Best Stunts Of 2023


Movie fans all love a high-adrenaline stunt scene. Whether it’s a breathtaking car chase or a death-defying leap, film stunts are the heart-pounding moments that make us gasp and marvel at the performers who do them. The history of film stunts dates back to the early days of silent cinema, where pioneers like Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd pushed the boundaries of physical comedy and risk-taking. As the film industry has grown, so has the complexity and scale of stunts. With the introduction of new technologies, filmmakers are now able to explore new possibilities, giving birth to iconic moments and new stunt stars such as Tom Cruise who draws in mass audiences with his Mission Impossible franchise.

The question remains, could you survive the booby-trapped house of ‘Home Alone?’ Well, to save putting yourself through that horrible ordeal, the guys at Vsauce on YouTube have made an eye-opening video taking us through the science behind the traps and just what damage it would cause to the human body…
