"Basically the same as what another person said - if you already have the other "Bullitt" DVD, you already have the main feature of this rehashed, slapped-together piece of "work." It's obvious the cornballs who made these "Making of" features are just looking for a quick buck, and well, I guess they made a few bucks on us suckers who took the bait. They probably thought, "Hey! Lets take advantage of those idiots who love old car movies and make a few bucks! We'll just recycle some available stuff, throw in some trailers from existing DVDs and produce some low-budget crap that people will dish out a few bucks for!" Save yourself the trouble and take my word -- don't waste your time and money on this. From the first few seconds of the intro (some kid with a hangover wearing a cheap tux blabbing about McQueen), then into the main "feature," then the rest are trailers from "Mad Max," "Magnum Force," "Vanishing Point," etc, etc, - just filler stuff. And the picture quality is awful. Enough said? Just buy the regular "Bullitt" DVD instead if you already don't own it."
Disappointing DVD

"Anyone who owns the Bullitt video, DVD or 30th Anniversary Warner Brothers DVD SHOULD NOT BUY THIS DVD since "The Making of Bullitt" appears on the abovementioned versions under the title of "Steve McQueen: A committment to Reality." This new "The Making of Bullitt" DVD contains a cheesy, general intro from some fellow in a suit and the original Bullitt theatrical trailer (also on the video and DVDs). There are also two biographical documentaries on the DVD, one about McQueen and one about Jacqueline Bisset, both thrown together with a minimal voice over and very very very little effort into the writing. It sounded as if the narrator got the info from the inside of a book cover. These biographies show lenghtly (and poorly copied) clips from their movies and trailers. Thats it. The same goes for the "Car MOvies" extras. Again, just clips from various movies and their trailers. This whole DVD looked as if some high school student had to throw together some much needed quick cash."
Don't Bite The Bullitt

"Beware. This is little short of false advertising. A short (15 mins?) publicity film dating from the film's release year, 1969, entitled "Steve McQueen: A Commitment to Reality", which has some McQueen commentary, as well as some commentary by director Peter Yates, with behind-the-scenes footage, is the only thing on this DVD that qualifies as "The Making of "Bullitt'". Thereafter there is a dated generic filmography of McQueen, as well as one of his "Bullitt" co-star, Jacqueline Bisset. Then there are trailers for some films that feature car chases (!) -- "Duel", "Vanishing Point", "The Driver", "Magnum Force" and "Mad Max". And that, my friends, is it! About the only thing I learned from this DVD is that Bisset's film "Secrets" was finally released because everybody liked the way she looked in a wet T-shirt in "The Deep". It appears that she is responsible for that modern phenomenon, the Wet T-Shirt Competition. Needless to say, this is not the sort of thing that one should learn from a DVD entitled "The Making of "Bullitt"".

You have got to be kidding me...

"I can't believe anyone on the planet would put this out on DVD. The case is actually a higher quality product. It opens and closes, it holds a DVD. (You might want to throw away the one that came in it, and use it to store something more valuable, like a Gary Coleman coaster.) The DVD itself is unmitigated garbage. It has nothing to do with the Making of Bullitt, it is a couple of bad biographies, and a short film about McQueen which you can get elsewhere. Plus, to top it all off it is "hosted" by some poor idiot who looks as though he was captured at the end of a cattle prod and made to dance in a lousy suit for his tormentors. (Who the hell is this guy? Sean McLaughlin? Never heard of him. Probably never will again. He does resemble the guy from Sex and the City, who was also in the old 80's version of Dune, and HIS name is Kyle McLaughlin. Maybe he is his lesser brother. If he is, then Kyle might want to help him with a DECENT walk on part before this disc makes him the Frank Stallone of the 21st century.) DO NOT BUY!"
