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.

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.

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.

If you watch this movie after reading the "1" star reviews you are a glutton for punishment. I was the sorry fool that did not read the one stars, saw a few ( Fake) Five stars and felt MEH it cannot be that bad. IT IS. Beyond stupid and poor Ethan, I guess we all do something dumb once in awhile. The girl in this movie ( don't know who she is don't care) cannot act, and her part in the movie is so dumb it is sad. It makes no sense to add her in to this-at all-and truly, if she were not it in, I may have rated it a two-but, she just plopped it down to a one as her acting tanks. Take from ALL OF US. GETAWAY from this movie.

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.

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.

There are two things there is waaay too much of in this film, vehicle mayhem and Selena Gomez. Now I like car chases/crashes as much as the next guy but this becomes tedious fast. Add to that Selena Gomez acting a fool throughout and the annoying factor goes way up. Still, there is some entertainment to be had..

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.
