The Top Ten

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
[Newest]The best of the best car chase.

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


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.


8Gone in 60 Seconds
It's not just about the chase its about the car and come on who doesn't like that mustang
What a great scene! Nick cage was so convincing, and it really is becoming a classic.
he does hiw OWN stunts people. That make all the difference


9The French Connection
How THIS MOVIE didn't make the top ten list tells me that WAY too many kids are voting on this website......

10The Italian Job (2003)
Nothing compared to the original... No CGI in sight! The original also had the scene with the car being pushed off the cliff
Since this movie, the mini cooper became my dream car


of course

but remember thecrash in blues brothers 2000
simply the greatest


The Contenders

11Death Proof
Uh... no CGI, and Zoe Bell trying to stay on the hood of the car at speeds in excess of 100 mph... do me a favor, watch it and then come back and vote.

12Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
The best, most destructive car/truck/everything chase scene of all time.

13The Bourne Supremacy
With out a doubt the best car chase ever, it has my head wrecked trying to find the song to it
The best car chase of all time with the greatest ending ever.
One of the best car chases thats actually realistic.

14Bad Boys II

15Smokey and the Bandit
To not make this in the top spot is a crime. The whole movie is a car chase!


16Vanishing Point
Classic. Amazing. Sad that this isn't on the top 10.
Next to Bullit the most badass car in the history of chases.


The best, hands down!

17Quantum of Solace
The car chase at the beginning in super fantastic! This should be in the top tens.
Why is it not on top 10

18The Dark Knight
Car chases don't come better than this. At all.

19Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny

20To Live and Die in L.A.
Car chase on a highway, where the cars are moving AGAINST the flow of traffic.
Carchase in the river! Not only a great charchase, a film out of the ordinary in more than one sense!
