Can that whip he uses in real life really tie around trees and you're able to swing and stuff in real life? Does it really wrap around stuff and holds on?

Or is it CG?

Real.

Yeah I just read about it. Apparently though it ruins the whip over time to swing on it. They supplied over 30 DM (David Morgan) 10ft bullwhips for this Crystal Skull movie.

I also heard, but cannot confirm, that David Morgan put a steel cable in the whips where indy did the swinging in the earlier movies Indy 1, 2 and 3.

But you don't need the cable, but for safety precautions they made those whips for those scenes with a steel cable inserted.

He got his way.

Harrison Ford has threatened to quit the new Indiana Jones movie, unless he gets to use a real whip.

The 64-year-old actor, who plays the daredevil archaeologist, was told the weapon would have to be computer generated because of new film safety rules.

Harrison branded the rule "ridiculous" and said he would pull out of the film if he couldn't wield his whip.

A source said: "The idea was to take away the risk element the whip carries.

"Safety laws have changed since the last film and movie makers have to be much more careful. Now they use computer graphics for any dangerous stuff."
