The Ten Fakest Movie Car Chases Ever Filmed

Prepare yourself for the most over-the-top examples of the film industry's most over-the-top trope: the car chase.


10.) Speed Zone/Cannonball Fever/ Cannonball Run III

They skip a Lamborghini across a lake. That's all you need to know.

9.) 200 M.P.H

The award for 'Worst CGI' goes to the final race in this turd.

8.) Escape From L.A.

The hero, on a surfboard, races a car and wins.

7.) Smokey and the Bandit

Okay, so there's no way all the jumps and automotive decapitations could actually happen. That's fine. The movie still rules, though.

6.) Blues Brothers

How come one of the most obviousy fake movie chases is one of the best?

5.) Speed

Would that all buses could jump like that.

Suggested By: Sportwagons

4.) Fast and the Furious 5

Any F&F movie could be on here (the neverending runway of the last one could just as easily take the spot), but the vault-dragging fifth movie has the most blatant violation of the laws of physics.

3.) Singham

While I recommend watching all of the fan-Bollywood-tastic movie, skip to 2:00 in for one of the crowning moments in impossible automotive cinema.

2.) Driven

They're not wearing their helmets! Other than that, this entire street race is completely believable.


Suggested By: McMike, Jim Slade, everyone

1.) Alluda Majaka

Everyone knows that India could not be defeated in a completely ridiculously endearingly impossible film competition. I mean, the guy slides a horse.
