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.
Denmark's Nicolas Winding Refn makes an electrifying return to Hollywood filmmaking with this 1980s-style noir, right down to the synth score and neon-pink credits (he released his American debut, Fear X, in 2003). Ryan Gosling puts his implacable quality to good use as an L.A. stunt driver whose world crumbles when he falls for the wrong woman (Carey Mulligan). Irene is hardly a femme fatale, but her incarcerated husband, Standard (Oscar Isaac), is another story. When her car breaks down, Driver recommends the auto shop where he works with Shannon (Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston). The two start spending time together, but then Standard returns from prison. Driver keeps his distance until he discovers that Standard owes protection money. If he doesn't pay up, Irene and their son will suffer, so Driver offers to handle the wheel during a heist, a job with which he has more than a little experience, as the riveting opening sequence proves. While they plan their score with Blanche (Mad Men's Christina Hendricks), Shannon makes a deal with a couple of gangsters (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman), but when the plans collide: all hell breaks loose. In adapting James Sallis's novel, Refn builds to a bittersweet denouement, though the bursts of bloodshed will test even the hardiest of viewers. At its best, though, Drive is every bit as gripping as Reagan-era crime dramas like To Live and Die in L.A. and Thief. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
It's a neo-noir western with a dash of the 1980's for good measure. Action scenes are beautifully composed and punctuate long stretches of quiet, thoughtful character development. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Patrick
one of the best movies I've ever seen. The people that don't "get it" are really dense. Don't let those reviews deter you from watching this masterpiece.Published 15 days ago by nilbog74
This movie is pure garbage. It's overly artistic, and extremely slow. It is pure torture to watch. A waste of money and time. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Netherlife
Wow! I just watched this movie and I absolutely loved it. I have really come to appreciate Nicholas Winding Refn as a director. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Mike P.

|Please tell me that is not the final cover art!?||
Agreed, for a movie that has such an easily identifiable style baked right into the celluloid (late 70s, early 80s neon-drenched beauty), for them to make such a slapdash Photoshop job is criminal. I'm hoping that the cover art is a placeholder, but I fear it's not.

I am curious about this as well. I heard the only major cut was more gore from the elevator scene.
