Vroom vroom!

by Patrick on 4/4/2013

Although "Bullitt"'s star witness, cop-vs.-politician plot is difficult to follow, the high-speed car chase and the San Francisco locations keep bringing me back. Not to mention, Steve McQueen's cool demeanor and Robert Vaughn's sliminess are worth the price of admission all by themselves. Watch it with the subtitles on and do your best to keep up with -- or make sense of -- the plot.

Product Overview

Before the night is out, the star witness for an important trial lies dying and Detective Frank Bullitt (Steve McQueen) won't rest until the shooters - and the kingpin behind them - are nailed. From opening shot to closing shootout, Bullitt crackles with authenticity: San Francisco locations, crisp dialogue and to-the-letter police, hospital and morgue procedures. An Oscar winner for Best Film Editing (1968), this edgy thriller features one of cinema history's most memorable car chases. Buckle up...and brace for unbeatable action!

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review Bullitt is like few other films of its era: it's a film that humanizes the police in a time when they were viewed as corrupt "pigs," or, by some, as thuggish enemies of freedom; it's a drama with less dialogue than the typical French art film; and it's a motion picture that looks and feels more like a very, very well-made television show than cinema...Oh yes--there's that little car chase, too. Those who actually remember Bullitt today usually don't remember it for McQueen's brilliant acting, or for the great pairing of McQueen and Vaughn, or even for Jackie Bisset--the Liz Hurley of her era--and her unfathomable hotness. No, they remember it because two classic muscle cars spend 15 minutes tearing through San Francisco at ludicrous speeds about 65 minutes into the film. There are car chases, and then there are The Car Chases. There are only two of The Car Chases, and this is one of them.

Review Steve McQueen is sometimes criticized for only playing "himself" in the movies. This misses the boat, I think. Stars like McQueen, Bogart, Wayne or Newman aren't primarily actors, but presences. They have a myth, a personal legend they've built up in our minds during many movies, and when they try to play against that image it usually looks phony..."Bullitt," as everybody has heard by now, also includes a brilliant chase scene. McQueen (doing his own driving) is chased by, and chases, a couple of gangsters up and down San Francisco's hills. They slam into intersections, bounce halfway down the next hill, scrape by half a dozen near-misses, sideswipe each other, and leave your stomach somewhere in the basement for about 11 minutes.
