The 7 Coolest Car Chases In Asian Cinema

Katie Cannon June 12, 2018 June 12th, 2018

Think Jason Statham’s the only action star out here flagrantly disobeying traffic laws in the name of vigilante heroism? That the Fast & Furious gang are the only guys drifting in Tokyo?  Think again. Hollywood may have a thing for staging high-octane chases in East Asian cities, but Asian cinema’s got no shortage of their own adrenaline-pumping, dizzyingly-shot car chases to fill you with anxiety–and, honestly, a little bit of envy.

Whether you drive a practical mid-size sedan, a luxury sports car, or a 10-seater family SUV, you’ve gotta admit: you’ve always fantasized about and flipping your car across four lanes of traffic to try and outrun a speeding a ticket. No? Just me?

That said– don’t try this at home. I don’t care how impeccable your Toyota’s safety rating is.

The Suspect (2014)

This iconic scene from THE SUSPECT, starring Korean heartthrob Gong Yoo, is seven minutes of pure, heart-stopping thrills. The cars aren’t flashy (one is literally a minivan), but the maneuvers are incredible.
