5 McQueen's best!charliequigley | 17/11/2007 | See all charliequigley's reviews (66)Top 100 DVD Reviewer "Bullitt" is so much more than just "that film with the great car chase". Certainly, the chase scene is still awe-inspiring after all these years. Looking beyond that, though, this is also a brilliant character piece about an alienated cop who's seen it all and cannot relate to society the way most others do.Compared with most modern thrillers, there's little action to speak of in the film and the plot is often rather hard to grasp. None of this matters, though; the sunny San Francisco locations are excellent, the film has a documetary-like realism, the late '60s period is highly evocative... and McQueen is the coolest man in town. He totally inhabits his role, the King of Cool at his absolute pinnacle.
