Rotten: There isn't much here, and what there is is awfully easy.
- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Thursday, March 1, 2007
Fresh: Even though the story almost makes no sense and the Oscar-winning editing has several illogical cuts, Bullitt is an exquisitely satisfying motion picture, particularly if there is still an adolescent boy lodged somewhere in your psyche.

Solid cop film. Steve McQueen borders between Lethal Weapon and The French Connection in this tale of intrigue and full on action. The car chase. already legendary, was thrilling to watch, and especially nail biting since McQueen mastered all of the stunt driving himself. Still, something didn't quite click for me personally. There was just the right amount of violence, drama, and pause, but personally I believe it would have been less lacking if they included Duvall a bit more.

The car chase scene through the San Francisco streets says it all. Steve McQueen was supercool as the no nonsense detective who goes after the truth against crooked cops and the system to catch a deadly killer. Peter Yates' suspenseful thriller became one of the highest grossing films of 1968,and some 40 years after its initial release,it still reigns supreme as one of Steve McQueen's best.

Steve McQueen is perfectly cast as an ultra cool cop, Jacqueline Bisset has a nothing part but she does what she can with it and is utterly breathtakingly beautiful. The justly famous car chase is great but what is so good about the movie is that it is supported by a good story, a rarity in modern films.
