Thouroughly enjoyed this offering by winding refn,and some great acting by Ryan Gosling,a great choice for the lead.Some great car chases,but not over the top,also deserves some repeat viewing,highly recommended.

  Neon noir!

low budget, minimal, against the grain. Long, slow camera shots....music where speech should be. Looks that speak a page of the script....
Ultra violent, stunningly shot and beautifully acted.

I've watched it twice in two days....loved it.

Brilliant.

  Best film of 2011

| | See all snarfer's reviews (3)

You got to hand it to the academy - with 'Drive' failing to make one of the 9 best film nods for the 2012 Oscars, it just goes to show how reliably out of sync they are. 'War Horse!' Please! 'Drive' is an absolutely amazing film - a real throw-back with a retro vibe and pulse and one of the most memorable protagonists of the modern era. The soundtrack is amazing and by the end you will want a scorpion jacket. Honestly, great film!

  Great service..

I had this pre-ordered for about 3 weeks, maybe a month a and all I can say is the service I've recieved has been fantastic. My Blu-Ray has arrived a day early, so I'm able to watch my favourite film a day before it's release. What more could I want?

  Incredible.

The best film I have seen in recent memory, truly an amazing piece of cinema. You owe it to yourself to watch this film, it'd make a great valentines day present for your partner.

  This is Cult

| | See all Movies4U2011's reviews (5)

This is the movie of last year dont care what other's say. Everything just ooze's coolness you cant put a foot wrong with this movie. Ryan Gosling is the new James Dean/Steve Mc Queen just watch him burn the screen in coming years.

  I totally agree with MovieAddict & gspot80's reviews!

The above reviewers in my title have totally hit the nail on the head in there description of this bound to be cult classic. It's not for the action junky, but for a mean and moody thriller for the lovers of the late 70's and early 80's no frills action movies this is a fantastic retro fitted flash back. It almost got the full five stars from me, but due to the pace sag in the character build up it just mist out. It may not have the laws of physics defying action of Fast Five, But never the less Drive is one of those films that will live on to sit along Manhunter, Driver, Bullet and Vanishing Point as cult classic's long after The Fast and Furious have long since been forgotten.
Watch it, then re-watch it to fully take in this neon drenched elctro- pop classic.

  Unmissable. Unforgettable

| | See all beelzie14's reviews (29)

Incredible film with Gosling showing why he is one of film's hottest properties right now. His portrayal as a sensitive individual with a mean dark side is perfectly played. His awkward charm is juxtaposed by his visceral temper. Awesome!
Carey Mulligan brings a delicate awkwardness to her role which dovetails well with Gosling's quasi-pyscho nature. Although she is mainly in the background, her character is integral to the emotional development of Gosling's character.
This is up there with Pulp Fiction and Natural Born Killers in terms of cult classics. Unforgettable film which will stick in my memory for a long time.
Beautifully realised on blu-ray with great cinematography.

  One of the best films i saw in 2011!

| | See all spunky31's reviews (3)

Just seen this, and it didnt disappoint. like nothing i was expecting. A strong plot that had me and my GF glued all the way through. Good cinematic direction, flawless acting from gosling, and to top it off one hell of soundtrack to boot. (almost as good as daft punks OST of TRON LEGACY) highly recommend watching!

  Great movie.

Stylistic and well executed movie, not the ususal Hollywood film, the anti thesis of 2 fast 2 furious or whatever wich i hated.
