5.0 out of 5 stars Still cool, 14 Oct 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bullitt (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
40 odd years later and still one of the coolest movies ever made. I suppose what makes it so damn cool (besides the presence of Steve McQueen) is the minimal dialogue but each word is meaningful to the plot and character development. So much is also conveyed in looks and expression. A marvelously constructed and tense movie with real characters. And of course THE car chase that started them all. And no CGI or special effects in sight. Just real cars with real drivers on real roads and no ludicrous near misses such as with have these days where you need to suspend all disbelief. People actually die rather than walk away from massive explosions etc only requiring a band aid and a glib one liner. Well acted and tightly directed this movie has held up really well over time. Buy it you will not be disappointed.

Anyone know actually how many words McQueen says in this fim? It can't be a lot, but his silence speaks volumes. I particularly like the scene where smarmy Chalmers (Vaughn) demands his witness with a writ of 'habeus corpus' and Bullitt (McQueen) simply ignores him! The best way to deal with obnoxious people and always makes me smile. It *is* the quiet passages in this film that make it so effective. And McQueen is so cool you could store a side of beef in him. (This film will not work for bang-crash merchants, but for fans of authenticity, this rocks.)
