Re: Best Movie Chase Scene?

The original Gone in 60 Seconds was amazing because the damage to the car is accumulated throughout the chase (making pretty much all modern chase scenes irrelevant to this discussion), and in many cases there are either no skid marks, or only one set, visible on the final take (making all "made for TV" car chases irrelevant).

Bullitt gets far more attention because it was a bigger movie and had a huge budget. GI60S was self funded and had a tiny budget. Watch the number of cars destroyed in it (and not as gratuitously as that sounds) and marvel at the expense / balls of the film's producer.

However, neither of them rates as high as the original Italian Job. That takes all of the cake. The scene where they jump the three cars from the roof of one 5 story building to another was shot only once (and the film director FORGOT to arrange for a crane shot, which would have made it more clear just how death defying that stunt really was) because the stunt drivers and the film maker simply didn't dare risk doing it a second time. That alone is the most death defying car stunt probably ever filmed. Add to it the race through the sewer, through the river, onto the roof of the Turin soccer stadium, through the shopping plaza (which was the inspiration for the Blues Brother's "man this malls got everything" scene) and on and on, plus the amazing ending to that movie makes it my winner. Also, minis are awesome.

Bulliet- I think I spelled it like the bourbon...
Those stunt drivers and that camera work was outstanding. That is skill when you can keep that 70s American iron glue to the road as well as is depicted. I wonder how many vehicles and re-takes were needed to complete the compiled scene.
2X on Bullitt, but in reality all suggested are good too.

The reason why we retain memories is because we are not caught in a time loop. The reason why we are not caught in a time loop is because it is not possible to go backwards in time only forward!

The Blues Brothers. That must be a record for the most cars crashed.

Correct answer (unless you're talking about the new one)! There may be "better" ones (Bullit, French Connection, Vanishing Point…Ronin etc... *rolls eyes* jk), but nothing else matters. End thread. Haha

Mad Max/The Road Warrior > everything else
He was talking about the new one. Where they drive one direction for half the movie, then drive back the other half.

BTW, I am the Nightrider!

No continuity.

Chase starts out in Bernal Heights, then the Mission. Okay there, makes sense.

Then to Russian Hill.

Back south to Potrero Hill.

Back up to Russian Hill. (side note: I lived for a time at Green and Taylor, where the famous jumping scene was)

Out to the Marina, which makes some sense.

Then waaaaay down to the Excelsior / Vis Valley.

Finally into Daly City and crashing into gas station in Brisbane.

Here is a map.

Also, the magic green VW bug makes 4 separate appearances.
