What, no Diamonds are Forever?
I love this stuff. When I went into my parents' room past bedtime, my dad used to let me stay up late if one of these movies (especially a Connery-era Bond film) was on TV.
William Friedkin was on the radio the other week, and he talked about how they didn't block off the area before shooting that, so they put many non movie people at potential risk. A link to the audio is here.
I hate the Ronin one (and the film). Rewatching the scene just now it became clear that I dislike it so much because the acting sucks. Hackman's acting--the absolute fear he has at what he's doing, combined with the adrenaline rush he must be feeling at chasing the man who just shot at him--is tremendous. Watching De Niro and others pull gearshifts and remain mostly calm while glancing in their rear views is boring and on of the reasons 007 movies bore the shit out of me.
