Cars in Cinema
Cars in cinema are more than just being cars. They are iconic and serve a purpose to the stories and the characters. While certain cars might just be flashy pieces for people to buy them as in Transformers, some cars are integral and mirror what the characters represent.
Today we are going to look at our five favorite cars in cinema and how they represent their drivers.
Our Favorite Cars in Cinema
Mad Max – From the early 1970’s with Mel Gibson to the soft reboot with Tom Hardy, the car that Mad Max has driven has been through hell and so has the driver. Mad Max’s car is the most iconic to me because I’ve seen it take the main character through four decades of turmoil.
John Wick – John Wick’s Car drives the plot of the first movie and seals that door at the beginning of the second. John Wick’s car is the reason his life gets turned upside down and the reason why he sticks out among his peers.
Baby Driver – Cars are weapons in Baby Driver, and while they do trade cars quite often, the one that sticks out to me still is the red Subaru from the opening scene. This sticks out from the crowd and is used as a diversion tactic towards the climax of the scene with excellent style.
Smokey and The Bandit – Smokey and The Bandit is a great example of how you can unite characters and show that unity through using a car. Between the slide over the hood of the car to the slamming of the top when performing crazy stunts, Smokey and The Bandit wouldn’t be themselves without that car.
Bullitt – Finally, I would be sinning if I didn’t include Bullitt or Vanishing Point. For me, Bullitt is my preferred version of these two cars. Both in execution and story.
