I am soooooooooo disappointed. Thought it would be in the same vein as "The Driver" or "Vanishing Point", but NO. Why call it "drive"? There was very little of that. From approx. 120 mins, MAYBE 15 mins were worth watching. And NO we did not find the elevator scene to be HOT. Do not waste your time or money on this.
I must say that despite the critics raving that this is one of the best movies of the year. I would say that it’s a good movie, cinematically done in a somewhat different way but I must say unless you love movies that start off slow only to pick up and then slow back down then Drive would be the movie for you. Ryan Gosling was menacing in the best way, his character was nothing short of a kind killer. I will say this….if you have a movie titled “Drive” and there isn’t either someone driving throughout the movie or some serious kick ass chase scene….you’ve misled the audience; and this left me missing the “Fast and Furious” franchise because plain and simple they did more driving in all four installments then Drive even thought of. The one scene with Ryan driving a Mustang trying to elude a Chrysler 300 (not sure if it was just the Hemi or an enhanced model); this scene could have been so much more but left you settling for what the director decided to leave in. Now, in the real world…..a Mustang would burn a Chrysler 300 (Hemi or not) but this wasn’t the case. I found myself sitting in the seat wanting to see the Chrysler catch Ryan…simply because the driver out drove the Mustang period. And, even when RG spun around and was driving in reverse….the Chrysler was eating him up. Don’t get me wrong….once the movie got going and the action kicked in….you were not disappointed. I think the sexiest scene in an action flick took place in this movie. The elevator scene was simple but HOT, right down to the crushed skull. Once the movie was over, I still felt like I was missing something from this movie going experience and I was….the action. But, overall I had a good time and enjoyed the action and acting of the entire cast.
TERRIBLE MOVIE, like the above comment where the movie was so broing he thought about walking out. Every 10 minutes you are thinking "man this movie really sucks" All the guy does is stare at people and won't change his dirty jacket. DO Not see this movie. Even if you rent it on dvd you would turn it off.
