      Hmm, sorry. I'm not really into car chases. I'm more of a hand-to-hand combat kind of person.

        of course its the best, look who was driving the actual car for Christ sakes..!!!

        ...mind you, in those uneconomical times for cars, wonder how many fuel stops both of them made during the chase..??!!

            I nominate the entire film - "Duel" with Dennis Weaver. One of Spielberg's first directorial efforts, IIRC.

              "The Road Warrior" starts out with an awesome car chase scene and then throughout the entire movie has awesome car chase scenes, especially the ending.

                I've got to nominate the "against the flow of traffic" chase from Ronin.

                  Yep I was thinking about these too.

                    Loftin, who performed car stunts for Bullitt, was also involved with the chase in Against All Odds. It was a bad ass race along LA's Sunset Blvd between a Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole and a Porsche 911SC.

                    Sorry...this is not a car chase, it's a car race.

                      I thought there were some very good chase scenes in Drive.
