Cinema’s Best Car Chases, Combined Into One Thrilling Race

Earlier this year, Mad Max: Fury Road elevated the car chase to high art, submitting viewers to two hours of unimpeded, beautifully executed action. With that in mind, it’s a good time to kick back and reflect on the form—and though the car chase montage is not a particularly novel idea, Casper Christensen’s effort, which stitches together dozens of cinema’s most iconic chases into a single, continuous pursuit, is unusually effective.

Besides being an entertaining way to spend five minutes, the video’s an astute catalog of car chase tropes: barely-missed intersection accidents, mangled vehicles spinning out of control, low-angle shots of cars blitzing past the camera. Stick around for the deft, hilarious integration of Indiana Jones and Beverly Hills Cop.
