37 Of Film's Best Foot Chases | Raiders of the Lost Ark
Raiders of the Lost Ark

Released: 1981
Director: Steven Spielberg
Starring: Harrison Ford

The opening scene of Raiders would be a shoo-in if that boulder had legs and a face, but at least the other contender – the basket chase we have for you here – is equally brilliant, if perhaps not so iconic. Still, it starts with a man with a massive scimitar getting shot point blank and ends with a truck exploding into a ball of flame – something we can all agree makes for a very good foot chase indeed.

22 Where the hell is Seven?
"Plus, got to leave one out otherwise there'd be nothing to talk about, right?" You don't leave out Seven, that's nearly as bad as if you'd left out Point Break. Shocking!!!! More

23 Death Sentence?
Where's the chase through the car park from this? Whatever you think about the film (for the record, I think it's pretty good), it's a fantastic sequence. More

25 Bottle Rocket
Surely the scene from Bottle Rocket where Dignan is chased by the cops. With Rollings Stones '2000 Man' it's pretty gripping and emotional. More

26 Quantum of Solace
So people don't like this one as much because the name is too confusing, or something. But it might be my favorite Bond, and his chase of Mitchell is great. Chase through the sewers all the way through the streets and onto a bell tower? amazing. More

27 Heat
Heat is, of course, a fantastic foot chase but I decided not to put it in because it had too much shooting (see also Lethal Weapon and Gibson vs. Busey) and not enough running and suchlike. Definitely was in our longlist, but was cut out. Sorry about that! As for Se7en, well, Se7en should be in there but honestly I couldn't find my goddamn DVD of it anywhere. Plus, got to leave one out otherwise there'd be nothing to talk about, right? Right? *cough* More

29 WHERE IS HEAT???
Long time reader, but never felt the need to comment before. Really like the list, but this is a massive miss. Heat is an iconic chase, and its amazing! Big miss! More
