While it wasn't all out speed, the chase in Ronin I think was pretty sweet.

I think my favorite after the Gone in 60 Seconds scene is the one from The Rock:

I guess I am young also but I thought it was ok. By far not a classic but for a dollar I am not going to complain and was an easy way to kill an hour and a half

Yeah.

Watched that movie last night. GREAT! I like when he is at the police station and they are playing the video and he is like..."hey, can i get a copy of that?!"

I always liked the chase in Ronin and was going to mention it when I saw the thread title.

Also, before we get caught up in what is realistic and not, let'* not forget that all these over-the-top chase scenes are unrealistic. They also fun as all get out to watch. There'* just something about a chase scene that brings out the macho in a guy.

And yeah, he would have been thrown from that Monte and squashed like a bug....

You CAN'T beat that 750 with the 6-speed row-your-own, though!

Nothing will ever top the chases from "Bullitt" or the original "Gone in 60 Seconds". Real cars, real drivers, real roads. The "oops" in Gone where Eleanor takes out the light pole still makes me cringe every time.

Ronin was the best I've seen. No CGI used, real drivers, real stunts, etc. That movie made me wanna get an S8.
