Watched this hesitantly, don't really care too much for Ryan Gosling and didn't know much about this flick..and though it starts out pretty standard, by the climax I didn't even want to blink..dying to know what happens!!! I won't lie, the plot is pretty standard and has been done before, but still was intrigued to get to the finale! Soundtrack has an "80s" vibe that I really, really liked (gotta look for it..hopefully there is one). High recommend!!!

A slow-burning explosion. Review by Jonathan Spear.
Drive - Rated R - 5/5 - See!
It starts off high-octane, with one of the most realistic and suspenseful car chases I've seen in a while. Then the plotting relaxes into a subtle, cool, calm and collected flow. Gosling acts more with his eyes and his body language than with his words, and the supporting cast is wonderfully wicked. It slowly builds, and builds until you are in a whirlwind of Noir mystery and violence that is as satisfying as it gets. If you want a slick, modern noir about a nameless get-away driver, who is as charming as all get out, rent or purchase this film. Easily one of the best of 2011.

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!
