10 Insane Movie Stunts You Won't Believe Tom Cruise Performed
10. Riding Shotgun - Knight And Day (2010)
While Knight and Day's car chase does feature plenty of CGI, there are still several moments where Tom Cruise lives up to his daredevil reputation. Behind-the-scenes footage shows the sunglasses-wearing actor strapped to the hood of a speeding vehicle weaving in and out of traffic, which is where his character spends most of the scene. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nldDyEo335s The most impressive stunt of the car chase comes when Cruise leaps onto the roof of a moving car from above. While the actor was secured with a harness and wearing protective padding, it hardly lowers the risks when you consider the amount of variables involved in throwing an A-list movie star in the direction of moving traffic.
I don't do social media, so like or follow me in person but please maintain a safe distance or the authorities will be notified. Don't snap me though, I'll probably break. I was once labelled a misogynist on this very site in a twenty paragraph-long rant for daring to speak ill of the Twilight franchise. I stand by what I said, it's crap.
