1. You can't top the truck chase from Raiders.
2. Jungle chase comes in close second.
3. Tank chase is a pretty close third as well.
4. Motorcycle chase.
5. Warehouse chase.
6. Street chase.
7. Mine cart chase. I hate to put any of these at last place because they're all great action scenes.

What about the Boulder Chase? lol

The warehouse chase is my favorite part of the entire series. I absolutely love when he's running on top of the crates, getting shot at, and swings and misses. That particular version of the Raiders March that's being played there is my favorite, and to my knowledge, is only played twice in the entire series. That's what I imagine Indy to be outside of the movies- using the whip a lot more to swing and do cool stuff like that.

I loved the part in the Marshall College chase when Indy gets yanked into the car, comes out the other side, and Mutt jumps on the brakes to get him back on. I thought the jungle chase was a lot of fun too, with the characters going from one car to the other. So I think that my favorite chases came from KoTCS, although I enjoy them all.

The chase scenes are the best parts of the movie. Anyone can film a car chase, but with Indy, they always make it slightly different and new.

1.Truck Chase – Raiders – Can’t be topped

2.Street Chase – Kingdom – Love the feeling of danger

3.Warehouse Chase – Kingdom – Interesting location & camera angles.

4.Motorcycle Chase – Crusade – Jousting and modern-day dirt bikes kick it down a notch. Cool Beemer sidecar rig though.

5.Jungle Chase – Kingdom – Goes on too long. Either take the skull from her or run her off the road and go get the skull out of the wreckage.

6.Tank Chase – Crusade – Gets too silly

7.Mine Cart Chase – Temple – Completely ridiculous

Good point Dewy9, the boulder chase was brilliant. I saw it when I was 13 on the big screen and I remember almost standing up to yell at Indy to hurry the hell up! But, like so many others, for me the truck scene is by far the best of the chases. So far 36 people have voted for the truck chase and the movie was set in 1936! Coincidence or not?!!!

Not sure how I would rank them, but the Raiders truck chase is still the best, followed closely by the tank chase in Last Crusade.

Alright.

My favorite chase in any Indy movie is the Jungle Chase.

No other scene in KotCS makes me smile so much. When Indy and Marion are bickering even after Dovchenko attempts to gag Marion, "Not yet!" *kick* *kick* *kick* *kick* then Indy crawling through the cloth "They weren't you." and that's just the first minute! Indy leaping from car to car, kicking major ass, with the Raider's March playing, then the sword fight, and then the Last Crusade-esque (IMO) cliff-bumping. One of my favorite shots in any Indy film, possibly top 3 favorite shots, is when the Commies are shooting at Indy's ride through the foilage, and when the parallel roads meet again, Indy leaps over. And I love how Ox is smiling when they almost go over the edge. Indy's interaction with Mutt: "Whoa.." "Whoa... WHOA!!!" Brilliant stuff; vintage.

My second favorite is also from Crystal Skull: the Area 51 scene.

But you guys already pointed out all the great stuff about this scene, and I'm a little tired, so no elaboration.

Cheers.

Why is the warehouse chase so low, LastCrusader?

I mean, totally nothin wrong with that. It just seems very different from everyone else's list. So I'm curious.

I love all the Indiana Jones chases, and that includes Indy 4s, and the warehouse chase too. The problem with that one though is that it's too short. All the other chases in the Indy films are exactly as long as they should be. When they're over you really have the feeling that you had a great build-up to an amazing climax. The Warehouse chase consists of awesome shots, but there is no build up at all. Maybe if they edited it differently would have loved it as much as all the others, because I think they could've stretched the actual chase bits in stead of having one climax after the other without any real chasing. The scene is awesome but it doesn't feel complete to me, there are a few parts missing.

I'm actually gonna have to agree. Upon third and fourth viewings, it does appear to be rather short (but I still feel its an excellent adrenaline rush!)

Yeah now that you mention it, I totally agree. I -love- that scene, but I do wish it was a little longer.

I'd have to rank them as follows:
  1. The Truck Chase from Raiders-One of the best chases in film history...period!

  2. The Tank Chase from LC-I originally would have put the Mine Car chase from TOD ahead of this one, but the sense of urgency and peril coupled with the fact the Henry. Sr's and Marcus' lives were on the line, trumps it!

  3. The Mine Car Chase from TOD-Awesome fun, and it still holds up today! It's like a roller coaster ride through hell!

  4. The Warehouse Chase from KOTCS-One of the best parts of this film!

  5. The Motorcycle Chase from LC-Short but fun!

  6. The Boat Chase in Venice from LC-Not included on the original list, but more fun then the last two in my opinion.

  7. The Jungle Chase from KOTCS-Cool at times, but felt like too much of a repeat of what we've seen before!

  8. The Motorcycle Chase through the Campus from KOTCS-Fun but tired, and a repeat of better chases from earlier films!

  9. The Chase through the streets of Hong Kong from TOD-Funny, but not much of a chase!

I love that truck chase in Raiders, from when it begins and to it ends it just holds you at the edge of your seat. I remember seeing that for the first time and just being amazed.

I enjoy all the chases just about the same, they become something you look forward to watchiong in each movie. my favorite would be the jungle chase, closely folloed by the tank chase and truck chase. I wouldn't nessecarily count the Warehouse escape as a chase and more like an action sequence or opening adventure (which is what it is).

Yeah, they didn't just show the doors open or the truck shake and the bad guys jump out. In Raiders you were in it and saw the fight,you weren't at the kiddie table missing the action.
