The scene in a movie where the characters race down a hill is not limited to any particular genre. It happens in crime capers, sports films, action movies, and can even show up in a comedy. The purpose is to get the audience’s adrenaline going, or at least a bit of a thrill. We can put ourselves in the participants’ place, and know that if it were us, we’d be sorely injured in no time. Get that bit of a thrill without watching an entire movie by checking out the downhill clips from five movies.
