"Skyfall" Train Fight Recreated In "GTAV" (Video)

Ever a wellspring of creativity, a group of GTAV players have recreated Skyfall's absolutely brilliant opening train fight sequence in-game. Taking advantage of the open-world playground of Los Santos, this is a pretty impressive recreation, given the limitations.

Obviously having to improvise on the exact blocking of 007's fistfighting and stuntwork (no standing up and adjusting cufflinks here), the video still manages to pull off the overall sense of the scene and action beats, not to mention the jump cutting between the train and Naomi Harris' sniper shot. All in all, it's a commendable job, especially considering that someone actually had to shoot 007 from a moving train in real time. It doesn't make the wait for the next film any easier, though.
