  1. This is definately one of the most boring movies I have ever seen. I bought the title because of the ravings about the car chase and forced myself through the rest of the film. Since everyone else rated this movie so well, you might think I’m an idiot for my opinion. If you haven’t seen the movie, give it a try and you decide. Oh, and Bullitt and his 68 Mustang are NOT CHASING A GTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT’S A CHARGER!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you very much for your time and consideration!

  2. Not to offend anyone who liked this film, but I simply couldn’t find anything inherently good about it. Except for the car chase, but then again, couldn’t the two villains have had some sort of dialog! For the entire car chase the two don’t utter a word! Unbelievable.

    Bad script and wooden acting = bad movie.

    The movie came out in ’68, one year after I was born and I had always heard great things about the chase scene, but to me this alone doesn’t warrant purchasing this film. Sorry.

    Should have bought the SD-DVD! I should add that the transfer was pretty good.

  3. Simply worded, this movie is far beyond horrible. I do not know how anyone gets away with claiming it as an action movie. There is VERY VERY few action in it, the remainder of the film being the most boring content you will EVER find. I am also disappointed to see so many people claim this as a car movie. I can remember 2 times when Bullitt is even driving his 68 Mustang. One being a short trip on his way to bulls**t forever, and the other being the “classic” car chase, which is the only good part of the movie. If only it would have been longer, and replaced all the pointless footage that does not even pertain to the storyline. If you are looking for a car movie, even a horrible one, you MUST stay away from this title. The wait for the car chase is not worth your time and disappointment. On the other hand, if you’re more into watching someone going around, watching them eat sandwiches and other foods, having the most irksome conversations in the history of film, sometimes just staring at people for long periods of time, or if you’re having problems falling asleep, then this is THE movie for you.

  4. Steve McQueen in my opinion has made lotsa dull films (not The Great Escape and The Magnificent Seven.) Most of the film he looks at dead people at the morgue, and little else. He barely pays attention to his case. This movie is too […] detailed. I remember them showing him in the grossery store 16 times. The film slowly got tiresomely slow. I was squirming in my seat 37 minutes before the car chase. When it came, all I heard was roaring motors. It was so damn pointless that after the car chase I decided to fast foward to the airport shootout. Big mistake! It was just as slow-paced as the car chase, only worse. The film is just too terrible for me to talk of anymore. I recommend it to […] fans of dated films. Peace out!

  5. Bullitt is an insanely boring movie. Boring, boring, boring.

    I remembered watching parts of it — including the famous car chase — when I was a kid, and not liking it, and now that I’m older, with a better appreciation of classic cinema, I thought I would give it another try.

    Big mistake. This film brings new meaning to the word dull. If you enjoy watching long stretches of bland actors doing absolutely nothing of interest, then this movie is for you. If interesting to you is watching five minutes of Steve McQueen driving home from the hospital, parallel parking, locking his car, walking across the street, buying some vegetables and TV dinners, walking down the sidewalk, climbing up the stairs to his apartment, etc ad infinitum… then don’t let me stand in your way. But if you have a pulse, and expect one from your movies, don’t touch this one with a ten-foot pole.

    The only people I can see enjoying this are those who find the circa-1968 San Francisco locations inherently interesting — and they are really only put to good use during that car chase — or those who buy into the Steve McQueen mystique. Well, I don’t. McQueen has the charisma of a sack of doorknobs. If his personality is best displayed here in this, his most famous role, then I have zero desire to ever see another one of his leading roles. He hasn’t seemed quite so spectacularly irritating in ensemble films (The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape), but as a star he’s a dud.

    And about that car chase: BORING! I can’t even imagine it being of interest to 1968 audiences, when such extended car chases were still novelties, and for audiences of today — they have more exciting chases on Touched by an Angel. Best car chase ever? Ridiculous. It’s as dull as the rest of this interminable film. If you want to see a real car chase, watch Ronin.

    Bullitt is a relic. Its rep is built on the cult of McQueen. It is utterly lacking in appeal.
