Best "Chase" Movies

What I mean by chase, I mean The Fugitive, Minority Report, with the protagonist on the run. At the moment, those happen to be the only two I can think of, so any suggestions/additions to the sub genre?

I really like "The Fugitive" and "The Chase" was good too.

Others I can think of:

U.S. Marshals (of course)
Catch Me If You Can

Now we're talking!

The 70s was the chase decade for movies. Of the above mentioned, my favorite is Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry and would like to add a little-known movie called Moonrunners to that list (it led to a TV spin-off known as the Dukes of Hazzard) as well as one of the finest chase movies ever filmed, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Geofferson,
DMCL came up in a thread on another forum just yesterday or the day before.
i agree, the movie kicks righteous ass all over so much better known more recent films in this genre.
Fox's inability to see the tremendous market out there for it (including a generation weened on tarrentino films that would probably eat it up as well) is head scratching and frustrating.

Oh, you didn't mean Best Chase Movie in the same way as Best Deniro Movie?
