In movies with elaborate dance sequences, it often takes the actors months of work with choreographers to get the moves down. Without a doubt, dancing is hard. Now imagine that dancing isn't with people in a small room, but rather, with extremely fast and expensive cars driving on momentarily-closed off public roads surrounded by even more expensive infrastructure. This alone makes the almost-impossible logistical consideration of car chases one of the greatest art forms ever created.
