Dukes of Hazzard

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Dukes of Hazzard

I just came back from seeing dukes of hazzard, and was wondering who else saw it who could tell me how realistic it was, like how much real damage would happen to a car when it was being launched off a ramp and all like in the movie. just courious. and it was a pretty good movie by the way.

The stunt drivers do it and pull it off but you would have bent chassis, rims, ****ed up suspension and somethin jiggling afterwords

I haven't seen it yet but i plan on seeing it soon. It looks good though, especially Daisy :drool:



Well lets put it this way; they had over 30 General Lees and destroyed like 28 of them :wink2:

You should have stayed for the credits, they showed the real landings to a couple of the jump scenses, the cars really got trashed.

Oh and does anybody know who did the stunt driving in that movie? Anybody who can drift and handle a car that big and heavy that well at high speeds is an awesome driver

Well if you ever watch the original shows, when they jump watch closely when it lands, you can see the body and everything just crumple. They use(d) concrete blocks in the rear to help balance out the weight. I think they were real cars they wrecked (in the new movie) but were junkers and may not all of been 69's either. I heard somewhere that for the original show they used about 3 cars and episode.

also on the original show im pretty sure the cars they used for jump scenes where mid engine cars.

Not sure, i'm pretty sure they were smaller engines like the 318 and i know they used concrete blocks in the back to help even out the weight.

yea im not 100% positive about it. i saw a show and they were showing general lees. and it showed a mid engine general and said they used it for some of the jump scenes. but my memory isnt the best and this was like 4-5 months ago. also on a side note. its nice to see the old shows havent died like bad news bears and the dukes. but wha id like to see is them re do a movie for rockford files. rockford files was cool. he was always ramming people with his cars and callin em turkeys and stuff. and he didnt taKe no shit. he was always punchin people and he hid a gun in the cookie jar lol

Well i did some reasearch and about the TV show:

"Very little stunt footage was ever reused in "The Dukes of Hazzard." That means that every time you see the General make a jump - and come crashing down - the stunt crew went out and performed that jump. Of course, there isn't a car in the world that can drive away from a jump the likes of the ones the General performed. In fact, each jump practically destroyed the car, ripping the engine mounts, bending the chassis, and ruining the suspension. At first, the studio bought replacement cars from nearby used car lots (where the original was found). However, they quickly bought and crashed every 1969 Dodge Charger in the region. Eventually, a special studio shop was built that cranked out General Lees, along with the other various vehicles driven and crashed in the show. Over 150 General Lees were produced, along with 500 other cars, mostly police cars."

And about the Movie:

"In an interview with Cinema Confidential, Scott reports that all of the stunts were actually performed - there'll be no computer generated General Lee flying through the air. The stunt crew from the "Bourne Supremacy" worked on the Dukes film. After a few weeks of training, Scott also got to drive the General for a few scenes. Knoxville confirmed Scott's skill in another interview. "Seann was training like four hours a day with Bobby Ore and Seann's damn good now," he said. "Reverse 180s, drifting, he's really good and he gets to do a lot of the driving in the movie."

I got all this from howstuffworks.com

i dont know about you. but getting caught is never fun. ever. its funny though in my case. it was chris that made me cheat on my girlfriend, and then i wouldnt **** her so she got me busted. and turned my g/f against me so we broke up. then after we broke up chris was banging down my door trying to get my dick again. of course i had nothing to lose after that so i gave her what she wanted. :mrgreen: you aint had sex till youve had sex with a skank. they know how to work that shit
