The old one is better, I've only seen parts of it, and the remade one is pretty good, but the other one is a classic...The Blues Brothers was even better though...with the Chicago chase scene :clap:

I remember seeing the original in the video store right when the remake came out. I meant to rent it but life got busy. I haven't been able to find it since. I look everytime I go to a video store. I figure I'll just order it online one of these days. If memory serves, didn't they wreck over 150 cars (I'm thinking it was 173 or something) making the original?

Definately the original one, i've seen it twice and could watch it amny times more. I like it more cause its all real, they used only one Mach 1 for all stunts and even had some screw ups that mad ethe movie better (if you know which things were mistakes). The original was all about the car (especially the 40 minute chase scene), the remake was too fake (even the jump AND the car(s) 'Eleanor').

They wrecked 93 cars which was a record at the time, then the guy who made that movie then made 'The Junkman' and wrecked about 150 cars, he was working on 'Gone in 60 Seconds 2' when he died on set during a stunt gone wrong.. he was aiming to wreck over 400 cars, movie got mostly done and you can actually get it on DVD (havent seen it yet).

Those were good...but I tell you the best chase scene I ever saw was in the movie Bullitt. Excellent. The one in The French Connection is supposed to be excellent too, but I never saw that one.

Wow, I was way off.

Yeah, about chase scenes. Ronin has a great one as well.

hmmmm ok ive seen both ive got the original on dvd it said something about him hitting a light bulb during the car chase and injuring himself so yea. i liked the end bit tht was crack up how they arrested the wrong person

but what will be really cool is if they made a game sorta like GTA but more centered around cars. that is what id say is awesome

Ya, there was a few things that went wrong but they left in, like the part you mentioned of hitting the lightpole at over 80MPH or so (the car that clipped him was supposed to slow down). Another mistake was the cop car that hit the Cadillacs outside a dealership (it was only supposed to hit one, instead took out 3 or 4, and 2 were his own cars and one was the acual dealerships). He also almost took out his friend when he ran into a roadblock cause the car didnt skid sideways in time.

I think that game idea would be pretty sweet, not sure if they'd ever do it though. I think the car/chase scenes are the most important parts and would love that in a game. Maybe you should write to all of the video game makers :mrgreen:

Yeah, a GTA type movie would be pretty sweet, just any movie with car chases, and fighting...just pure action would be sweet, with no drama, or romance or any of that crap, doesn't even have to make sense

lol that would be funny

"so what now?"
"i don't know."
*fight scene*
"oh s**t cops!!!"
*car chase*
"we made it..."
*car blows up*

I prefer the remade for some reason.

I pick the second, only because of a certain Ms. Jolie.
They are both good, IMHO.
