Shut up and drive.,
This review is from: Drive [Blu-ray] (2011) (Blu-ray)This is nothing like a Fast And Furious or Transporter movie so anybody expecting that will be very dissapointed. Drive is a modern film noir about a hollywood stuntman with no name who also acts as a getaway driver for the mob. Ryan Gosling is one of the hottest actors around at the moment and it's very easy to see why here, with a performance that echoes Steve Mc.Queen especially when he's behnd the wheel. Albert Brooks, perhaps best known as the father in Finding Nemo is very menacing as a mob boss as is Ron Perlman as his henchman and there's solid support from Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston and Carey Mulligan. It's a very brutal film with some scenes not for the sqeemmish. A very well shot film and with some excellent driving scenes and car chases, this is also a very intelligent film with a lot of heart too. Absolutely brilliant.

'Albert Brooks, perhaps best known as the father in Finding Nemo' - this is a joke, right? The thought that it might not be makes me a little sqeemmish - still, mental sexist bloke liked your review.
