Drive is a great ride

on 4/29/2012

"Drive" is one of those rare gems that is pretty much indescribable. It's hard to identify what type of film this is. It isn't really an action film or a drama. What I can determine is that it's a character driven film that is unlike anything else that has been released. Read More

Solid entertaining movie

on 1/22/2014

Solid entertaining movie, but nothing earth shattering here. Good action. Ryan Gosling's character is too odd for me connect with so it left something to be desired there. I am sure the writers wanted him to be that odd but it was just creepy. Read More

Product Overview

Drive (2011) - Blu-ray/UltraViolet


Academy Award® nominees Ryan Gosling(Best Actor, Half Nelson, 2006) and Carey Mulligan (Best Actress, An Education, 2009) headline the critically acclaimed, unique action thrill ride Drive, debuting on Blu-ray™ with UltraViolet™, DVD and Digital January 31st from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The cast also includes Emmy Award® winner Bryan Cranston (TV’s “Breaking Bad”), Oscar® nominee Albert Brooks (Best Supporting Actor, Broadcast News, 1987), Ron Perlman (Hellboy, TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), and Christina Hendricks (TV’s “Mad Men”) in the story of a Hollywood stuntman (Gosling) who moonlights as a getaway driver for criminals.

Ryan Gosling stars as a Hollywood stunt driver for movies by day and moonlights as a wheelman for criminals by night. Though a loner by nature, “Driver” can’t help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband. After a heist goes wrong, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman). Soon he realizes the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash and is forced to shift gears and go on the offense.

Editors Note
Note A lone-wolf Hollywood stunt driver (Ryan Gosling) moonlights as a freelance getaway wheelman, and he finds his solitary existence taking on new meaning after befriending Irene (Carey Mulligan), the lonely wife of convicted felon Standard (Oscar Isaac), and her young son Benicio (Kaden Leos). When Standard gets released from prison and is strong-armed into committing a bold daytime robbery, the Driver offers his services in an effort to help the repentant ex-con cut his ties to the criminal underworld. Things get complicated, however, when the robbery goes unexpectedly awry, and the Driver just barely manages to escape alive. When the take from the job proves to be stratospherically higher than the Driver was led to believe, it quickly becomes apparent that they were set up. Later, thugs threaten to kill Irene and Benicio, and all evidence points to transplanted New York crime boss Bernie Rose (Albert Brooks) and his hot-headed partner Nino (Ron Perlman) as the masterminds. As the Driver attempts to turn the tables on them, it becomes clear that the chain of command goes much higher than he could have ever anticipated.
Reviews
Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "DRIVE dynamically merges a traffic film noir plot with a cool retro look, evoking '60s classics like POINT BLANK and BULLITT." 06/18/2011
Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Here is a move with respect for writing, acting and craft. It has respect for knowledgeable moviegoers." 09/14/2011
USA Today "The look is artfully stylized, influenced by classic film noir; the mood is dark; the performances nuanced; and the story unnervingly exciting." 09/16/2011
Wall Street Journal "[G]osling and this powerful film, which is ultimately about a moment of grace, deserve each other. He's the medium's most graceful minimalist." 09/16/2011
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t is Gosling, along with Refn's meticulous, dynamic direction, that is the star of the show..." 10/01/2011
Rolling Stone 4 stars out of 4 -- "Gosling is dynamite....Pure cinema, a grenade of image and sound ready to blow." 09/15/2011
Entertainment Weekly "DRIVE revels in sensory detail; it's a visually and aurally edgy Euro-influenced American genre movie about the coolness of noir-influenced American genre movies about the coolness of driving..." -- Grade: B 09/23/2011
Sight and Sound "[W]ith well-staged, attention-grabbing chase sequences, a cool-for-cats central performance from Ryan Gosling...atmospheric cinematography by Newton Thomas Sigel, and a tension-enhancing use of music and sound design..." 10/01/2011
Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "DRIVE is a welcome throwback to a sub-genre of stripped-down, existential action movies familiar from the late '70s and early '80s..." 10/05/2011
Washington Post 4 stars out of 4 -- "Ryan Gosling delivers a slow, white-hot burn of a performance in DRIVE, a nervy, understated ode to one of Hollywood's most cherished archetypes, the sad-eyed man of few words." 09/16/2011
