Bullitt Reviews

Matthew Pejkovic
Matt's Movie Reviews

A low key, tough guy cop thriller, Bullitt does not go over the top with its action sequences and stays away from the usual cop movie clichés, lifting the bar in regards to how cop movies should be made.

Combustible Celluloid

Bullitt takes a rather simple nugget of a story and turns it into a crime classic through the expert use of location footage, editing, music, mood and timing, not to mention the laconic, stoic performance of ultra-cool star Steve McQueen.

Surprisingly austere and very much of its time, Bullitt is a lot less fun and a lot more impressive than you might expect.

Good scripting and excellent direction by Peter Yates maintain deliberately low-key but mounting suspense.

Expert chase film, breathless and modern, that sent McQueen to the top of the box office heap.

There isn't much here, and what there is is awfully easy.

Apart from the classic chase scene, there many other pleasures to be had in this stylish policier, one that changed considerably the entire vocabulary of Hollywood's action-thrillers.

The action sequences are brilliant, done without trickery in real locations (including a great car chase which spawned a thousand imitations) to lend an extraordinary sense of immediacy to the shenanigans and gunfights.

Cinema em Cena

Menos focado na trama e mais nos procedimentos de seu protagonista, Bullitt busca o realismo constantemente, criando um personagem não apenas crível, mas complexo.

Flipside Movie Emporium

A not-very-good movie redeemed by a car chase for the ages.

Stlick, stylish and ineffably cool, this was perhaps McQueen's defining role. Also mention goes to the uncreditied star of the film; San Francisco.

Even though the story almost makes no sense and the Oscar-winning editing has several illogical cuts, Bullitt is an exquisitely satisfying motion picture, particularly if there is still an adolescent boy lodged somewhere in your psyche.

If there is any one of his many movie roles that best exemplifies the McQueen persona, it would have to be this one.

McQueen is great in Bullitt, and the movie is great, because director Peter Yates understands the McQueen image and works within it. He winds up with about the best action movie of recent years.

It's more than just that great car chase. The whole film is gritty, down-to-earth and enjoyable.

Steve McQueen is nevertheless very impressive in his role.

For all of the talk about its legendary car chase through the streets of San Francisco -- and it is justified -- Bullitt idles far tool long in the slow lane when it should be blowing by the minivans and the carpoolers.

Classic McQueen. He's a badass and that car chase still holds up.

A terrific movie, just right for Steve McQueen -- fast, well acted, written the way people talk.

One of the cinema's very best car-chase sequences -- set amid the hilly, windy San Francisco streets -- caps this quintessential Steve McQueen policier.
