Another film I heard about at this year's BAFTAs. It is a a modern day version of "High Noon". Not for the squeamish. Music's good too.

Firstly why I gave this film a 4 star rating was the super cool performance of ryan gosling.His laid back but convincing performance here,made the movie worth watching.Driving as a getaway driver,doing bit part stunt work,while working as a mecanic ,dreaming of racing cars for a living one day ,it was the underworld conection that would change everything.He had formed a strong friendship with a women and her boy living in the same building,as thier freindship seemed to be growing into something stronger,her partner was released from prison but owed a big debt to the mob.Here is where the film took a compleate turn.The guy needed a getaway driver for a robbery that was a disarster in waiting.enter the mob and the start of some rather graphic violence that put me off the film somewhat.As the film reached a predictable ending it did leave the door open for maybe a "drive2"not a bad movie thanks to mr gosling,but not one for those to watch if on the squemish side,quite a belivable story never the less,about someones life being thrown into disaray trying to do somebody a good turn so to speak.

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.

A different sort of film, with the driver theme to it but it grew on me, very gory at times which was good and a great story. buy it

Great film will surely be a classic. Ryan doesn't say much but then he delivers the punchline by other methods.......Superb
