Running into motorcycles

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in "real life", wouldn't the Interceptor's front end, if not the entire car, have been totaled when max ran into the motorcycles at the bridge? If running into a deer can total a car, I was under the assumption hitting a motorcycle could as well (especially when both you and the motorcycle are going at a fast speed in a colision course).

Supposedly, they swerved and lost the game of "chicken". Convenient, isn't it? Besides, we needed those beauty shots of the Interceptor behind Toecutter and at the end when the explosion went off. :-) I always thought the stunt man that got whacked in the head with the bike spokes must've taken a few Restoril to help him sleep for a month after that hit. Ouch!! regs, Steve

I forgot where I read it, but I heard that the stunt man was wearing a helmet too big for him, and while it cetainly hurt, it wasn't as bad as it looked--the helmet was rotating on his head vs his head being whacked forward--watch again and see if you agree

Sort of. It was a Nintendo game, but before that it was the name of a popular Japanese comic book character in the 70s. He was an assasin. It now appears every once in a while as a animated movie. Your video store may have one entitled, The Proffessional: Golgo 13. I've seen it a few times, I thought it was preety good.
