Bullitt gets a lot of love for having one of the longest filmed car chases. The chase is indeed spectacular and sprawling (though, I personally find the one in the French Connection to be more thrilling due to the claustrophobia of it.) The rest of the film, save a few great one-liners from a steely-eyed McQueen is pretty average, though.

When the state's witness against the mob he is assigned to protect is assassinated, Lieutenant Frank Bullitt refuses to hand the investigation over to self serving politician Robert Vaughn. Despite his absurdly macho name, Frank Bullitt is not the trigger happy tough guy you'd expect; more the strong, silent type, Steve McQueen oozes charisma as one of the archetypal maverick cops that redefined the entire genre. Peter Yates' direction is as stoic and attentive to detail as Bullitt's investigation and the seminal car chase through the streets of San Francisco featuring McQueen's iconic green Ford Mustang has passed into legend. It is not without its flaws; although very nice to look at, Jacqueline Bissett's love interest is cliched and rather unnecessary and the film inexplicably reveals …
