As a movie, Assassin's Creed had its faults. But the live-action adaptation of the hit video game pretty much nailed it when it came to the iconic style of action and stunts.

We have an exclusive clip from the film's home release with a video that goes behind the scenes of the Leap of Faith — which was done with practical effects and a real-life jump by a gutsy stunt guy. The scene looks great on film, but actually seeing how they pulled off that free fall will make your stomach drop.

Assassin's Creed stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Charlotte Rampling and Michael K. Williams. The film is based on the massively successful video game series and taps Fassbender as a man who gets pulled into a twisty conspiracy centuries in the making.

The film is available now on digital and hits DVD and Blu-ray on March 21. Check out the featurette below.
