Worst Car Chase Movie of All Time! 10 years 9 months ago #4706

Well speaking about the worst movies, maybe it's time for us car chase-specialists, Ladies and Gentlemen, to elect the
WORST CAR CHASE MOVIE OF ALL TIME!
What do you people think about that.? I mean not even the bad one's but the WORST

Following CARLO's suggestion, let's hear some nominees.

Mitchell (1975) 10 years 9 months ago #4711

Might as well start the discussion.

Although a glance at the bottom rated films appearing on the Chase Rating List offers quite a few car chase stinkers (and a few films which should not be in the database as well, but that's another story), I have to stick with my nomination for lamest chase in this thread made quite a while back, namely, Mitchell (1975). I remember that one of its automotive 'highlights' included a scene in which the pursued car merges with traffic. Not much else on the excitement front.

STORMBREAKER, LETHAL WEAPON & SEOUL RAIDERS 10 years 9 months ago #4716

Although I've been interested in car chases since 5 years ago, due to financial control and parental restrictions, I've been not been able to get my hands on that many car chases (even a few of the classics, usually I try to catch them on free-to-air), to be able to give a definitive Worst Chase Ever.

I'd say the most dissapointing chase I've seen so far is a fairly recent one, Anthony Horowitz's Stormbreaker. Granted, there were no chases at all in the book, but from the trailers I expected a lot more. Instead, what materialised were not one, not two, but four half-inspired (and dare I say, half-baked) chases. I mean, the first had a BMW Z4, and it ultimately met its end in a car crusher :( x

Lousiest helicopter chase was Lethal Weapon. Boring, and far too short. On a side note, there's a website that's quite similar to IMCDB that's for helicopters. Check it out!

Worst Asian cinema pursuit is probably Seoul Raiders. The entire movie was cutesy-kawaii-cheese, and the final pursuit involved a brawl on a seaplane crawling down the highway with the entire police force struggling to catch up. I couldn't stop laughing at its atrocity.

TDIT's exhilarating mashup of the coolest car flick with the best animated film of the year! Fast & Feathered 5 Click sig to watch!

Most annoying Car Chase
The Nicholas Cage remake of 'Gone in 60 seconds'.
Don't ever mess with a cult classic! Despite a huge budget there were very few chase sequences,and when it did finally get itself into gear everything seemed to depend on obvious CGI instead of actual stunts.Unfair!

Most disapointing car chase
Corvette Summer.
Mark Hamill spends 80 tedious minutes tracking down the thieves who stole his beloved Stingray and the stage is at last set for a brilliant car-chase Finale to redeem a boring film. It doesn't happen. Two cars (in long shot) race along a desert road until one of them slowly flips over. I want my money back!

Worst Car Chase Movie
Runner up:
Smokey bites the dust.
Producer Roger Corman rips off his audience by re-using ALL the car chase footage from many of his other movies. Boo!

Winner:
SPEEDTRAP.
The stunts are great;the film is laughably bad.
Believe it or not,it's a 'car-chase whodunnit'.
The Policewoman did it.
There;I've just saved you the bother of watching it :wink:

Haha, you got a few points there UK Duke ..
I agree, the gone in 60 sec- remake is simply not good.
In my carchase collection I kept like the 7 last minutes from 'Corvette Summer', that's enough....the desert landscapes are nice as well as the empty freeway and the Corvette looks so cheesy oldschool that I'm afraid this style will be cool again in 5 years time..
Well I agree with you on Speedtrap. Very bad acting :( , a totally weird plot, cheesy music BUT the numerous carchases are really good, actionpacked and worth watching.
I would like to add following films as nominees :
Car Crash (1981) An italian-spanish-mexican co-production about an illegal race... the Nascar footage at the beginning was stolen somewhere else, the movie cars look totally weird and some of the chases are 'doubled' with small scale radio controlled cars.
Deadly Angels (1979) a movie made in the Phillipines starring gangsters in rusty US-cars who steer and crash straight into trees in places where absolutely nobody would hit something , an outlaw motorcycle gang on 50ccm Mopeds! and cars exploding while hitting each other at 7 mph.

Does anyone know where I can find this gem?
