I have been attempting to build up a collection of the "car" movies I liked. Have managed to put together the following favourites on VCD/DVD and have watched them countless times:
  • The original Gone in 60 Seconds & the remake
  • The original Italian Job & the remake
  • Fast & The Furious
  • 2 Fast 2 Furious
  • The Transporter (Cant wait to see version 2)
  • Matrix II (yes just the chase applies to this subject but it was pretty good)
Have seen the following and loved them as well been searching for these movies to add to the collection for a while now:
  • Ronin
  • Bullit
  • Duel
  • Silver Dream Racer (A bike movie though)

Hi,

Actaully all of you have listed my favs but there's one which i saw and loved it. It's like Fast and furious and Dhoom.. (Dhoom has copied the bank thieving concept from this movie).. And the name is "Taxi" released in 1998.

It looked too good to be true but who cares ...it was awesome. I have seen that movie(just for that chase alone ) too many times to keep count but still love it.

Also added Days of Thunder to my favourite list (and to my collection) on Sunday. It had the righ amount of humour and a good dose of high revving engines to keep me happy.

Now am on the lookout for another movie I remember seeing but forgot till I did a Google Search for car chases : "Vanishing Point"

hey sjcherian, have you seen Rendevous, a 10 minute french film that is all about blasting through 1960's Paris in early morning in an italian sports car? It was full of rushing through signals, intersections, turning into 90 degree turns at crazy speeds and lots of close calss and tyre squealing. It had an overdubbed soundtrack from a racing ferrari, and is surely one of the most evocative movies I have seen.

Islero: Its a Ferrari 275 driven in early morning paris, there are no special effects here. If you see carefully, the guy has some close shaves. regarding the sound, i think it is more to do with the equipment then and the conversion to digital that makes it seem like it was dubbed. Great ***** out driving nevertheless.
See Climb Dance, its ari vatannen's drive up pikes peak...I think its better than Rendevous.

@Maverick5490 - I didnt want to go the science fiction route as there are way too many movies there that I like :-). I love the Back to the future series but felt it didnt fall into the "action" genre that most car movies fall into.

I saw Vanishing point on cable as well when I was in the USA. There was some channel that used to show "car" movies on late Saturday night. Hvant seen the movie since.
