Pegman – Mayhem in Russia

Some high octane excitement this week!

The sound of sirens came closer. Around the corner sped a sports car, followed by a host of police cars. One of the pursuit overshot, smashing into a wall.

The sports car accelerated, spewing a thick, dark substance. The closest of the police cars skidded, flying into the river. The sports car spun to a halt, facing the remaining pursuit and accelerated in a deadly game of “chicken”. Two police cars smashed into a shop, another joined its friend in the river. The sports car vaulted the railing and shot across the water, executed twelve spins, bounced off a boat, flipped end over end and sped away.

Two old men watched the scene.

“That’ll be James Bond.”

“No, Alexei. Too flashy, yes? And not an Aston Martin. It’ll be that Jason Bourne.”

Alexei nodded. “Or Ethan Hunt, maybe. Just once I wish these foreign asshole spies trash their own city.”

    That is rich! I could see the whole thing–it was so cinematic. And the ending made me grin. Did all of those characters film there?

      Probably not, but they always seem to be in Russia, Morocco or Africa at some point 🙂 I’m glad you liked it!

    But at least some locals got extra role, right? That’s gotta be worth something.

      “Run-over pedestrian number three.” “Knuckle-duster thug.” A dream come true!
      I think one of them even got on the film crew. “Second unit assistant best boy dolly grip.”

    Alas, nobody ever cares for the unseen background characters who are left to deal with the collateral damage of action movies…. if they even managed to survive the thrilling chase scene.

      Unfortunately most of the clean-up crew was watching the action from inside that smashed-in shop…

    LOL My money is on Jason Bourne. I’ve just watched the latest Bourne movie (made 15 years after the first one) The behind the scenes info on the chases in different countries are brilliant.

      Yeah, I reckon it’s him too. I reckon he could flip cars with the best of them 🙂

    Nicely done! Ali. 🙂 My bet would be on Jason Bourne. He is good at chasing and being chased after. With your description only he, in my mind, is capable of such an action. 🙂

      Yes, Mr Bourne is pretty good with the cars. The other two seem to rely on too much tech these days, especially Ethan Hunt 🙂
