Was channel surfing last friday and watched a show called ‘getaway’ on UPN. According to the show a number of stuntmen have to outrun cops to get to a goal. The cops can do anything they want to stop them including ramming, crashing etc.
On the show they claim the chases are real and not staged/fake.
What makes me suspicious is that when they showed the interior of the cars there were no rollcages. Not even 5 point harnesses, just your basic seatbelt. Hmmm…
At one point one of the runners crashes into 2 parked cop cars doing 50-60 mph turning his car into trash. Quick cut and he’s running from the wreck without a scratch. Double-hmmmm.
Anyone have the scoop on this? Are stuntmen just Uber-menschen or what?
