Not for the faint of heart, this car chase scene is full of bodies flying and outdated special effects. I feel creeped out just thinking of it.
That concludes our week of car chase scenes! I hope you enjoyed it. Keep the speed down out there!
Steve McQueen. Leather driving gloves. Creepy instrumental music. Conveniently empty streets in San Francisco with strategically placed Trolleys filled with innocent tourists. Smoke pouring from squealing tires during burnouts. The sound of a wide open throttle. All ingredients in one of the best car chase scenes ever recorded.
Cast of characters: Eleanor – the classic 1967 GT500 Mustang. Oh so sexy and the inspiration (via the original movie) behind so many of us giving our lovely cars a name. Memphis – played by Nicolas Cage, the expert of smoldering looks from behind the car windshield glare. Sara – played by Angelina Jolie. And some amazingly creative yet disturbing hairstyles. And an assortment of other bad characters. But the chase scenes are fantastic.
Warning: One bad word is used early (at :08 seconds). The rest is family friendly!
Jason Bourne. Paris. And the famous last words, “Uh, we’ve got a bump coming up.” My blood pressure skyrockets when I hear the car siren and Prodigy kick in. Does yours?
After watching this I had to send it to my best friend’s husband. He drives just like Jason Bourne through Chicago.
Happy Monday everyone! We hope you survived the weekend without any car mishaps. This week on the Carhelp Blog we’ll be posting our favorite car chase scenes from movies. First up, the Mini Cooper chase scene from the Italian Job.
Just to be clear, we’re not advocating that you form a burglary gang or drive this way! But if you do end up with a few dings in your car as a result of a not so high speed car incident, bring it in to one of our fantastic mechanics. We’ll get you fixed and out the door as soon as we can.
And a bonus video, the boat chase scene at the end of the movie.
