For as long as there have been cars, people have been chasing each other around in them. Between the roar of an engine, the occasional crunching of metal, and the pumping adrenaline, there's something primal about a good car chase that just gets us going.

Unfortunately, local laws, limited funds, and a general concern for our own safety mean that we can't just go out and crunch up cars everyday. This is where Hollywood comes in, filling our favorite movies with over-the-top car chases that allow us to live vicariously through the celluloid and experience the thrill of the chase from the comfort of our couches.

Check out our chronological list of the 25 best movie car chases that every car lover and wannabe action hero should see. When you're done, let us know your favorite movie car chase in the comments below.
