To me, you, anyone.

I'll be specific though, I want car chases, and I mean CAR chases, not fancy computer graphics.

I've already watched Gone in 60 Seconds, The Blues Brothers, and Bullitt in the last couple days, gimme some more. Obviously the movie doesn't have to focus entirely on cars, but it should have at least have one really good chase.

I heard The Seven Ups was pretty good.



I'll recommend that you watch Machete, it is just effing brilliant.

If I remember correctly, Inception had a car chase in it. One of my favorite movies!

Watch Ronin with Robert DeNiro and Jean Reno, directed by the late John Frankenheimer. You will love that movie and its car-chases. :D

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of those movies I always recommend, so there, watch it. I like The Truman Show too. The Butterfly Effect is my favorite movie, you either love it or hate it, mostly hate it, but it's worth a shot.

Yes! Never not this!

Bourne films are always good for car chases as well, un-surprisingly its best to start at the begining (also the best in my opinion.)

Matrix Reloaded? Not a great film but good car chase sequence, in fact the freeway scenes are the best parts of the film. That and the Smith fights.

Dirty Harry: Magnum Force, best car/motorbike scenes in this one.

Public Enemies, great film, great car chase, great performances, great action, great score, great shots. But if you're gonna watch Public Enemies then you might as well watch Heat, same director but the film is even better in everyway. DeNiro vs. Pacino is simply epic, granted there aren't many real car chases but you should watch it anyway. Best action film ever in my opinion.

The original Italian Job!

Full Throttle 2: Legend of Speed. The intro is virtually a copy of Ridge Racer Type 4 lol.

The Transporter series I liked.

Also Jackie Chan's Armour of God had an awesome car chase scene (the days when Jackie did all those crazy stunts for real).

A.F.S. 1984

I feel so lame for recommending this, but have you ever seen Smokey and the Bandit? Lots of funny chases in there. It's a little older, but some things don't really lose much of their spark with age. ;)

Arc_The_Lad
02-22-2011, 11:03 AM
I've seen lots of the movies mentioned here, I just wanted to see if anyone could mention some new ones, which there has.

Of COURSE I've seen smokey and the bandit, I own it.


Also, if you haven't seen Dragons Forever, do so, great fight scenes. I don't know if it was localized though, it's an older Jackie Chan film.

Oh, I love that one!

Hmm, here's an apparently obscure movie I love: Delusion (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101704/). I don't remember if they got around to any car chases in the movie, but it was good.

It was released in an updated form here a few years ago, in a few theatres.

The Jet was great in that, but I think his fight with Chan in Wheels on Meals just can't be beat.

...if I could go back in time and stop Grease from ever happening I would, even if it caused world destruction.

Yes I hate it, THAT much.

If any of you haven't seen the old British movie Horror Hospital, do so, it's so bad it's great. So much fake blood, so much unnecessary nudity, I LOVE IT.
