Like 'MOVIE ADDICT' said in his review DO NOT expect ''mainstream'' WHAM-BAMM hollywood carnage when watchin DRIVE!!! It IS a slow building, & at times COMPLEX crime story but also is a gorgous, mean, moody & at exsploively violent movie, A movie dat takes GREAT pride in substance over style & a movie dat deserves a 2nd watch also.

  Marmite of a film

| | See all Wattybuckan's reviews (7)

I cant quite work this film out, bit like ballroom dancing, slow slow quick quick slow. At first, so slow it makes you wonder why your sitting watching it, then with no real warning it is insanely violent to a point where you have to look round to see if you dozed off and have woken in a different film.... then slow again... then bang its bonkers again. Its kitch, its smooth, its almost corny but it works, and I would watch it again.. but suspect that I will be left asking the same questions.

Very cool movie and soundtrack. Empire Magazine voted it the best film of 2011. Along with warrior I would agree. Also pre order that, you won't be let down.

Drive was the best thing I saw in Cannes in 2011 and, in fact, the most powerful and memorable film I've seen for very very long time! Refn's directing style is impressively skillful and uncompromising, but its the raw power of Gosling's quiet performance that steals the show.
Not to be missed!!

  NOT FOR THOSE WHO WANT FAST & FURIOUSE THRILLS AND SPILLS!

| | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)

As my title warns don't expect all action car carnage, because you'll come away very disappointed. Drive is a neon drenched thriller shot in the style of early Michael Mann or Tony Scott films. It even has a great 80's feel electro pop soundtrack that makes the whole film feel like it belongs in decades gone, where words were minimal and and it was a mans world.
The film starts with a very tense hide and seek game with the police as Ryan Goslin's character helps crooks escape the law by his exceptional driving skills and his cool head, but by day he is a stunt driver. The film then slows down to a crawl as characters build and back stories build, until the film gets back into gear with some breath taking drops of violence and car carnage.
I'm not going to beat around the bush as this filn will be loved as much as it's loathed, but I found this retro fitted no frills thriller a refreshing change to the GCI and cartoon action of other motorheaded films.
Drive has cult status written all over it.
See if you like......
