    @red-ruddy@supermanvenom -- My exact thought. But, it does show how bad-ass this movie may be. It just gives the action-scenes 'that' much edge. R.I.P.

    Getting blown up happens too fast to actually feel anything, you are alive one moment and dead the next... Unless you die later from the wounds.

    For some reason these film shoots in eastern europe have been having a few accidents now and again, much more than studio based stunts. It's been happening over the past few years, but never with a fatality. Too bad.

    I'm seriously not trying to be funny so don't put this in the wrong context
    "passing away" is when you die like on a hospital bed or something
    when you get blown up its called "dead"
    getting blown up is a horrible painful death
