Here's the Bullitt chase scene from the show Alcatraz we told you about a couple of weeks ago. This time Steve McQueen's role is played by Detective Rebecca Madsen and there's a brand new 2013 Ford Mustang chasing down a new Dodge Charger.
Can you catch all the references to the original?
Predictably, the chase ends all too abruptly and with a massive flip and explosion that's underwhelming when compared to the original. It's TV. It's what you get.
In the show's favor, there's accurate car casting in terms of make/models, updated courtesy of Ford product placement. The chase has a little of the bump-and-grind many re-imaginings skip. There's even the vintage Volkswagen Beetle that keeps showing up, which is a nice wink at fans.
Also, that sound.
What do you think of the chase?
