Ethan Hawke is Brent Magna, a burned-out ex-racer who is forced to drive a souped-up Shelby Mustang and do whatever a stranger over the phone tells him to do. Brent’ s wife Leanne Magna (Rebecca Budig) has been kidnapped by this criminal, who orders him to drive recklessly in the streets of Sofia, Bulgaria. But for what purpose?

In fact, you really don’t care – as long as the film offers thrills and entertainment. “Getaway” doesn’t. Well, it strives to be fun with lots of car action, but unfortunately, except a few shots – there is a pretty impressive car chase sequence shot in a long take – most of the action is ruined by the editing that is too fast, and the story that doesn’t know where it is going. Selena Gomez’s annoying characters that gets involved does not help

Blandly directed by Courtney Solomon (“Dungeons & Dragons”), “Getaway” has some potential for being a silly but enjoyable action movie, potential that is not fully exploited. With so many borrowed ideas executed without creativity, “Getaway” becomes eventually dull. Personally I don’t hate this kind of fil, though it is obvious that with someone else as director it would be much more fun.

Thin (read: No) story. Endless string of car chases lose their thrill when so overdone. Empty characters with no compelling reason to care about them. So many movies, so little time. Don't waste your valuable non-renewable resource of time on this movie.

This must be where all those fake reviews are going!

I love Ethan Hawke, but his movie was outright ridiculous. No plot, no story, just horrible anyway you look at it. Gomez hacking on an iPad?? Please. It really doesn't deserve one star.

Don't want to expend the energy to warn you about this one, but I'll do it as a service and feel good about myself.

Lots of car driving stuff. Cop cars flipping and rolling and burning up. Often. Ethan Hawke's character is rather, uh, 1/2 dimensional. If I'd been him in the movie and had the chance to shoot Selena Gomez' character, I would have made the truly right decision and done it immediately, before the script (this had a script? Really?) change.

Lots of car driving stuff. Fast and often flipping over, flying through the air and crashing and sometimes flipping over and, oh yeah, cars burning up, too. Often. Ethan not doing much good acting, but the movie allows none to exist, so don't blame him.

Jon Voigt, actor. THE VOICE of this movie. Not very dislikable, because he doesn't give a crap about this stinker of a movie, either. I hate me for watching more than about 15 minutes of it. I watched the first 15 minutes of it and FF to the last 15 or so, thinking it would be less painful for me and my girlfriend to miss the "guts" of this movie, but the ending was lousy, too. Damn, I am in self-loathing mode right now and my girlfriend should be in loathing me mode for sharing with me the stupidity of this movie, but she is kind and deep and forgiving, so has let me off the hook. At least my sweetie is 2 thumbs up!

This movie, whose name I will not speak nor write, is very bad. Consider yourself warned. Bad. Bad movie.

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!

I was mostly disappointed. At first I was looking forward to seeing two actresses I really like (Rebecca Budig and Selena Gomez), but was let down in that 1. Miss Budig had less than a minute of screen time and dialogue, whereas Selena had plenty of screen time, but was limited to portraying an angry girl who swore a great deal. An unrealistic chase scenario with a poor story line. One error, police cars in Bulgaria do not have „police” written on their cars, rather Полицията.

The movie was ok, the scrip was simple (not necessarily a bad thing), the duration of the movie was adequate, one-trick-pony Hawke was entertaining as usual, but the overacting girl just ruined the movie for me. I know she was supposed to be eye-candy, but somehow it felt like she was a terrible miscast.

This movie wasn't good. The plot line was really cliche and lazily done. I didn't enjoy Selena's acting in this movie either. It wasn't very enjoyable watching the car scenes because I felt like I was getting to see what was going on, then a zoom in of Selena's face and a one-liner that was usually "S***" or "Oh my God" etc. I think the car scenes would have been better if they took out a lot of the one-liners and zoomed-in shots and just showed the viewer what was going on outside the vehicle. You know, the actual car chase. The car chases felt really similar to me as well. Police cars and the other car. Police cars crash. Chase scene over. The motorcycle chase wasn't very realistic to me. I can't imagine it's easy to shoot at someone while trying to drive a motorcycle at high speeds. Never having to reload your weapon must help. I found the movie to be predictable and the characters felt really plain and unoriginal. I didn't even sense the chemistry between the main character and his wife. It was just one of "those" movies that are easily forgettable but pass the time nonetheless.
