I don't know how much of this is FX, and how much of it is stupid 17yo kids with flexable bones and gymantic/martial arts training. It looks far better than the flat out impossible stuff in "Matrix" and "Crouching Tiger", because it actually looks plausable.

Watch it all. It starts slow, but gets good.

I'm moved like this in my dreams, and moving like this is one of the reasons I want a full body upgrade in a century or so.

You're willing to wait for the upgrade in a century to do that? I'd like the upgrade now please.

Freakin amazing

I have a rock-climbing friend who does some killer "dyno" moves, but that footage is the Possum of Awesome. The film makes it look so verite but some of the jumps were superhuman. I hesitate to proclaim anything a "fake" these days; I hesitate to believe any media picture without corroboration. That guy leaping down the rocks, 6 or 8 feet at a time, four times? I've seen cats do that, and apes, but not plain folks. Thanks for the link.

I did some googling last night - it is real. And there is a French website for that guy and some of his friends. He's been in a few ads it seems - running rooftops, etc.

It is a sport/movement called Parkour - which seems to have been picked up globably as 'Urban Freeflow'.
