xXx And 6 Other Movies Featuring Logic-Defying Car Scenes That I Love Anyway


Wanted – The Viper Chase Scene

Wanted is often overshadowed by other movies that came out in the summer of 2008, but it has a car chase that rivals anything else from that year. Shortly after Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) learns of his father’s fate and what it means for him, the eventual hero is rescued by Fox (Angelina Jolie) in her pristine Dodge Viper.

This sequence is bonkers, even for a film adaptation of a graphic novel. After Fox pulls a 360 and scoops up Wesley, the two flee the would-be killer and embark upon an epic adventure through Chicago that goes against the natural world. At one point, Fox is on the hood as the car remains in motion, she loses multiple tires and is still able to accelerate and navigate turns, and then there’s the flip over multiple cop cars before landing on the side of a bus and driving away as if nothing happened. Does it make sense? No. Is it awesome? Hell yes.
