5 Favorites #82: 5 Favorite Chase Scenes

Every week, we'll pose a new "five favorites" question. You just list your five favorites that fit in that category (preferably in preference order) and you're welcome to discuss and debate the selections and see just how much you do or do not have in common with others. If you want to take a look back at our past articles to comment or enjoy, here is a post set aside to track all of our articles.

Let's give praise to those exciting bits of cinematic creativity known as chase scenes. They can be on foot or by car or on any other type of vehicular conveyance.

  1. Bullitt – San Francisco chase
    The French Connection – Chasing the elevated train
    Raiders of the Lost Ark – Chasing the truck
    The Road Warrior – Escape in the semi
    The Bourne Ultimatum – NYC car chase

  2. No particular order:

    1. Outback chase in a tanker truck, The Road Warrior
    2. Throughout the city, The Adventures of Tintin
    3. Foot chase in Point Break
    4. Coal carts, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
    5. Freeway sequence, The Matrix Reloaded

  3. Bullitt and The French Connection for car chases, of course
    Speed and the original The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, though I’m not sure they qualify as chase scenes as nothing can catch the runaway bus and train
    The Bourne Utimatum for foot chases
    Honorable mention to all those Grade B westerns in which the bad guys chase the good guys and vice versa on horseback

  4. Bullitt
    The French Connection
    Ronin
    The Seven-ups
    Casino Royale (wanted to have at least one foot chase and at least one Bond movie, which always seemed to have a great chase sequence.)

  5. The chase scene at the beginning of Casino Royale is great! What parkour is supposed to be, from two different perspectives (physical and analytical).
