  • Casino Royale (2006)
  • Quantum of Solace (2008)
  • Skyfall (2012)

Rick English talks spy movie stunts!

Rick English talks spy movie stunts with Dan and Tom on their show Cracking the Code of Spy Movies.  If you’ve seen at least three spy or action movies in the last two decades, you’ve likely seen Rick’s work in at least one of them.

Rick is an award-winning stunt performer who has been involved with the James Bond, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, BATMAN, and KINGSMAN franchises.   He was also in INCEPTION, The 355, FAST AND FURIOUS, and many more movies over his 20+ year career.

In this episode we discuss some of scenes from some the movies he’s worked on (Including CASINO ROYALE, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT, BOURNE ULTIMATUM, JASON BOURNE, INCEPTION, and more.)

Among the topics we discuss, Rick tells us how the stunt performer business works, how the motorcycle crash stunt he did in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION was done, how they did the zero-gravity hallway fight in INCEPTION, and what he wants from a stunt coordinator.  Listen to find out more. We find it fascinating how they do these things and what can be planned and what can’t. His explanation of that motorcycle crash was quite eye-opening.

This episode helps the moviegoer understand the role of the stunt performer and how they are used. Rick explains some of the techniques they used for some of the specific stunts.  After listening, you’ll understand why he’s won so many awards.

Our next episode will also be with Rick English.  He will tell us all about the stunts in the KINGSMAN series, including the church fight scene and the meat grinder.

Skyfall

Skyfall, editorial content, 007, James Bond, spy movie podcasts, EON Production movies, espionage, Daniel CraigSkyfall, released in 2012, is often ranked at Daniel Craig’s second-best Bond movie, behind Casino Royale, and Eon Productions 23rd Bond movie.   The jury is still out on No Time to Die.    In Skyfall, the real identities of all of MI6’s agents has been stolen.  Patrice is the guy to chase – a great pre-title sequence in this movie – and when MI6 HQ is blown up, Bond who has been missing and thought dead – returns to help.   Patrice leads Bond to Silva – the ultimate bad guy, who has a vendetta to eliminate M (Judi Dench). 

 

The rest is Bond’s attempt to protect M, and the ultimate showdown at Skyfall, the name of James Bond’s home when he was a child.
