I saw the movie "Death Sentence" a couple of nights ago. A not so cookie cutter revenge story... staring Kevin Bacon.


It's not a steadicam shot, so it would be more in the stile of "Children Of Men".

One segment fairly at the beginning, Kevin gets chased by the bad guys, starting on the street turning into full blast running, Steadicam with the Polaris or Mule, handheld on a rickshaw... etc.

Eventually they chase him into a parking garage and from then on it's all one shot (ruffly 5 min, at first I didn't realize until the camera went trough some holes and out of the garage and on a different level and so on), as he runs up the levels the handheld camera (Arri 235 in a cage) gets handed off (7 operators, 2 cranes, multiple 1st AC's) switches between Kevin and his pursuers and ends up on a birds eye view of the garage.

If nothing else it's worth a look...
