Best car chase scenes

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - COVER STORY -

The Raid 2: Beran­dal (2014) Hand to hand mar­tial arts in­side the car, and break­ing up a cav­al­cade of es­cort­ing ve­hi­cles out­side. Mind the build­ing. Too late. Death Proof (2007) It’s no­body’s favourite Tarantino flick, but it does con­tain old-school, death-de­fy­ing stunt work from Zoë Bell, who gamely slides around the bon­net amid many bangs and crashes. Bullitt (1968) Steve McQueen hur­tles through San Fran­cisco in a pimped Ford Mus­tang. Rub­ber screeches. Gears shift. History is made. The French Con­nec­tion (1971) Gene Hack­man (left) thun­ders through crowded NYC streets in a scene that was shot with no traf­fic con­trol. Prob­a­bly not as fun for those un­sus­pect­ing pedes­tri­ans and mo­torists as it is for view­ers.
