There are bad cops and there are good cops ... and then there's Bullitt. Steve McQueen stars as Lt. Frank Bullitt in the role that made him a superstar as the hard-bitten police detective assigned to protect the star witness in a Congressional investigation. But when the witness is murdered, Bullitt mercilessly tracks a trail of lies and corruption that leads all the way to the halls of power in Washington. Steve McQueen performed his own stunts, driving the Ford Mustang in the high-speed pursuit through San Francisco that stands as one of the best and most famous car chases ever filmed.

Great chase scene still works in violent, classic cop tale.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this 1968 cop movie remains famous for its lengthy, white-knuckle chase scene through the streets of San Francisco. It's a no-nonsense, grown-up thriller with a focus on characters and details rather than action and suspense. Even though star Steve McQueen is still cool, and even though the car chase still works, some younger viewers may find the movie a bit dull. It does have some grisly shootings, with spurting blood and gory corpses. The main character and his girlfriend share some intimate scenes with no nudity, and there are a couple of choice swear words saved for the film's final sequence.
