AMMO CLIP: Care Chases!
By Dr. Know on February 3rd, 2013
Car chases have been around as long as movies. We’ve seen them thousands of times before, we’ll see them thousands of times again. Regardless of the formulaic nature of them, they’re a mainstay in the action genre and whether we want to admit it or not, it’s one of the elements that keep us coming back to the movies time and again.
Some of my personal faves: the outlandish climactic chase in The Blues Brothers (featured below); the Pittsburgh PD chasing a serial killer in the Bruce Willis actioner Striking Distance had a killer chase (although the movie as a whole fell a little short); and then we have the radio-controlled car loaded with explosives chasing “Dirty” Harry Callahan through the streets of Sand Francisco in The Dead Pool, the fifth and final entry in the Dirty Harry franchise.
There’s plenty of classics covered below and, of course, some of you will agree or disagree with some of the choices made (don’t know why Steve McQueen’s Bullitt chase isn’t featured here), but either way you better sit back, buckle up and enjoy the ride!
