Jolie tops motorcycle movie poll

Angelina Jolie's action-packed motorcycle chase in 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider' has been named the best two-wheeled movie moment of all time, in a poll by biker fans.

The actress' bike chase in the 2001 hit computer game adaptation topped of a poll issued by UK bike insurers Bennetts - beating legendary actor Steve McQueen's iconic on-bike flight in 'The Great Escape'.

Tom Cruise's high-fuelled motorbike adventures in Top Gun was voted in third place, with special effect blockbusters 'The Matrix Reloaded' and 'Terminator 2' taking the fourth and fifth places respectively.

Jack Nicholson and Dennis Hopper's cult 1969 road movie 'Easy Rider '- which depicts the life of a group of doomed bikers - was snubbed by film fans, failing to make the poll's top five.
