A community forum recently voted a Jackie Chan’s stunt in the 1998 film Who Am I as the most dangerous ever shot. 

The movie written and directed by Jackie himself had a harebrained plot but stood out for the stunt which occurs in the climax which takes place on a Rotterdam skyscraper. 

Escaping from the baddies, Jackie Chan drops off an  important disk off the roof and knows his only chance at getting it back is sliding 21 stories down the side of the building. 

He never used body doubles and avoided props, including computer tricks, in his long action career.

It is said even Jackie Chan took two weeks to build his nerve for the action scene in Who Am I, notes Cracked

He finally pulled it off, rolling and tumbling down the building without any safety harness or camera tricks. 

While going down, he even stood up and tried to run on his feet for a while.
