Must See Movie Car Chases #4
In my last post, I shared with you the measures Alex Roy undertook in order to prepare for a record lap around Manhattan Island. His efforts include a practice lap with a target time of under 30 minutes.
Today, you will understand just how difficult Alex's lap really was.
In Die Hard: With A Vengeance, a German terrorist named Simon, who happens to love a good game of "Simon Says," sends Lt. John McClane and good Samaritan Zeus on a wild goose chase beginning from a payphone at the corner of 72nd & Broadway and ending at a payphone next to the Wall Street Station newspaper kiosk within 30 minutes or else the passengers in the 3 train "vaporizes." Gotta love Hollywood!
This is not your average car chase. This is a race against time!
