    I really loved this movie so much but this fight scene was the only thing that I thought was a bit too much over the top. BUt nevertheless the camera movement was absolutely awesome

    You have to wonder why on earth people 'dislike' a clip like this where a Director is talking so passionately and engagingly about something he's helped create that teaches us all so much. Quite sad really.

    I love this fight sequence.

    My ONLY wish while watching it is that you would be able to see the merc that's running through the buildings during the outside sequences more than just the time you needed the money shot of them both jumping between buildings at once. You followed him the first time, then he just disappears until he's right under her. In a scene with such amazing continuity, that bit stuck out a lot.

    The chasing sequence was one of my favorite scenes of the movie. The unique shots, the panning, and timing them all together just put me in awe when I watched it in theaters. And the Atlantian suits were so dope. Great movie!

    Love that DC finally hired a director that has a passion for this kind of stuff. Too bad the script was complete trash. Loved the cast though.

    Great breakdown. Thank you!
    Question: At 4:48, we learn that the fake roof in the parking is only 2-3 feet up but then at 5:55, the reason for the "Texas Switch" is that the stunt double is hooked up to a safety lime. Why do you need a safety line when you are only 2-3 feet off the ground?
