Cinematic Secrets of Speed’s Spectacular Bus Stunt!

One of the best action movies of the 1990’s.

The bus scene was really cool… but how did they do that? And why did the audience buy into it? Cinematic secrets ahoy!

One thought on “Cinematic Secrets of Speed’s Spectacular Bus Stunt!”

  1. Good video on film trickery, that. Thanks for sharing! A lot of this is stuff I studied years ago for my degree in computer animation, with an emphasis on film, but it’s really nice to see it explained concisely and effectively.

    …that said, I never did buy the jump. I still think that was the dumbest part of the movie, even worse than the subway beheading. Big spectacle, dramatic tension… but it just asked too much to be believable, suspension and halos included.
