007 Physics

Recently I watched the film 007 Casino Royale, the first installment of the James Bond series with the new Bond (Daniel Craig), and while the movie was very good (and equally dense) there were many inconsistencies with the real world, such as the statistical improbability of the cards, but this is a physics blog so I will talk about the physics of a certain action packed chase scene in the beginning. 

The parkour scene takes us through a construction site. One thing I noticed is that at one point when the man being chased jumps down an elevator shaft, uses the wall to jump back and forth, and I believe that the force of friction between his shoes and the wall would not be great enough to support his jumps. Also, there is a large explosion that happens very close to the villain, and the blast would have most certainly effected him, the momentum of the explosion would be enough to carry him through the air. Lastly, James Bond makes about a 25 ft jump, rolls and then falls another 10 feet onto a metal crate which he crushes. The impulse delivered to bond would have been enough to kill him, or at least knock him out. But he just shakes it off and the chase continues.
