      Well well TF, "The Rock": Nic is definetly driving a Ferrari. "Wanted": It's a red Dodge Viper Angelina is driving here. Besides that, good list! Love car chases! But missed "Convoy", "Cannonball", "Cannonball Run" and the "Fast & Furious"-Series here...

      Only one Bourne film? The best one was surely in Supremacy with him and KArl Urban causing mayhem in downtown Russia. Ultimatum was good as well, but not as hectic as the first two.

      All good, but where the hell is Hooper? A car chase through an exploding town ending with a rocket car jump? but at least you didn't stick in the dreadful Pod Race from The Phantom Denis Movie.

      Good list. Nice to see the Hidden getting a mention.. great movie. I'd also stick in the speeder bike chase from Jedi

      I'm with Hadouken76, The Bourne Supremacy has an incredible car chase that is in my top 3. The slow build with Urban chasing, the FSB Mercs getting trashed, the utterly remarkable tunnel sequence complete with frenetic score!!! I demand a recount TF.

      lol yeah you dont want to be playing that soundtrack on the motorway! Hey does Keanu Reeves 'Speed' count? It wasnt really being chased and wasnt a car... but neither was 'The French Connection'! Nit-picking ahoy!

      What about the first Toy Story? That had a pretty good chase scene in a radio controlled car.. on that note I'd put Runaway in as well.. Tom Selleck vs Radio Controlled Bombs!!

      If you're going to include pseudo-chases (e.g., "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Dark Knight"), then you really should limit your list to no more than 20. Many of your entries are so fake-looking and inauthentic that I don't even consider tham to be car chases. (I certainly don't consider any of the "Transformers" movies to be car chases.) They are simply exercises in melding CGI and other newer technologies. They will never have the weight and presence that "The French Connection" or "To Live and Die in LA" have.

      Firstly i agree that the car chase from the Bourne Supremacy is definitely better than Identity. And secondly, where is The Way Of The Gun. One of my favourites. really tense, tactical almost and just downright cool!

      Also if we are going for car chases that aren't really car chases then why not go for the APC rescue in Aliens? Truly awesome scene. "You had your chance Gorman!"

      I agree with Hadouken76 that Supremacy had the best car chase scene out of all the Bourne films, even though they were all great. Also, even though not as good as the chase scene from The Dark Knight, I thought the Tumbler chase scene in Batman Begins was worth a mention as well. Great list all in all though. Bullit, French Connection and Ronin being my personal favourites.

      Doyle was chasing an elevated train with just the one villain aboard, not a 'subway train full of villains.' At least it made the list.
