"...the forerunner of the modern cop thriller.  Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"...the gritty, realistic take on police work makes this thriller classic.  Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald
"...now-classic car chase, one of the screen's all-time best...  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide

Editor's Note
In one of his most memorable roles, Steve McQueen stars as Detective Frank Bullitt, a hard-driving, tough-as-nails San Francisco cop. Bullitt has just received what sounds like a routine assignment: keep a star witness out of sight and out of danger for 48 hours, then deliver him to the courtroom on Monday morning. But before the night is out, the witness will lie dying of shotgun wounds, and Bullitt, a no-glitter, all-guts cop, won't rest until he nabs the gunmen and the elusive underworld kingpin who hired them.

From opening shot to closing shootout, Peter Yates's edge-of-the seat thriller is packed with authentic touches, from on-location San Francisco filming and believably crisp dialogue to uncompromisingly detailed police, hospital, and morgue procedures. The most memorable scene is BULLITT's celebrated car chase. McQueen, an expert automobile and motorcycle racer, does his own stunt driving as he propels his high-performance Mustang GT around and over San Francisco's fabled hills at speeds up to 115 miles an hour. The film is based on Robert L. Pike's book, MUTE WITNESS.

Professional Reviews

USA Today
"Steve McQueen was cool, tight-lipped and could maneuver his wheels in a hilly car chase..." 12/05/1997 p.4D

Uncut
"A landmark crime caper." 08/01/2005 p.136

Sight and Sound
"Yates' sleek cop thriller stands up well....The film makes excellent use of its location settings." 09/01/2005 p.86

DVD Verdict 9 of 10
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. - David Ryan

Chicago Sun-Times 10 of 10
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. - Roger Ebert
