Best Car Chases
The Dark Knight
The chase may be brief, but it’s the resulting David vs Goliath fight to the death between Heath Ledger’s tanker and Christian Bale’s gun-toting Batpod that earns this showdown its place among the best. A nifty bit of wire trickery sees the Caped Crusader eventually come out on top, and in the process deliver one of the most jaw-dropping stunts Hollywood’s produced in years. But, impressive as the victory is, we’re deducting points for the subsequent showboating flourish. Performing a U-turn by driving up a wall, Batty? Plain unnecessary.
