Customer Reviews

Just two people driving around in a car.
Ratika Tyagi
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.

I think the bad guy actually represents the people who made this movie because he tells Ethan "You've helped me make a lot of money."

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!

Lousy script and too predictable. Ending was disappointing as well. Don't waste your time! Oh, and just because an actress is adored on the Disney Channel doesn't mean people want to see her in an action movie!

Canadian director Courtney Solomon steers this `script' by Sean Finnegan and Gregg Maxwell Parker and the result is a relentless 90 minutes car chase move, a little on the over used side. Former race car driver Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) is pitted against the clock as he commandeers a custom Shelby Super Snake Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner `The Kid' (Selena Gomez) on a high-speed adventure at the command of a mysterious villain called The Voice (Jon Voight) on a race against time to save the life of his kidnapped wife Leanne (Rebecca Budig). The only thing that distinguishes the story from the legions of stories out of the same can is the `The Kid' knowledge of computers and hacking and GPS manipulation - throws an undated light on an old worn out story. Hawke is fine as the ever panicked-desperate-to-get-his-wife-back-obedient-to-the-Voice guy, Selena Gomez pulls off her rasty mouthed role well and all we see of Jon Voight is his mouth until the end. The final few minutes (the reason behind the whole movie) are rather silly. Grady Harp, April 14

A decently enjoyable flick from Dark Castle Entertainment. A production company whose products swing from pretty dang good to yeesh - 'Getaway' falls somewhere in between.

Tells the story of Brent Magna, former NASCAR driver whose life hasn't gone right since a horrific crash. Unable to assimilate his near-death experience, he fell off the circuit. Washed out and broke, he turned his only marketable skill toward criminal enterprise. Likely to end up in prison, he's on the downward slope of self-destruction.

Then he meets Leanne. Love returns focus into his life. Back on the straight-n-arrow, they're going to make it work.

Until his wife is brutally abducted.

The Voice calls him with simple instructions. Do what he says, when he says it - and she lives. Disobey or fail - she dies. Of course he agrees to do whatever it takes to get her back.

His first mission - steal a very special car.

You already know the story from there.

The screenplay is routine, the drama well-worn contrivance. But the set action pieces were really, really fun as we get to see a Shelby Super Snake Mustang tear ass through Sofia, Bulgaria. Explosions and insane road skills abound.

Despite the flat simplicity of the story, I'm always surprised that we, the audience, have to once again confront that eternal movie pitfall: Internal Story Logic. Or lack thereof.

Several salient points that were critical to really enjoying this film stood out as distracting plot holes. Holes that viewers have to gloss over in order for the story to continue. Otherwise, you can get stuck pondering the ridiculousness of the script.

***Spoiler Warning***

Plot Problem No.

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.
