  1. What’s not to like, Steve McQueen, a real man who happened to act, fast cars with great pursuit scenes thru San Francisco, cool guns, bad guys break down shotgun and Bulitt’s 2.5in Colt Python and how can anyone forget the beautiful Jacquelin Bisset as Bullits live in girlfriend.
    Hollywood, please don’t mess with perfection, you can’t have someone else paint the Madonna or the Sistine Chapel just let it be!

  2. Sure! One of the best chase scenes of all time. I always liked seeing the Charger lose all of those hubcaps from the left front wheel šŸ˜‰ !

  3. My favourite, seen it over 60 times…..straight, drunk, high, you name it! great cast, great screenplay, fabulous sound track, gritty no nonsense film. Liked the Charger better than the Mustang but I’m a Mopar guy.

  4. If you could get anyone even close(Ryan Reynolds, Matt Damon,) there should be more, but I can’t think of any. You still can’t replace “The King of Kool”.

  5. There are so many great books out there, why do a remake that is doomed to failure. Steve is gone, let him rest in peace.

  6. Bullit was a movie that struck a chord with movie go-ers everywhere.

    It still has a strong following today. The car chase scene was extraordinary in every way including the unforgettable music and photography.

    Steve McQueen will live on for years to come.

    It will always be one of my personal favorites. (:-)-!!!!!!!

  7. Love the movie, and as far as Steve McQueen goes, I would have hung out with him any time! Stole the show in The Great Escape too, he did a lot of his own stunts.

  8. …………I love it when the “chase” sequence starts……… and the pace of the movie immediately goes to a faster pace………… and then “busts loose !” with that left turn…………….. and then its balls to the wall……… ! ! ! ! ! HERE WE GO!!!!!!………………….WOO HOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. I enjoyed it, but it was a run-of-mill cop movie, with a run-of-the-mill McQueen performance. The chase scene was very good, but I doubt most people who claim to love it can give an accurate synopsis of the story. Sure, the car was nice, but, living in L.A., performance-modified pony-cars & muscle-cars were a very common sight on our streets, as familiar as “sweetening” the soundtrack to give cars a more aggressive growl.

  10. They don’t know how to make movies like Bullitt or any other movie Steve McQueen starred. He was also a real race car driver along with Paul Newman. What’s cool today is silly and too “gimmicky.” But I’m 75 and have been way past this era’s significance. It’s a different time and there is never any “going back.” There also will never be another Bert Reynolds. When today’s kids get my age, they will be saying the same thing about their “stuff.” It’s simply a matter of taste.
