post #16 of 56
Driven- an awful Sly Stallone movie otherwise, but a high-speed F1 chase through downtown Chicago is incredible to watch on DVD with a good sub.

I nominate Bullitt (1968) with Steve McQueen.

over rated for this reason:you can see the same fucking Beetle like 4 times,too much splicing and editing,good yes but very short scene made to look much longer.
the winner would be Ronin,driven by the chick from Californication no less

Weird - I always thought the FC car chase was shot in Chicago under the train line there. Every time I'm there, I tell people about it - have I been disseminating BS ? (I mean, in this specific case)

Yes, it was Brooklyn, under what is now the D train.

Cool. No idea where that idea that it was in Chicago came from.

Ronin for me. That 4-wheel drift of the Audi at night in the beginning is . Also, Grand Prix since a race is technically a car chase.

People tend to associate elevated trains with Chicago, since all the Manhattan els (except Metro North above 96th) were torn down long ago. But they are still out there in the outer boroughs.

One of the Spider Man movies has an el scene that was filmed in Chicago, even though the movie (and that scene) are set in New York.

Another vote for the French Connection. As soon as a I saw the thread title that came to mind.

Despite being a bad 80s kid movie, D.A.R.Y.L. has a decent chase scene.
