Bad ass film.
Firstly, huge fan of the director. He revamped the gangster genre, with his Pusher trilogy. Made the insane Herzog-esque sci-fi (Refn's words, not mine) trip out called Valhalla Rising. And Tom Hardy, pre-Bane, is incredible in his Bronson biopic. Basically being the l'enfant terrible of Euro indie cinema, he finally accepts the siren's call of Hollywood. Ryan Gosling hand picks Refn to direct Drive, and we get something similar to Polanski's migration to US, to make Chinatown. Drive is your average hardboiled revenge/heist yarn. H-Wood's been making these flicks for years, whether it was Lee Marvin with Point Blank, or Steve McQueen with Bullit. Refn brings a sharp edge, capturing the neon glow of night scenes in LA, ala Michael Mann (soundtrack and credit sequence also paying homage. Gosling quietly broods, while Carey Mulligan is vulnerable, yet not your damsel in distress. Mr. Inside Llewyn Davis plays her ex-con husband. Hellboy's pretty excellent, along with Walter White. But the highlight of the film is the casting of famed comedian Albert Brooks as the villain. A merciless and chilling gangster, that steals every scene he's in. Fast and Furious this is not.

Yuck! A silly, sinister, pointlessly gory and violent movie. It started out OK, promising even, then it went sour and left me and my husband wondering why we wasted any time on it at all. No real plot to speak of, no insight into why this (at first) seemingly quiet and centered main character suddenly turns gruesomely violent (i.e.: bashing an already dead opponent's face in with his foot, until that head entirely loses its third dimension). It also does not explain why the director chose to show each horribly violent sequence in extended, disgusting full vivid detail. If that's your bag, you're gonna love this film. For me... again - Yuck!
