/ 10

Good scripting and excellent direction by Peter Yates maintain deliberately low-key but mounting suspense.

/ 10

There isn't much here, and what there is is awfully easy.

/ 10

The action sequences are brilliant, done without trickery in real locations (including a great car chase which spawned a thousand imitations) to lend an extraordinary sense of immediacy to the shenanigans and gunfights.

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.
