Drive

Drive

2011
Rated: R
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn
FilmDistrict

Drive the movieMan what a disappointment “Drive” was for me. In the spirit of full disclosure I’m an action movie junkie, I love them, which goes to the core of why I’m disappointed. It seemed to me from the trailers, at least, that the movie was going to be this nonstop driving craziness. I had pictured in my mind high-speed car scenes that would rival the chase scenes in “Ronin.” But the picture focused more on the complicated relationships in the Driver’s (Ryan Gosling) life.

I’m aware that the film did very well at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. But for me, I was left more that a little bored with the progression of the story. The movie was shot very well, the stunts and special effect were very good and the editing was really good too. However, I wasn’t a big fan of the score for the film.
