Stunt choreography is a business that really needs to be done properly. A failure in any one area has the potential to not just ruin the stunt and waste a film or TV show's budget, but could lead to a member of the cast or crew getting seriously hurt (or even killed).

We won't spoil what happens in this particular video, which looks like it's from a set somewhere in China (we hear Mandarin at the end, but clear, unaccented English in the beginning), buy it's safe to say that this particular stunt has gone very, very wrong. It's difficult to know if the failing was with the stunt driver or in the planning, but it seems clear that this video wasn't staged – something really did go wrong here, judging by the chaos following the stunt.

It's unclear if anyone was injured inside the car, although it seems that there were no injured bystanders. Take a look and let us know what you think.

      It turns out that the crash was not part of the film stunt at all, it was just a young Asian woman trying to parallel park.

      They scripted to hit the ramp at 50 kph but they hit it at 50 mph.

      It's definitely Mandarin. Also, that looks like a Chrysler 300?

        It's a mixture of English, Cantonese, and Mandarin. Some of the people on the set were clearly speaking English, there were other people asking if there were people (presumably hurt), and then the person doing the filming was talking in Mandarin.

      I wish they learnt how to shoot car chases properly. (We can see glimpses of that each week from several YouTube car-related channels. And those guys have fractions of budgets compared to Hollywood.) These car stunts and explosions don't impress anyone anyways.

      Was this meant to be shot in 3D?

      Do it in China so you don't have to waste money on safety crews.

      I think they were short on extras so they decided to use the crew

      Allowing crew to stand in the direction the car was planned to go was just plain stupid. Just good luck nobody was killed.
