Senator Walter Chalmers is aiming to take down mob boss Pete Ross with the help of testimony from the criminal's hothead brother Johnny, who is in protective custody in San Francisco under the watch of police lieutenant Frank Bullitt. When a pair of mob hitmen enter the scene, Bullitt follows their trail through a maze of complications and double-crosses. This thriller includes one of the most famous car chases ever filmed.

Conclusion Despite being a touch slow moving at times (do we really need to see Bullitt buying groceries or his personal moments with Bisset?) McQueen and the car chase alone make it a good watch, even if the rest of the film never really lives up to said car chase.

I'm really not sure why the short car chase gets so much promotion either, car chases are generally pretty boring given it's 99% intercutting shots of two cars driving real fast and 1% hilariously fake panic zoom to explosion.
