A silly, superfluous movie that goes for broke with style over substances and for the most part delivers thanks to some genuinely inspired driving sequences and a great musical score by the always excellent Cliff Martinez. The film's biggest flaw might be that it's too front-loaded. The opening scene is arguably the best one and it promises a level of excitement that the film doesn't sustain which may utlimately leave the viewer with a sense that the film is slightly less than the sum of its parts.

If you want to watch a guy and a girl stare at eachother and then smile - this is the movie for you. In the end everyone who has seen him dies, so why does he keep driving while bleeding to death. and take the money sheeesh! if you want the girl go for her, dont be weird and silent. I watched the whole movie, If i were you i'd pass on this one.

Really not worth your time. Ryan O'Neal did a similar film back in the 70's. Gosling has little to say, and delivers his lines as if loaded with depressants. The other actors have little to do, and are forgettable. Albert Brooks as a gangster has some nice moments.

I don't really know if I liked this movie or not. I'll need to think about it. It was kinda dragged out and a little boring at times. There wasn't much talking, or action. Just a few very violent scenes. Don't know what to think of it.

This film has some of the most graphic violence outside of the slasher genre. Be prepared. I loved Carey Mulligan, and the film has some great character actors in supporting roles. I'm still not sure if I liked it or not.

Good movie if you are into action packed movies. Not lots to think about, but that just adds to the appeal. Kept me awake the whole time.

This was different. Sort of like a Clint Eastwood spagetti western, with a car. Ryan Gosling was the strong silent type who kicked ass and looked good doing it. Loved it. very understated, with tension and feeling and an ending that begs for a sequel.

Just a bad movie. If you have to waste 2 hours of your life, dont let it be on this movie.

Bearded Redneck: You're Shannon's buddy right? We met last year. You drove me and my brother back from Palm Springs. We hired another wheelman. I spent six months in jail. My brother, he got himself killed. I got this sweet job coming up. Driver: How 'bout this. You shut your mouth. Or I'll kick your teeth down your throat and I'll shut it for you. Bearded Redneck: Nice seein' you again.
