Best car chase

Post by Michael Pajaro » Tue Oct 28, 2008 2:11 pm

So I was thinking about the car chases we've seen. And I surprised myself by how many times I thought "that was pretty cool". Here are 4 of the major chase/racing scenes we've seen so far. Vote for your favorite or write-in another scene. But the theme here is "speed", not just favorite scene overall.

The Parking Garage had the most real-life manuevers, the impacts of the bullets looked cool, and of course, ripping the trucks rear axle off was pretty sweet.

I voted for the fireball. I know many people thought it was over the top but it was just enough that I thought it was brilliant. Everything about it was absurd and I just had to smile and laugh along with it. I loved that scene.

I'm also a big fan of the parking garage chase. I just really liked the way it was filmed with the really low camera angles; KITT looked great.

I didn't vote because I would vote for the car crash in A Hard Day's Knight. I'm lovin the real stunts. Not that the VFX aren't totally awesome, but that is what was always cool about TOS, even if they didn't quite make it in a turbo boost, you didn't care cause wow they just jumped that thing for real. Considering all the risk involved you can't help but be really impressed.

I voted Mine Field....I really liked the presentation. (I got scared for KI3T)

I couldn't even tell that it wasn't real at first.

But how about the truck scene of Mike chasing the Hummer in the jungle....

I loved seeing KI3T in the rearview mirror of the Hummer.
