Die Hard With A Vengeance (1995)

Car: Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL [W126]

McCLAAAAAANE! There are a couple of good airborne moments with the taxi cab in Central Park, but the one that sticks in our heads from the third Die Hard is the jump off the bridge. The car behaves somewhat strangely in mid-air though, suggesting it’s actually being dangled off a crane or something. That, for the record, is CHEATING.

4 RE: Re: Re:Blues Brothers
Well I didn't think I was sounding totally serious either, but sorry if I snapped. That does point up the problem of tone of voice on a forum though. I really enjoyed that artical and then I scrolled to the comments and just found you sounding critical and accusatory - "This is shit - you forgot one." You could have said "great artical, thanks guys, enjoyed that, here are some of my own favourites too." but instead you just said "you forgot". You're not as bad as that Ronin tool who doesn't even seem to understand the point of the artical though. It's about classic JUMPS, not classic CHASES genius. More

It's funny but it's not really the sort of jump they're talking about is it? I doubt they "forgot". Why so serious? I wasn't. I doubt they forgot too but it did leap off the end of the freeway and has about as much realism as some of the CG enhanced clips on the list. More

6 RE: Ronin??????
There are two AWESOME chases in Ronin, but there isn't a significant jump in either of them. A couple of really little moments (more like one-and-a-half) in the first chase, but no more than that. More

7 Ronin??????
Not only is it one of the best car chases ever, (Paris car chase), but also has plenty of leaps and car carnage!!!!!! Doug Liman and Paul Greengrass,(or Witt and Bradley) were inspired by this and included it in their Bourne films. More
