Bullitt keeps a shriek ascending through the last reel.
October 17, 2018
It is simply one of the most exciting and intelligent action films in years, probably the best good-cop film we can expect to encounter.

This feeling of life around the edges of the action is BuIlitt's special note.
July 6, 2010
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 clichs, lifting the bar in regards to how cop movies should be made.
May 7, 2010
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.
May 5, 2008
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.
March 1, 2007
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.
February 7, 2007
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.

Menos focado na trama e mais nos procedimentos de seu protagonista, Bullitt busca o realismo constantemente, criando um personagem no apenas crvel, mas complexo.

A not-very-good movie redeemed by a car chase for the ages.
July 6, 2005
Stlick, stylish and ineffably cool, this was perhaps McQueen's defining role. Also mention goes to the uncreditied star of the film; San Francisco.
June 21, 2005
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.
