Editorial Reviews

The chase is on in this modern spin on the pulse-pounding action thriller. Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke plays a burned-out race car driver thrust into a perilous mission behind the wheel after his wife is kidnapped. Forced to follow the orders of an unseen, mysterious assailant (Academy Award winner Jon Voight) who is monitoring his every move, the driver must rely on a young hacker (Selena Gomez) in this high-octane thriller from Joel Silver's Dark Castle Entertainment.

Format:DVD
I didn't have high hopes for this film. I got to see it for free, and it was still overpriced.

The storyline is asinine at best. Generic badass gets his wife kidnapped by generic anonymous white coller and shenanigans ensue. The only insight you get into the bad guy's motives is pathetic. The movie heavily implies that there's some higher operation going on in the movie, but nothing is conveyed to the viewer. The backstory for both the main characters are half-assed, and sappy exposition plugs are all they story you get.

Lots of people complain that too many people died in Man of Steel, and therefor Superman was a much less valiant hero. Superman ain't got nothing on this guy. 1/2 way into the movie, and I had lost track of how many innocents this guy had injured, and how many cops he had killed. For one damsel in distress? It's absurd. Normally this isn't a big deal, but it is when you're trying to connect with a character. In a movie like this, you want to root for the protagonist. You want him to find his wife. 30m minutes in, and I'm hoping the psychopath gets gunned down by the police. Speaking of characters...

The entire emotional repertoire of this movie can be summed up with "broody, whiny, and intese". While the Ethan Hawke's constant intense and tormented attitude gets annoying, it's nothing compared to Selina Gomez's. "The Kid" is possibly the worst supporting character ever to appear in modern cinema. Nonstop whining, nonstop pouting, nonstop indifference, and nonstop annoyance. This is all magnified when you throw in an absolutely terrible performance by an absolutely terrible musician. The antagonist was equally dull, not once deviating from the stereotypical cold, superior evil entity.

The ending of the movie was blatant sequel fuel. I can only hope that the next one is more appropriately named "Stayaway".

1.0 out of 5 stars Nonsensical, In-cohesive, Repetitive and Bland April 18, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Normally when asked to sum up a movie with three-to-five words a person would assume to hear adjectives such as "brilliant" or "engaging" amongst other positive words commonly associated with establishing the fact that the film was worth watching. However, in the case of the movie "Getaway", the best words to describe the film are nonsensical, in-cohesive, repetitive and bland. In fact, the movie contains the perfect word to describe what the audience should do as soon as the film begins, they should "Getaway".....quickly.

The film script in "Getaway" makes Michael Bay look like Alfred Hitchcock. The plot is severely lacking, to the point where I even found myself question whether or not there was a plot at all. The movie consists of one giant car chase scene.....that's it. Throughout the entire film the viewer never gets much background information as to who the villain is, what his motives are or what he even looks like. Ethan Hawke's character is one dimensional and has no character development at all. The audience doesn't know who he is or why his wife was kidnapped or how he ended up in the Mustang to begin with. Instead, the movie begins with all of this already occurring prior to the opening credits and the viewer is greeted with a speeding Mustang out of nowhere.

The pace is consistent......it's one dimensional, so there's nowhere else for it to go. "Getaway" consists of a man on the protagonist to crash into vehicles, to drive through parks, and to run from police within a given time limit. That's pretty much the entire film except the director also added Selena Gomez to the mix, whose character adds nothing to the film either.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant awesome fun!!!!!! December 14, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
C'mon guys! What were you expecting?! With a title like Getaway you should have known what you were letting yourselves in for! I played it loud and loved every minute! It's an adrenalin rush from start to finish and the pace barely lets up! You want fast car chases, total carnage, shootouts and massive explosions all held together by a thrilling albeit not an original story then buy this film! I was thoroughly entertained and will be watching it again and again!

1.0 out of 5 stars Take title advice: GETAWAY! January 2, 2014
Format:DVD
This is a bad movie and I think those that made knew it so they didn't change the title. Take their advice. Selena Gomez must have known because her character doesn't even have a name. The subtitles attribute her dialogue to the "The Kid".

Oh, and her dialogue consists mostly of "Look Out!" You see this is literally and figuratively a "car wreck" of a movie. A guy's wife is kidnapped and he must drive for an hour and a half wrecking into things in France (Paris I think) or the bad guy on the phone will kill his wife.

The co-stars are Ethan Hawke's right hand, which he uses to shift the manual transmission, and his right foot, which is used to press on the accelerator. Each of these body parts receives substantial camera shots to help reinforce the idea that Hawke is really driving fast. Mix in some master sound effects - revving engine and honking horns - and you've got about three quarters of the movie.

Thank goodness the car is indestructible or the movie would end in 12 minutes. Hawke is able to slam into cars, boxes, street carts, trash cans, drive down stairs (couple of times), over train tracks, through parks, down alleys, through parking garages, weave in and out of traffic all while being chased by countless police cars. To add to the excitement and intensity, Selena's character yells "look out" and the camera flashes to Hawke's foot and hand. Oh, let's not forget screeching, burning rubber to further drive up the realism. Nothing stops this car. Bullets, nope. Crashes, nope, Explosions, nope. Oh, it gets multiple bullet holes but luckily none of the bullets hit the windows, lights, or tires. Good thing because if the car stops, the wife dies.

Have to share this.
