Casino Royale Parkour Chase

It occurred to me after my last entry that I couldn’t post any more Parkour videos without first posting the kick-ass Parkour chase from Casino Royale. This sequence features the great Sébastien Foucan, one of the founders of Parkour (of course, people have been doing Parkour since people have been around, but Foucan was one of the originators of modern Parkour as a structured form).

If you haven’t seen this clip, you’re in for a treat. Watching Sébastien Foucan trace is like watching Michael Jordan play basketball or Serena Williams play tennis. It truly is a thing of beauty.

Let’s even make a little game of it. How many of Jack’s moves from DATA RUNNER can you spot in this sequence?
