The 1991 movie Point Break features a sequence where Special Agent Johnny Utah jumps out of a plane without a parachute and catches up to another person with a chute while in mid-air.

I believe I've since seen variations on this idea since then as well as other action sequences involving similar moves.

Is Point Break the first appearance of such a sequence? Or had it been done previously?

  • Nice! Thanks! I was curious about at what point it actually became technically feasible to do it. Cameras that would work for movie level capture in those circumstances. – KlandleGlobes Mar 30 at 18:50

According to this documentary, this was first done 12 years earlier than Point Break in the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker.
