Let me just start by saying thank you to every stunt double...EVER! They work their butts off, putting themselves into literal danger, to bring you a good movie. Wherever you are, please stand up and give a round of applause to these men and women. It's saddening how little respect they get. No one realizes the star doesn't do the stunts performed in these movies.These men and women get less pay and wayyy less praise. I for one respect these people. You're wonderful. So without further ado I give you...
THE TOP 10 BEST ALL-TIME STUNT DOUBLES!!!!! part 1 (first 5)
10. Ted White as Jason Voorhees - Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter
Ok, so maybe he wasn't "great" but you know what? I don't care. My childhood nightmares were fueled by Jason Voorhees and I couldn't find any more of his stunt doubles. Therefore, I couldn't leave him out. The saddest part of this though is that he didn't want to be Jason. He needed money so he played him. He didn't even want credit for it. I have to admit, back then I wouldn't have wanted credit either. Enraged parents were everywhere because of horror films and he would only come under fire for his role.
9. Micheal Owen as Frank Castle - The Punisher
This dude is pretty cool. Sorry for sounding like an idiot but it's true. This movie had a budget of a whopping $30 million. This sounds like a lot because let's be honest we've all seen movies with at least a $100 million budget. This movie has some pretty bad to the bone stunts. The fight scenes alone show why I put Owen in here.
8. Glenn Foster and Trevor Habberstad as Tony stark and Iron Man (respectively)
I mentioned them both at the same time because they're basically the same person. I know all I'm gonna get for #8 on them is WHAT?!?!?!?! YOU IDIOT!!!! but I don't really care. The stunts are pretty amazing in this movie BUUUT I think it was a bit over-the-top. I'm not going to judge them for this because I loved this movie as well but it was lacking in a somewhat realistic factor. I like the superheroes to at least be somewhat believable just for a appealing factor.
7. Chad Cleven and Chris Daniels/Holland Diaz/Colin Follenweider as Toby Maguire and Spider-Man (respectively)
Again, all these people because there are many doubles and the fact that Toby and Spidey are the same person. The stunts in this movie were great, especially since this is a movie from 2007. Yes 2007 isn't that long ago but stunts have improved a lot since then. It has been 7 years.
6. No I'm stopping here its 9:11 p.m. and I'm lazy sorry.
