What is the martial art used in Casino Royale and Bourne Ultimatum to propel characters off walls and into buildings?

The type of fighting used was "kali" also know as Filipino Martial Arts. This is especially true for Bourne but was used to a point in Casino Royale.Kali/FMA is very old (much older than most Asian martial arts) and is in fact not a martial art, but is instead a fighting system. Martial arts incorporate aspects into them that serve no specific purpose when pertaining to a fight. Everything is used for a fight in Kali. It is also the only martial art that starts trainees off with a weapon at first and then you work to open hand. All others start open handed and work towards a weapon. FMA does this because it is easier to learn how to improvise and fight with an open hand after one has leaned to use a weapon, than to fight with a weapon if one has not had any training for it. The weapon is an extension of your body. Lastly, FMA came into ist final form with the spanish invasion of the filipines, but has in fact been around since around the year 200 A.D. and has only changed and become more lethal (now incorporating the use of knives and swords as well as sticks and the body).

As for the running scene, the type used was not parkour but was actually called "Free Running." It was developed by Sébastien Foucan and incorporates aspects of Parkour. The difference is that parkour is meant to get a person from one area to the next, as efficient as possible. Free Running is instead meant to get a person from one area to the next in the most aesthetically pleasing way. That is why you see things such as "vaults" used in CR and in Bourne Ultimatum. Wikipedia either one and you will see the difference.

How many movies bourne identity?

The Book The Bourne Identity, by Robert Ludlam, 1980 is a big book, full of interesting plots and events, only a few of which were portrayed in the 2002 film The Bourne Identity, but which was only loosely based on the novel. However, prior to that Hollywood film, in 1988, there was a t.v. film entitled The Bourne Identity, and it used much of the original book's storyline and plots. This film was four hours long and shown over two nights, two hours each night. It was also made available on video and DVD. In 1986 Ludlam wrote The Bourne Supremacy, and a film of that name was released in 2004, being a sequel to the first film, but not based on the book. In 1990 Ludlam wrote The Bourne Ultimatum. In 2007 a third Jason Bourne movie was released, with that name, but this film was also not based on Ludlam's book. Ludlam has not written any other Bourne novels, but another writer, Eric Van Lustbader, has written three Bourne books: The Bourne Legacy 2004, The Bourne Betrayal 2007, The Bourne Sanction 2008. So there have been TWO 'The Bourne Identity' films, one being a tv/video/dvd version in 1988, and the other as a general release cinema film in 2002. Two Jason Bourne sequels have also been made, as listed above. For more information see 'Related Links' below
