  Amazing Bond stunt wins top award
Updated 17 November 2002, 16.20
This Bond stunt set a new world record
A breathtaking bungee jump in the Bond film GoldenEye has been voted the best movie stunt ever.

The film starts with James Bond jumping off a 750 foot dam attached to a bungee cord.

It was such a massive jump that it set a new world record for bungee jumping from a fixed place.

High speed

Pierce Brosnan
Bond is played by Pierce Brosnan in GoldenEye, but it was stuntman Wayne Michaels who actually did the incredible jump.

"It's pushing the limits of what can physically be done," Wayne said. "The body is travelling at such a high rate of speed that it puts a great deal of strain on you."

But GoldenEye wasn't the only Bond film to be named in the poll. The Man With The Golden Gun, The World Is Not Enough and The Spy Who Loved Me were also in the top 10.

So was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, which came in at number six with the scene where Indie rides up a bank on horseback and then leaps onto a moving tank.

The top film stunts were voted for by the public in a poll for Sky Movies.

The top 10 are:

1. GoldenEye
2. Stagecoach
3. Ben-Hur
4. The Man With The Golden Gun
5. The World Is Not Enough
6. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
7. The Spy Who Loved Me
8. Steamboat Bill Jr
9. Hooper
10. The Man Who Would Be King
