Am trying to remember the name of a film/movie. It starred an actor who was big into martial arts. He was in jail, and escaped by getting hooked up to a passing aircraft. Anyone any ideas ?
What was the film ?(44 posts)
How about more specifics. Hooked up with what? What kind of aircraft? Thunderball the James Bond film had some of what you're looking for. But, he was not martial arts. Have a Vodka and narrow it down somewhat. Many movies have some of what you're looking for but, not all.
Actually having a vodka (or 3 at the moment)
Not James Bond. (can't stand that character)
I never saw the entire film, just a clip. Aircraft was small, Cessna'ish, flying at about 120 knots.
He had got out of the high security prison itself, and then strung a length of wire up between 2 points, connected back to him. I think he may have been in the sea.
Was someone big, like Van Damme, or Seagal. A few years ago.
Yes, Will find out later this month if I stay on the Plavix or not. Poor choices as a youngster did not help. But, no regrets. Still smoke and drink. Did have my carotid artery fixed, and stents in my leg.
I know an old one with Charles Bronson and a man hanging on a helicopter when trying to get someone out of jail.
Doesn't help, I presume?
Haven't been watching any new ones for the past 10 years or so, so I don't know any Steven Seagal (he's worse even than James Bond LOL).
@ warlock - Sean Connery is good in any role, even makes James Bond watchable <LOL>.
LH I very vaguely remember a Chuck Norris film with him in jail but cannot remember much else.
Or is this one of your puzzles for us LOL
German GP today hope it's a good un.
Makes me wonder ...
I always like the bad guy lots and lots better than the good one :P
Mickey Rourke is a lot more entertaining than that Van Damme guy with his ultra serious look.
Same goes for the oldies. Carradine's style is so much more gracefull than Chuck's.
Apart from the fact that the always make the bad guy miss a million opportunities to kill the good guy ...
Sarah, I think that was the one but the old memory ain't what it used to be:) I really liked David Carridine in the TV series Kung Fu and have got his tape on Tai Chi although not that good as he was not a trained Martial Artist. I have a really good one by a Tai Chi Australian Master.
I was lucky to study Tai Chi under a Chinese Master (Yang Style) for a couple of years. He was incredible. He would stand on one leg and ask us to try to push him over. None of us ever did and we had some big chaps in the group. It was something called rooting he explained if I remember right.
Scott Alonso is on Pole. :)
LOL Problem is it is no longer a sport for gentlemen. Think Schumacher, Senna RIP, Prost, etc. Must admit not all winners are so ruthless, but so many are.
Seems par for the course these days.
LOL Wonder if you had seen it yet. I suppose rules are rules but slightly harsh. He went over the line but the only advantage I could see was being able to as by going wide it must take longer to get back on track. Smart of Jenson to spot it though and I hold no candle for Vettel.
Has anyone told Scott Alonso won. LOL
