Take these rather famous chase scenes: Steve McQueen in Bullitt, Gene Hackman’s breakneck chase in The French Connection, the great chase from Ronin. What do they all have in common? They all pale in comparison to what is easily the best car chase match-up of all time: Dirty Harry vs. an RC Controlled 1/10th scale Parma International 1963 Chevrolet Corvette. To put that into scale, it’d be like Tom Cruise fighting a Micro Machine.
Seriously, it happened in 1988’s Dirty Harry entry, The Dead Pool, which also gets points for featuring Guns n’ Roses and Jim Carrey (playing a character that’s basically Axl Rose). Watch Harry Callahan totally outwit an RC racer right now and know that you will never have a car chase experience as glorious as this again.
