This car chase movie was mentioned in the later part of Tarantino's Movie. During the scene in the Diner, When Zoe Bell said, she want to ride a vintage Dodge Challenger from the 70s flick. I luck out and found the video at a B&N with a video department. For a 70s Movie. I like it! Even though it didn't have a happy ending. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes, I would!

My headline says it all. I don't claim to know a lot about cars, but I think I understand the mentality, or at least the idealization of it. Man, machine, mission. This is the tripod of a whole bunch of movies, but that and even the anti-hero message of the Nixon/Vietnam era don't glare so brightly and senselessly in this movie. MAYBE the guest appearances but nearly every cultural stereotype of the decade plays on the nerves. But the movie doesn't ask too many blatant questions, and keeps just shy of offering answers. Like the man, the movie moves. It can't stop to explain every single motivation and every choice. Maybe that makes it simple, and maybe it cloaks that simplicity in a mountain of subtext. I guess it's a rare driving movie that makes you think these things - All love to Gumball Rally, but I wasn't really questioning the meaning of life and what choices are really ours to make in that movie. Wonderful performances from the main cast, and some interesting supporting performances. In the end, definately worth the watch.

Any man will love this film especially if you drove fast before radar. The premise of the film actually is about a bet and men needing to win. Then there is race with the E-type and while Barry wins, he stops to make sure the other guy is OK, which is how men compete. If you have ever outrun the cops, just once, then your mind will melt into this character. The ending and the racism are shocking enough to keep it real. This film is always next to my player just in case I need a 90 min escape.

After Bullitt and before Fast and Furious, this is a MUST SEE for car buffs or those who just love a darn good car chase. Barry Newman is one swift character who does not say much (mostly watchs his review mirror) . I remember seeing this movie when it first came out, slightly after Dodge introduced the Dodge Challenger. Boy oh Boy I couldnt think of a better Chrysler Muscle car promo then this movie. The timing was uncanny. Mopar fans and heck, even Chevy and Ford Fans will like this movie. The ending I must say was flat out dumb, what the hell was this guy thinking but then again, would you actually believe Rocky would survive his punchs and get up.. It only Hollywood!

Vanishing Point has a cult following for its well directed car chase sequences. It is known as one of the best made of the car chase movies of the late 60's and early 70's. Two of those include Bullit and the original Gone In 60 Seconds. This movie was not a box office hit when it came out in 1971. It usually played to young audiences in Drive In theaters across the country. It's story was not so much about a lone driver and the car chase across the west, but a glimpse at a part of America few people ever saw. As Kowalski hurdles his way across the desert, out driving and out running the police in his Dodge Challenger. He encounters the often unseen world of odd early 70's counter cultures, religions, and social outcasts. Each of those connecting with him and his plight. We are given a wild ride through the underbelly of a turbulent time in 20th century America. This is what sets it apart from the rest of the car chase movies. Watch it the first time and enjoy the high speed driving. Watch it the second time for the story that is woven into the chase.

Im watching this movie on Speedvision right now. If it was on DVD I'd be ordering it. The entire movie is a car chase. It has Cleavon Little (the dude from Blazing Saddles) and that makes it even better. Check this movie out!
