Think you don't know Vic Armstrong? Wrong! You've seen his work in countless films. He's been stunt double for James Bond, Indiana Jones and Superman, and he's directed action scenes for 3 Bond movies, "Mission Impossible 3", "I Am Legend" and the upcoming "Thor", to name but a few. He's got a lot of amazing stories to tell, and they're all here in this, the movie memoir of the year.

“Not as good as it should be”

I struggled a little with this. It's interesting enough but not overly detailed. More about who he met than what he did. After awhile the name dropping gets a bit waring.
