Just because it’s a comedy doesn’t mean that 1980’s The Blues Brothers can’t contain one of the best (and funniest) car chases ever put on film. John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd are giving it their all here, but kudos to the stunt drivers who managed to pull this sprawling chase off.
This is the movie that deserves the most credit for putting car chase scenes on the map. Steve McQueen’s cool, calm, and collected leading man drives better than anyone else can, and the big car chase sequence in 1968’s Bullitt is beyond words.
Like Mad Max: Fury Road, Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof is a masterclass in the art of the extended car chase sequence. Tarantino utilizes two incredibly violent chases in this film that serve as the midpoint and the finale, and it’s impossible to choose which one is superior.
George Miller’s magnum opus, Mad Max: Fury Road is a sequel thirty years younger than its predecessor and a thousand times more energetic. The entire film is essentially a car chase, making for one of the most adrenaline-fueled moviegoing experiences ever.
He might be better known for playing Han Solo, but Harrison Ford’s portrayal of Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark remains one of the best and most compelling action movie performances ever. This is shown in full force during a daring desert chase.
