Bullitt starring Steve McQueen and Robert Vaughn
Director Peter Yates
Walter Chalmers (Robert Vaughn) is in town for a senate hearing on organized crime. His key witness John Ross needs protection. Chalmers requests the the help of Police Lieutenant Frank Bullitt (Steve McQueen). Bullitt takes the job, but Ross is murdered under his team's watch. Now Bullitt will stop at nothing to find those responsible .
Bullitt is one of those movies that just doesn't get old. The famous car chase scene alone is as good as any car chase you might see in a modern day movie. In my opinion the chase scene in Bullitt is really the father to all our modern day car chase scenes. If I'm making a movie and a car chase scene is needed. I want it to be as awesome as Bullitt.
McQueen was excellent as Frank Bullitt. McQueen really made you believe Bullitt was this tough, I'm not afraid of anything cop. Robert Vaughn did a great job as the glory seeking and overly ambitious Walter Chalmers. He really made me hate Chalmers.
Reasons to watch Bullitt. It's a classic. do your self a favor and watch some of the older films out there. You'll be surprised at how many you'll end up liking. Once again it has that awesome chase scene.
It has one of the coolest actors to ever live. But the main reason is that Bullitt has a great story. You really don't see what's coming.
