Re: Best Movie Chase Scene?

It is interesting that so many modern, CGI infused and "MTV quick cut" car chases from recent movies are being proposed as being in the same class as the '60s and '70s classics which were all "in camera".

To get anything like that today it is necessary to find a director who would go to anywhere near the same effort as those old movies had to go to. Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof is maybe the only one.

If you are a fan of truly classic car chase film (Bullitt, French Connection, Italian Job, Gone in 60 Sec, etc.), then you absolutely must see Death Proof. The story isn't meant to be much (it is, after all, an homage to bad '70s drive in movies), but he spared nothing in the car chase department and filmed everything in real time, with long takes (no quick cuts to "fix" anything, or hype the action), and his star is the awesome Zoe Bell, who, of course, did all of her own stunts (and did all of Uma Thurman's stunts in Kill Bill, and was Lucy Lawless's stunt double for Xena!).

Oh, and the car chase in it is over 20 minutes long.

Sorry if some one already posted this. but hands down... "TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA" it is a mid 80's cop drama action flick with Willem Dafoe and William Petersen. SOO SOO GOOD.
