What parkour? I only see a guy chasing another through a bunch of buildings while being too stupid to use his gun from the get-go.

Besides, why do you actually post this here?

do you idiots even know what parkour means?
i didn't say free-running.

Yes technically there's a distinction. Still I'm not sure a chase scene could count as parkour since he was just trying to get the hell out of there and it was quite hectic.

I'm either idiotic or you need to check what parkour really means...

Parkour is an urban discipline and the people who pratice it follow a specific moral conduct. It's based in simple but effective ways of transpassing an obstacle, using only the human body to achieve it.

My friend, what you've shown here is not Parkour... It is simply a chase.
There are chases in certain movies which use movements/strategies normally applied by parkour practitioners, but this is clearly not it.

He vault's one fence and falls from a 10 foot drop. This isn't parkour as he isn't moving in the most efficient way possible. Are you sure you know what parkour means?

I have a feeling District 13 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTyWfbvX0xQ) should have been mentioned already.
