What are the best movies and docos with the best bike/car chases/races ever committed to film??? steve mcqueen's bike chase to escape the nazis in "the great escape" would have to be the kind of awesomeness benchmark i am aiming for. H.B. Halicki's "Gone in 60 seconds" (NOT the remake) After featuring the thefts of 47 of the most exotic cars in existence before 1974, the film boasts THE most absolutely epic car chase scene i have EVER witnessed on film. -93 cars were wrecked or destroyed in the 40 minute chase scene. Halicki's crash into a light pole at 100mph is in the film. "the french connection" has a pretty cool car chase, as does "Bullitt" "Mad max" "mad max 2" "the terminator" "terminator 2"
