These high-octane flicks certainly aren’t what you’d call cerebral, but they boast the best car chases in film history.
1968’s Bullitt makes just about everyone’s list of great car chases.
This titular cop was destined to be actor Steve McQueen’s most iconic role, and the heart-stopping chase through the busy streets of San Francisco remains one of the most amazing pieces of vehicular choreography ever captured on film.
2. Smokey and the Bandit
This is the film that made the Pontiac TransAm famous and influenced a generation of drivers worldwide.
Who could forget those classic chases in the iconic TransAm and the fun of watching Burt Reynolds outrun the clueless cops?
3. Mad Max
This frightening yet fun look at a dystopian future has some of the most amazing car chases and explosions you’ll find on Blu-Ray.
It’s also notable for the fact that it features a very young Mel Gibson, who has only 16 lines of dialogue throughout the entire movie, including (twice!), “I only came for the gasoline.”
