A classic car chase scene is one of the more exhilarating cinematic experiences a serious moviegoer could possibly ask for. So a poorly executed car chase can oftentimes be unrealistic and thereby extremely boring. But a well-crafted one easily keeps the viewer engaged, enthralled, and energized. It wasn’t until Bullitt where Steve McQueen set the standard for car chases because it was shot at actual speed. Nowadays there are many … Continue reading
