Reading B Car Chase Movies
The invention of the car
didnt just bring about a revolution in personal
transport. It brought us The Car Chase, which
challenges the traffic regulations, the laws of
physics and good old fashioned common sense.
According to a recent survey conducted among club
members, here are the top three car chase movies
in history.
21
Reading B Car Chase Movies


Ronin (1998) Ronin has one of the
most admired movie car chases of the modern era.
It manages to incorporate genuinely high speeds
by camera trick, and it is the envy of every
British road user. Employing Formula One pilots
as stunt drivers, Frankenheimer applies the Audi
S8, BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz 6.9 to battle one
another on narrow city streets, on roads cut
along the French Riviera coast, through tunnels
and driving against traffic on crowded highways.
Its one thing to wreck cars in a movie, its
something else altogether to have them driven as
brilliantly as they are in Ronin.
22
Reading B Car Chase Movies

Bullitt (1968) Undeniably the
ultimate car chase. It had an good choice of
location, which allowed the stunt performers to
do better in the movie. Besides, it had Steve
McQueen, who quite obviously drove the car in
even the most dangerous shots. The scene benefits
hugely from star Steve McQueens natural ability
behind the wheel What makes it a cinematic
landmark is its sense of realism and quality of
its driving.
23
Reading B Car Chase Movies
Gone In 60 Seconds (1974)
This is not the other Angelina Jolie movie youre
thinking of, its a classic. The story is
disjointed and random, the dialog could have been
written by a 4-year-old. But it does feature a
40-minute chase, almost 100 cars were wrecked.
Its the sort of film we all dream of when we
were young. Sadly, Halicki, the filmmaker, was
killed in 1989 while filming a stunt.
What do you think of the relationship between
human-beings and the mechanical beast that we
live with everyday? Do tell us your thoughts at
