Point Break - thru the houses and yards
Bullitt (not talking bout the car chase,but the foot chase thru the hospital)
Outland -thru the space station (same director as Bullitt, I think)
District 13 ... the star of this originated the urban athletic sport used by Bond's chase victim in Casino Royale

Another vote for French Connection -- probably the best chase scene ever.

Diva (a guy on a moped being chased by a man on foot, both going up a down escalator -- really cool!)

Perhaps one of the highest regarded car chase scenes in recent history is in the Bourne Identity. Actually all of the Bourne movies provide egde of your seat, realistic car chase scenes.

Another is of course...The Chase with Charlie Sheen:)

Jay

OOOPS, foot chase scenes I see!

Either way, Bourne provides astonishing real life scenes in that category too:)

How about the chase with the huge crane vs the fire engine in Terminator 3? All the more impressive since most of it was real instead of CGI...

And of course the big chase at the end of The Road Warrior with the gasoline tanker.

Ah, but those were not foot chases though... think I'll have to edit the title of this thread to reflect the intentions of the original poster.

Ha... you're right! Sorry for not reading the original post more carefully...

The Third Man has a good chase scene on foot, ending in the sewers of Vienna.

Raising Arizona!

the opening scene of Trainspotting (reprised later in the film) has some good elements but in is rather fragmented.

Bullitt was directed by Peter Yates.
Outland by Peter Hyams.
