MORE movies to add to my must-watch list! Thanks for the additional ideas!

Kevin, "49th Parallel" is another movie I've never heard of but which stars two of my favorite actors from that era, Leslie Howard and Raymond Massey -- so I'm really anxious to see it. Any idea if there's an online link somewhere?

The Wikipedia write-up on the movie makes it sound like a fascinating reflection of wartime fervor to get the United States involved in fighting the Nazi menace:

I saw if a few times on TCM a few years ago.

Eddie Macon's Run (1983) - IMDb
Mean Dog Blues (1978) - IMDb
Savages (TV 1974
Westworld (1973) - IMDb ~ Before "The Terminator", there was Gunslinger's relentless pursuit at his leisurely, steadily disintegrating pace.
The Brother from Another Planet (1984) - IMDb ~ I seem to recall a pursuit of The Brother by the aliens-in-black who sort of cat-pounce along in a rather cool way.

Best foot chase movie in my opinion is a tie between...

The Warriors


and...

Judgement Night

"Hard Target" (my favorite Van Damme movie) also qualifies, with its human hunters tracking their prey after giving them a sportsmanlike head start.
Totally forgot about that one. Yeah, that's a good one too! There's also one with Ice-T that reminds me of this one, but I forgot the name of it.

Yeah, that Point Break chase scene was one of the all time best foot chases in a movie. Also, nothing like that song that was playing in the foot chase you mentioned in Bloodsport....lol

I came so close to listing "The Warriors"! I wasn't sure if their cross-city trek would qualify. I guess they do repeatedly have to make a run for it, don't they?

"War-ri-ors, come out to play-e-ay. War-ri-ors, come out to pla-e-ay!" ~~ *cringe* David Patrick Kelly entered cinematic history thanks to that, along with the clinking glass bottles. Of course, he's also the great psycho, shapeshifting baddy in "Dreamscape".

The heart-pounding foot chase scene in Point Break is the one I remember best.
