leap back inside the hotel in 4 (my favorite), and ankle breaker in the last one (which I used as the first image because it looked best.)


The Die Hard fire hose building jump is a Great pick.


1SO, I don't recognize the first two, but the 3rd looks like Bourne Ultimatum (Bourne probably has a few good jumps in each film eh), and the 4th looks like Supercop. Good stunt. :)

Mission: Impossible Fallout
Fast & Furious 6
Bourne Ultimatum
Supercop - I was actually looking for the moment where Michelle Yeoh falls backwards off the train onto the windshield of Jackie Chan's pursuit vehicle. Talk about a leap of faith, but this was very tricky to get the physics right.

I think Who Am I has an even more vertigo-inducing scene, but it's not really a "jump". I shake my head at this on the edge of a building portion of the fight sequence, which like 30 seconds of an 11 minute fight.
