Ronin, Gone in 60 Seconds, Italian Job.

Another one is a dubbed movie The PayDay Clown. They showed it on Star movies somedays back. Phaeton being chased by around 20-25 cop cars that finally get blown away was the best part of the movie.

Well, here goes-

Vanishin Point-
One of the very best car movies of all time. Very hard to get cult classic.
Drives all across the states
Here's the clincher, The movie stars Barry Newman, an actual racing car driver who then went to the movies, so the driving in this movie is superb
(Also saw it a long time ago)

Breaking R-tech's rules, just to add Ronin in, have to, simply as its some of the best driving one can ever hope to see.

Days of Thunder- prteyy real stuff they did there, even tho i'm not a nascar fan

Taxi has some good stuff in it, although its not a quintessential racing flick.

I didnt think much too much of Fast & Furious
But the Sequel sucked BIG time. Most of it wa simulted Cg crap.

Revvhead, is Vanishing Point the one in which he drives across America to meet his dying wife?

EDIT: Yeah it is...or something like that. Anyway, it's what Audioslave's video is based on.

Ronin
Italian Job (the first one)
Vanishing Point (Challenger)
Bullit (Mustang) is to the Mustang what the italian job is to the Mini Cooper
The fast And The Furious
The Transporter. How come no one mentioned it? Awesome chase in a BMW 735Il... very Ronin like.
The spy Who Loved Me (Lotus Espirit Turbo)
Taxi or Taxi Driver, tthe one with Ryan O Neal where he tottals a 67, 111 series mercedes 300 sel in a basement (which Feroz Khan lifted and reproduced in Qurbani)
Even the 80s tele serial The A team had some good chases (GMC Van)
and some earlier Bond films but they got boring in the later movies
all these movies had cult car chases.

Agree with those who said Ronin..
perhaps or it is the BEST car chase scene I have ever seen in a movie...
Trinity on a Ducati 996 in Matrix 2 was great too :-)
