GoPro: 2017 in Review

Another year has passed, and GoPro action cameras yet again helped to capture some of the year’s most epic, beautiful, entertaining, and dramatic sights. There’s no way a sub-3-minute video can sum it all up, but it’s still worth a watch – even if it is just a commercial.

Mountain Bearking

Mountain Bearking

Riding your bike on a downhill mountain path is dangerous enough all on its own – hence the helmets and pads these guys are wearing. But this ride down a course in Slovakia provided an added source of peril – a bear. Thankfully, the killer animal gave up the chase rather quickly.

The Dark Tower (Trailer)

The guys from Corridor have a little fun with shadowplay in this clip about a couple of graffiti artists who get more than they bargain for when they try to tag the wrong building. TL;DW: kids, don’t use spray paint.

American Assassin (Trailer)

Based on Vince Flynn’s secret agent novels about Mitch Rapp, who becomes a deadly secret agent to compensate for the fact that his name befits a stand-up comedian. Just kidding. Loved one dies, wants revenge, trains with Batman, walks away from explosions.

NERF John Wick

NERF John Wick

Corridor pokes fun at the action and gunplay from the John Wick saga, replacing his Heckler & Kochs and Glocks with NERF blasters, and bullets with foam darts. It’s a little slow at the start, but once the action and stunts gets going, it’s good fun.

Leningrad: Kolschik

(PG-13: Gore) Since we don’t speak Russian, we don’t understand what the song is about, but the sheer insanity of the events that play out make this one of the wildest music videos we’ve seen. The clip was directed by Ilya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry and The Stampede)

Rollerblading Mountain Bike Ramps

Rollerblading Mountain Bike Ramps

It takes a minute to get to the action in this clip of rollerblader Grigoriy Usenko tearing up some MTB slopestyle ramps in the woods outside of Krasnodar, Russia. But you’ll want to watch those first 60 seconds too, packed with cool motion time-lapse footage of the nearby city.
