What kind of a list is that? It doesn't even mention the THIRD greatest chase movie (behind Vanishing Point and Gone in 60 Seconds), "Duel," starring noted actor Dennis Weaver driving a 4-door Plymouth Valiant and being pursued by an apparently deranged 18-wheeler driver.

(Note: This was a made-for-TV movie in the U.S. but was released in theaters in Europe. It's considered a cult classic over there):

Please disregard this thread...
How about:
* Gumball Rallye
* Cannonball
* Cannonball Run
* Death Race
* Death Proof
* The Italian Job
* It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World
* Man with the Goldern Gun (Or most any Jame Bond movie)
* Fast & the Furious
* Cobra
* Punisher
* Highwaymen
* Hot Rods to Hell
* California Kid
* Beverly Hills Cop
* The Wraith
* Two Lane Blacktop
(Plus many others, and while some of these are better than others, but you get the picture...)
***Bullitt is still number one in my book, with Vanishing Point and Gone in 60 Seconds (original) following
a close second***

I'm actually amazed they included Ronin in that list - definitely one of the best, even if the chase is between a BMW and a... now I've totally forgotten (smacks self on head). Was it an Audi, or some French car? Anyone remember? Either way it's totally badarse.
