Part of our Cops season introduced by Robert Senior

Steve McQueen stars as San Francisco Police Department detective Frank Bullitt, as he takes on the criminal underworld as he is held responsible after a witness in his protection is murdered before he can testify. As the plot grows thicker with cases of mistaken identity and thrilling car chases, Bullitt is not the kind of cop to let things lie, and will stop at nothing until the truth is told.

'It is simply one of the most exciting and intelligent action films...probably the best good-cop film we can expect to encounter' -  John Mahoney, The Hollywood Reporter
