After I put up the car chase from "The Seven-Ups" a couple of days ago, a number of readers wrote to claim that the chase from "Ronin" was better. I'm not so sure. After all, it's far less believable than the earlier one - for example, just look at the way both cars mount the kerb early in the chase. If you tried that for real, in those same cars, you'd be looking at busted CV joints and bits and pieces of bodywork bouncing down the pavement. No way!
However, I'll admit that if you're willing to suspend disbelief, it's enjoyable and very tense. Judge for yourself. It's worth watching it in full-screen mode.
Personally, I prefer older car chase scenes like those in "Bullitt" or "The Seven-Ups" - I just find them more believable. However, for gee-whiz hi-tech editing tricks, stuff like "Ronin" isn't bad at all. (Yeah, I'm an old fart. Deal with it.)
