This movie by steven speilberg called 'Duel'. Was shown on star movies ages ago. Chase between a truck and some american car. The whole movie is a chase scene. Nail biting action.
The opening sequence of cannonball run with the countach and the pontiac police car. Makes your love for all cars italian stronger.
Ronin ofcourse. Nothing like seeing huge sedans chasing one another in narrow city streets.
Yup powerslave...french connection has one of those all time great car chases.

Bullit
Italian Job (69 & 03)
Gone in 60 Seconds
Ronin
CannonBall Run (1 & 2)
Matrix : Reloaded (I know it doesnt qualify, coz most of it is CG.. but I think it was full of adranaline..)
M:I-2 ummm, except for that rolling (going round round part, it was good)..

And yes' *many "Double O' Seven" movies..*

p.s. - And yes S350, I'm back!

Hi there, here for one i differ,
for me, the best car chase scenes are from the french movies TAXI and its sequel TAXI 2! a peugeot 206(maybe) flying(literally) around marsielle!! being chased (or rather raced) by mercs in the first part and by lancers in the second! great drives!! and great fun too!
And Shravan, i think it was a dodge charger v/s the supra in that drag sequence in fast and furious, do correct me if i'm wrong!
And of course, the movie that started it all: MADMAX::

OMG! That Sucks .. Now its my turn for Signature change then ae'?

Anyway, to the topic.. How about Bourne Identity? The MiniCooper scene was smooth.. wasnt it..

p.s. - about MI2 chick, not really my type.. I thought Mr. Hunt deserved a better girl than Miss Hall..

Isnt it funny how the first big 1/4 mile race in "The Fast and the Furious" takes all of two minutes!! Those cars sure must be badly tuned::

I love the movie though.

Addy . The Lambo in the chase in Joshua Tree was a Countach not a Diablo. Awesome chase that though. The Canon Bal Intro chse rocks too. Countach against the Trans Am police car. That Countach engine note is unforgettable....

Cheers
