Synopsis:
Detective Frank Bullit's new assignment seems routine: protecting a star witness for an important trial. But before the night is out, the witness lies dying and the cool, no-nonsense Bullitt (Steve McQueen) won't rest until the shooters - and the kingpin pulling their string - are nailed. From the opening shot to closing shootout, Bullitt crackles with authenticity: on-location San Francisco filming, crisp dialogue and to-the-letter police, hospital and morgue procedures. An Oscar winner for Best Film Editing (1968), this razor-edged thriller features on of cinema history's most memorable car chases.

Cool as a cougar - Bullitt review by JD

Steve McQueen is just fantastically cool there is no modern day equal. The filming has a nostalgic quality, difficult to pinpoint exactly, possibly the lighting or the lack of reliance on hand held jiggling to simulate action, but it gives the action a more personal, measured and sophisticated air. The dialogue is clear crisp and neat. I wouldn't cite the car chase as particularly memorable, more the characters and the feel of the film.
