Review ;

 

Well this really wasn’t what I was expecting. I don’t know why I thought this movie would be different but I did. I expected almost a more adult version of The Transporter so I was expecting more violence and less of a story driven suspense film. Now saying that this film is still very good. It’s a slower paced thriller/action/suspense film. Ryan Gosling along with the rest of the cast play their role perfectly. The action when there is some is done tastyfully for the feel of the movie while still remaining quite brutal. The thing that I feel most people like about the movie is with how it flows you always are being held by suspense and left wondering what will happen next. Also this movie has by far one of the greatest soundtracks I’ve heard in a long time. It really has that 80’s feel to it. Overall I feel this movie is worth the view and maybe with another vfiew I’ll enjoy it a bit more.

 

Score :

 

7.5/10

  1. Oh my god was this movie horrible. Ryan Gosling trying to play some really cool, dark character that does not say much was enough to make me slam my head into a wall. Save your time watching this. If you want something more exciting and entertaining then go watch paint dry! This movie sucked

  2. Thanks for the review. Drive definitely sounds like an interesting movie full of suspense, but I’m still not quite sure if I should check it out just yet. I’ve been reading many mixed reviews on it with some saying they loved it and others saying it was horrible, so I guess the only way of knowing is to see it myself. I definitely appreciate your opinions though. I noticed it was available online in my Blockbuster @Home package through my Dish subscription, so I think I’ll add it to my mailing queue and watch it in a few days. I heard you have to be in the mood for this sort of movie to sit down and actually enjoy it, so giving me a few days to get it in the mail sounds just about right. One of my co-workers at Dish recommended I check out an older movie starring Ryan Gosling called Stay; I thought it sounded quite interesting that I might want to add it to my queue also. Have you seen it? If so, what did you think of it?
