Becky and I went to see the new movie Drive last night at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at Drive, which is a good site to check for show times, describes the movie as follows:
“A Hollywood stuntman (Ryan Gosling) who moonlights as a getaway driver for thieves finds that a price has been put on his head after a failed robbery.“
Drive is one of the worst movies we’ve seen in a long time. What’s crazy is that the critics said it was “Extraordinary”, really? All we can figure is because Albert Brooks is playing a bad guy, which is pretty unbelievable in itself, and Ryan Gosling is probably going to get “Sexiest Man Alive” on People Magazine this year. Other than that we can’t figure out what they could possibly like about this film?
The name Drive you would think there would be some incredible driving, but there’s not much driving in this movie. What there is though is dialogue like a 1970’s movie, music like a 1980’s movie and more graphic violence than a Quentin Tarantino flick. Some of the violence in this movie is downright disturbing, like when the main character kicks the head in of a thug, until his head is no longer there. It was demented.
The only good thing about this movie was the Preview. As one woman said coming out of the film, “There is more dialogue in a Dr. Seuss book than that movie.”. The bottom line is that this movie sucked in a big way. Drive this movie off a cliff and “Don’t Bother”.
