5 Movie Drivers that are Cool as Hell

Going through Hollywood’s entire collection of car movies in hopes of finding the top 5 movie drivers is not the easiest job in the world. Enumerating could be easy, but finding the best of the list is similar to choosing the sexiest Victoria’s Secret model – not exactly painful research, but it is one hell of a work.

A select few will consider that the car chase is the deciding factor, while yet a further class is only satisfied when the director has selected a suitable vehicle for the character driving, regardless of the movie plot. But since our article title only plays the variable of ‘movie drivers’, we will enter the debate and eventually agree to disagree with our picks for the top five coolest drivers to ever grace the silver screen.

Sandra Bullock in Speed

5) Speed – Sandra Bullock

Who said that females can’t drive? Well in this movie, Sandra Bullock earns a spot in being one of the top five movie drivers that are as cool as hell. Driving a city bus in the streets of Los Angeles with a bomb attached to it is one of the most badass things a girl can do, and yes, she couldn’t go below 50mph if she doesn’t want the bus to go ‘Boom!’

Kurt Russel in Death Proof

4) Death Proof – Kurt Russell

Two separate sets of voluptuous women are stalked at different times by a scarred stuntman who uses his “death proof” cars to execute his murderous plans. The general movie plot has overqualified itself and earns number four on the list. Kurt Russell has undeniably played a great role as a sadistic stuntman who kills girls in his death proof stunt car. “Vroom, Vroom!”

Paul Walker in 2 Fast 2 Furious

3) 2 Fast 2 Furious – Paul Walker

Even in other Fast and Furious movies, Paul Walker never fails to quench our desire for car chases, drifts and badass driving. Transporting a shipment of ‘dirty’ money for shady Miami-based, import-export dealer Carter Verone, Paul Walker drives his way to arrive at number three on our list of cool movie drivers.

Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver

2) Taxi Driver – Robert De Niro

Arguably one of the most brilliant films ever produced is “Taxi Driver” starring Robert De Niro as an alienated insomniac ex-marine. He is no longer able to trust or confide in those around him and feels estranged from what he sees as the sleaze filled streets of America. Featuring the immortal “You talkin’ to me” line, this cool as hell driver grabs number two on our list.

Ryan Gosling in Drive

1) Drive – Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling plays an inexplicable man who has multiple jobs as a garage mechanic, a Hollywood stuntman, and a getaway driver. The film follows him as he tries to escape his shady past when he discovers that he has fallen for his neighbor who is as subdued as he is. Gosling gets to be the coolest badass driver in our top five picks. Driving in his 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu, Gosling gets to be the hero that gets more than he bargained for when he meets the man who is married to the woman he loves.
