Exciting automotive stunts have the power to take an action film from excellent to great, especially when they make creative use of real-world effects. Big vehicle stunts continue to astonish audiences even after hundreds of action films have used cars as a child uses inexpensive toys. Here are few movies featuring great car stunts
Ford v Ferrari (2019)
There is a lot of amazing stunt driving in Ford vs Ferrari. Although Ford vs. Ferrari isn’t as filled with spectacular crashes and flips that many action movies feature, it is still one of the best depictions of high-speed racing in a motion picture.
An American Werewolf in London (1981)
Following his transformation into an adult movie theater, David reappears on Piccadilly Circus, one of the busiest tourist destinations in London. When the werewolf appears, people panic and a number of automobiles skid and crash into people or pile up on the pavement. Along with a motorcycle, a double-decker bus, and liters of fake blood, there is anarchy everywhere.
Baby Driver (2017)
Baby’s amazing driving prowess and inventiveness are on full display in the first chase, as he speeds throughout Atlanta in a Subaru Impreza WRX. The video quickly sequences many amazing exploits together, one of which being a power slide uphill around a hairpin turn.
Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)
Reversing the course of an automobile chase is a novel strategy taken by Kingsman: The Secret Service. The Subaru Impreza was completely disassembled and reassembled backwards for the scene. Because of this, the car was able to maneuver through the streets of London without requiring the reverse speed limiter to be removed or spinning out too quickly.
The Italian Job (1969)
Mini Coopers are well-known for being used as getaway cars in The Italian Job. Before tearing through the sewers and getting onto a moving bus, the Minis execute precise drifts around the streets. The entire scene is a masterclass in stunt driving, and even after more than 50 years, it remains thrilling.
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
Mad Max: Fury Road is essentially a continuous, throbbing action film that expands the exhilarating chase scene from Mad Max 2 into a whole film. In addition to an impressive collection of stunt driving, there are other spectacular feats to select from. When marauders nearly take over Furiosa’s large rig, it’s a very striking scene.
The Dark Knight (2008)
Christopher Nolan opted for physical effects instead of a lot of computer-generated imagery while flipping a truck in a crowded place, as many other directors would have done. The truck flip in The Dark Knight was accomplished in full size, with a piston under the vehicle to halt it dead in its tracks. However, Nolan did employ some miniatures for the driving scenes.
Casino Royale (2006)
One of the riskiest James Bond feats ever, it sends stunt driver Adam Kirley spinning spectacularly seven times. The car appears to be hovering in midair for a brief while, but this illusion is swiftly dashed by the forceful hit. Stunts don’t have to be as spectacular as this—the Aston Martin roll is proof of that.
Furious 7 (2015)
The first several movies focus on street racing, but by the time of Fast Five, things get kicked up a few notches. One of the most ridiculous stunts in the whole Furious 7 trilogy is the cargo plane drop. The production actually drop vehicles from two Lockheed C-130 Hercules cargo planes flying over the Arizona desert, but the actors were created using computer-generated imagery.
The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)
The corkscrew jump was completed by stunt driver Loren “Bumps” Willert in a single try. Even more uncommon than a 360-degree barrel roll is spinning 270 degrees, but the stunt is executed flawlessly.
