Straight up - it's good.
I can't look at a fastback w/o thinking of Steve McQueen.
Peace - Deeve
There’s also a scene of Frank Bullitt going to the grocery store and getting dinners for the week......to the freezer section and grabs one TV dinner and then quickly stacks them up one by one and tucks them under his arm. Classic bachelor stuff!!!
An old colleague of mine just recut this
Top notch chase scenes
"Steve McQueen did it all."
'Eventually, it was McQueen's inability to pull off the stunts that forced Lofton to replace him with Bud Ekins, McQueen's longtime friend who performed the famous motorcycle jump in "The Great Escape."'
https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/2020/history/porsche-steve-mcqueen-christophorus-395-21466.htmlSteve McQueen did most all of his own stunts, certain ones the studio and his insurance would not allow. Nothing to do with whether he was capable or not. He was capable, actually raced dirt bikes under a fake name (Harvey Mushman) to stay under the radar.
I felt the same way. It was like, you could sense the badassery of running the ass off a 440 Challenger but the camera work just didn’t quite catch it.
I think my next-in-line badass car chase action was the movie “Ronin,” and was all Euro stuff...Citroen XM, 6.9L Mercedes tire smoking, BMW M5 wrong-way driving and Audi S8 nighttime cobblestone street drifting. It makes the supercar chase in “Spectre” look pretty stupid.
What he said...
'Nothing to do with whether he was capable or not.'
Except for nearly killing the cameraman at (in the OP video clip) 4:07, after which Ekins took over.
And I'm not sure if you've noticed, but dirt bikes and cars aren't the same.
Driver in Charger was a professional stunt driver.
Death Proof with Kurt Russell is a pretty good showing for modern times.
”Bullitt” is cool. But yeah, the chase in “Ronin” is a real nail biter. Frantic, beautifully filmed, and realistic.
Other honorable mentions:
“Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry”
“The Italian Job” (1969)
“It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World”
They sure passed that green Beetle a number of times in a row
Man, that Charger took that 90 degree right onto Mansell at a high rate of speed. Maybe they sped up the film but dang that was fast.
Never knew my high school history professor could handle a car like that!
Falling down......everytime I see a burger advert on TV I get that same feeling as he does in the film
The geography those cars cover in/around SF is impossible. Still, good movie & great scene.
Definitely not as good as the french connection one.
I've had the experience ... buying a haMburger. (Without the gun).
You beat me to it on Ronin and The italian Job - The Ronin one in particular is epic.
