"The most complicated scene was where Luke goes into a bank, robs it, leaves the bank, escapes on his motorcycle, and drives at tremendously fast speeds through a busy intersection amidst lots of other cars while being pursued by a cop. All of this happens in a single take… so Ryan had to become very proficient on the bike.
"He trained with Rick Miller, one of the great Hollywood stunt men, six hours a day for two months. His prowess took our breath away. In order to get that scene completed, Ryan did 22 takes. Every time, he almost got it… but I will never forget the feeling in my stomach… I bite my shirt when I get nervous and by the end of the day, I had just eaten my shirt because I thought he was gonna crash every time.” - Derek Cianfrance on Ryan’s bike skills
