I was getting ready to exclaim: "Where's Point Break!?", but all is well. Cool article, by the way.

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!

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*

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.

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

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.

You don't leave out Seven, that's nearly as bad as if you'd left out Point Break. Shocking!!!!

The one in Insomnia between Pacino and Robin Williams is a underrated one.

The man with the best run in Hollywood doesn't make your list, we could have had, Minority Report or Mission: Impossible 3 in there....

Wasn't there a brilliant chase inside the football stadium in this Argie masterpiece? I seem to recall their was, but was distracted by the incredible shot that preceeds it, with the camera sweeping in over Buenos Aires and into the stadium in the midst of a game.

I always though the foot chase in Brick, where Joseph Gordon-Levitt gets chased by a drug-dealer before tripping him into a lamp post, was pretty good.

You might be pleased to hear Tony Jaa isn't in the monkhood any more - he was there for a year (some Thai men choose to do this. Sort of like military service in some other countries). He's now making Tom Yum Goong 2 with Jeeja Yanin from 'Chocolate'!

Are the lists even ranked? it seems like the end of the list (with Point Break) may be top picks

What about the two excellent, "running-out-of-breath" foot chases from the South Korean serial killer film, "The Chaser"?

Good shout people! I'm sure Minority report and MI3 should be on here too! Good list regardless.
