What is the Best Movie Car Chase of All Time? Science has the Answer.
Results of the research were revealed after hooking up volunteers to heartbeat monitors
If your idea of the best movie is where a lot of car chases happen and things blow up frequently, then it’s likely you have watched films like James Bond, Batman, Fast and Furious, Jason Bourne, etc. on repeat. But which of these you consider as the best among those? Well, science has tried to answer this intriguing question.
The study to find the best movie car chases was conducted by money.co.uk. It unveiled that the best car chase movie of all the time that raised people’s heartbeats was Mad Max: Fury Road. The results of the research were revealed after hooking up 100 volunteers to heartbeat monitors. Their heartbeat was tracked while they got to enjoy several good car chase involving films. During the research, the beats per minute were monitored while the participants enjoyed car chase scenes. The average resting heart rate was about 64 beats per minute for the test group.
The study that named Mad Max: Fury Road as the best movie car chase stated “To make things fair for movies that aren’t action-packed all the way through. In each case, we only counted the average BPM for the car pursuit scenes within a movie towards the film’s overall score, not the entire film.”
Mad Max: Fury Road was named as the best movie car chase scene as it raised the BPM by 33%. It translates to the average increase in heart rate to 85 BPM from 64 BPM. Other names on the list are five Fast and Furious films, The Dark Knight, The Bourne Identity, Baby Driver and Quantum of Solace. (speaking of fast cars, have you checked Ferrari SF90 Spider yet?)
The study not just shared the best movie car chases, it also shared some interesting data like the fact that the car chase in Matrix reloaded destroyed 300 cars. It also mentioned that Furious 7 was the highest-grossing car chase movie, and the longest chase was 40 minutes and went to Gone in 60 Seconds. The most exciting chase actor was Dwayne Johnson. (And we agree!)
