Steve McQueen stars in this classic action movie about Frank Bullitt, a San Francisco detective who has become hardened to crime. He is assigned by an over ambitious politician Chalmers (Robert Vaughn) to protect a key Mafia member who is due to appear in hearings that would catapault Chalmers into the public eye. But the safe house is ambushed, his friend is murdered and the witness is critically injured. Bullitt decides to search for the origin of the leak and the killers himself, despite Chalmers trying to interfere and shut down the investigation in a bid to keeping the hearings going. The film features one of cinema's most famous car chases, and expert driver McQueen performs all his own stunts.

So many great movies remain unavailable on Steelbook:Dirty Harry,The Conversation,All The President's Men,Outland...i could go on forever with this list but this German release is a good start,so fingers crossed that someone is listening and takes note.
I highly recommend this great movie-and this steelbook for anybody that appreciates cinema at it's best.
every month, I organise one night where I invite friends around to watch a movie that people often talk about, or a movie that is often referenced in other shows or reviews, but I haven't actually seen before.
There are plenty of them, and I only try and claw my way through them one at a time.
March was the turn of Bullitt, the iconic Steve McQueen movie.
It combines 4 great elements of ultimate cool:

Great movie, very 60s feel to it. Jacqueline Bisset is gorgeous, it's surprising she didn't become a bigger star.
It got an oscar for editing apparently, although the feel of the scenes connecting isn't nearly as smooth as the title credits at the start.
Overall though, it seems like the pilot epsisode of a TV series that I never saw, rather than a movie that was to stand up for itself, as there is so much suggestion of the characters being more complicated than we actually see during the show itself.
Still have to watch the bonus documentaries, but look forward to them as my film nerd pals tell me that the making of Bullitt is a story in itself.
Had to watch it straight away and it was an absolute joy. So much better than any of the present cop series, a great story with interest and sensible action. As always the car chase simply has to be the best car chase of all time.
A delight to watch, it's true they don't make films or film stars like they used to.
Buy it, savour it and mourn the loss of good action films and superb actors.
