10 of the Most Insane Death-Defying Stunts from Science Fiction Movies

Science fiction and fantasy movies are full of amazing visuals — but the coolest thing about any SF film is usually that there's a real live human being in the middle of all that overwhelming strangeness. We want to see ourselves, in all our human frailty, juxtaposed with the danger and mystery of fantasy — and oftentimes, it's up to hard-working stunt performers to make that happen. Sometimes the only way to get a really cool moment of danger and excitement on screen is to risk smashing one of those stunt guys to bits.

Here are 10 stunts from science fiction and fantasy movies that really could have killed someone. (Culture)

The Matrix Reloaded had so many cool stunts squeezed into the movie. Its rare that you have so many stunts choreographed together to flow in the narrative of an action sequence like the highway sequence in The Matrix Reloaded, but it was done so well with seamless precision and engineering.

being a stunt double is really a difficult job, audience are amazed on cool stunt scenes wherein they do not really reflect how dangerous those stunts really were.
