Countdown of Best Car Chases in Movie History

5. The Dark Knight-
Considering the Batmobile is Batman’s most famous asset, and certainly more notable than his teen sidekick Robin, we wonder why there aren’t more of these classic car chases in the world of great cinema. The determined hero and the evil villain’s pieces of comedy relief make this car chase even greater. Crashes and explosions, flames, and the intensity between the two rivals are all there. What more do you need?

4. The Matrix Reloaded-
Bringing out the computer-generated effects, can usually ruin a good chase scene and look quite fake, but slow-mo and teleporting twins, makes this one of the ultimate car chases in movie history. It’s hard to go wrong with hardcore machine guns and in-car kung fu. It’s definitely a movie totally worth watching again and again.

3. Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift-
It’s hard to pick which driving stunt is the most extreme in the Fast and Furious film franchise, but the big race where Hans dies is completely action packed. An entertaining scene with pretty cool drifts and fantastic cinematography for car racing makes this one of the best car chases in film today.

2. French Connections-
An action packed 1971 film with a car chase that will blow your mind. With a few real car accidents and a high-speed chase between a car and a train taken place in Brooklyn. This chase is a heart-racing scene that keeps you on your toes wanting so much more!

Terminator 2 is the ultimate sequel. It includes macho action that bleeds coolness and an intense three person chase including the relentless Arnold Schwarzenegger cyborg chasing another, even more compelling and powerful Terminator, Patrick, as well as 12 year old John Conner who holds the fate of the world in his hands. An xr100 dirt bike, a massive explosion, and a Winchester 1887 are part of some of the greatest animation I have witnessed in cinema history. Truly a perfectly done scene.
