The Top Ten

1
Bullitt
The original car chase right here. Great cars, great camera angles. Still better than car chases today!

They keep reusing the soundtrack from this to try and improve all the wanna be car chases in lesser films. It's pretty funny to hear Steve's double clutching when the hero is driving an automatic Chevy.

The coolest cars and the coolest camera angles

2Matrix Reloaded
The most spectacular car chase scene in movie history, with never seen images

MatrixGuy


3Ronin
The best realistic chase scene. Feels like you are right
In the action. Even us Yanks like it. If French were so great it would be La Google. "Oui?"
La Peripherique... need one say more, except here they do it the wrong way round!
(And for all you stupid Yanks, look it up on Google! )
Probably the most realistic car chase scene ever.

4The Fast and the Furious

holy crap, that film, was so freakin amazing. tuned cars, lots of explosions, awesome music, it was intense. i've never seen better. #1 all the way


5The Blues Brothers
Physics? What the heck is physics? Everything in that last car chase was ridiculously excessive and illogical, and because of that, it is hands down the best one I've ever seen. I could not stop laughing! I had to watch the whole thing over and over again. Just fantastic!
You can't compare anything to being chased down by a country band, American Nazis, the police, the military, and tons of other groups of people.
that scene through the mall is a classic

6The Bourne Identity
Spectacular and realistic car chase scene, the best I've seen out of any movie, including Matrix, Ronin, Italian Job, etc.
Not over the top (special effects such as The Matrix) and believable.

7Transporter

8Gone in 60 Seconds
