Agree?

I'd have ranked "Ronin" and "Vanishing Point" a little higher, and replaced "The Italian Job" with "The Bourne Supremacy." No comment on "The Fast and the Furious" being on the same list as "Bullitt."

Vanishing Point has got to be the worst movie ever made, and I say that having seen Battlefield Earth, Night of the Lepus and The Postman. There has never been a movie that makes less sense.

What are you talking about The Fast and the Furious owns all cause they had Nawws none of the other movies had that and all the cars were waay better looking and they could also warp time when they hit the button on the wheel plus all those stickers. (OMG did I say that out loud) uhhhhh... Ricers suck.


Any way I like Bad Boys 2 there is some good chases in that movie.

What you guys have all forgotten or don't know and they don't tell you are the series of movies made by Toby Halicki in the 70's that superseded all that Gone in 60seconds crap. Sorry, the Nicholas Cage movie was a sad remake of the ORIGINAL Gone in 60 Seconds. Follow Halicki's "Gone" with his "Junkman" a movie with more incredible chase scenes. Don't bother with the third movie in the series as its essentially a remake of his "Gone". Halicki died in his 4th attempt at movies, but his widow recently rereleased his original "Gone" and its been restored. Worth seeing.
Also try the original Italian Job with Michael Caine. Funny movie! Great Italian street scenes with the Mini Coopers racing through Rome. Also, don't miss the opening where the Mafia destroys the Lamborghini Miura and then later MIchaels Caine's beautiful XKE!
Ronin was awesome. FnF1/2 are horrible.

Agreed. The best car chase scenes are the ones that are at least somewhat believable. If you have to use CG or a model or something, don't bother. That idiotic jump in 60 seconds ruined the whole thing, and that's why Bullitt will always be the king of car chase movies. They actually performed the jumps they showed without totalling a car after every jump, so it made the scene believable. That's also why Ronin is pretty good.

Gone in 60 Seconds was okay, but they focused way too much on the Mercedes and the Mustang. Yes, nice, but not all that impressive. I personally wanted to see more than the 3-second cameo that the Jaguar XJ220 made.

I thought someone would have brought up the car chase scene in "The Rock"

Nicholas Cage had a badazz chase scene in some exotic car.

Was'nt it one of those Fiero/Ferrari kits? When it gets smashed you can tell, but its just a prop. anyway it's a good chase scene.


What about the Blues Brothers (have'nt seen that movie in along time) IIRC. there was a pretty good chase scene in that one. Also the movie The Chase.

I think it's the kind of movie that's supposed to be profound if you're on acid or something, but if you're sane it's just stupid. The funny thing is that Mopar guys like it just because of the "It takes a Mopar to catch a Mopar" line.
