Total awesome. My heart was in my throat continuously watching this. Great visual style, Awesome soundtrack, and one of the best movie openings I've seen in a while. The chemistry between Gosling and Mulligan is palpable. One suggestion when you watch it - turn the lights down and the sound up - it is a movie that requires your undivided attention...

If you want to really enjoy Drive, I'd suggest you do the following. Get a big screen (like, 32"+). Get a 5.1 surround system and something that has a real bass kick for the engines. Turn all the lights off; turn the volume way up. Watch the blu ray.
If you watch it like that and get completely absorbed in it, I'm pretty sure you'll appreciate this film for the gripping cinematic experience it is.

What a poor movie, i really don't understand how many people like this movie...

loading replies

WTF was that ?

How the hell a crappy movie like this gets 8.0 in IMDB ???

The whole movie is extremely slow , almost nothing happens during the plot line .
The main character is the emotional equivalent of shoe. His expression is always the same , and he does not react to anything.

The plot line consist more of the main character staring at the wall then of him driving.

This movie is a total waste of time.

The only redeeming factor in this was the soundtrack...the movie was paced waaaaaaaay too slow...not at all what I expected.

great style, 80's Soundtrack -> Win !

And no Oscar. The Academy is ridiculous...

8/10

I didn't find it a good movie , every scene where there's a conversation it takes so long ! its like the actors have to pause 3 minutes between every sentence. I got bored real fast

loading replies

Not what I expected... Not enough action and too drawn out at times. Story did not flow together all that well either. Okay at best. Not sure what everyone else is so excited about.

Wow. Not sure what people are thinking, calling this a modern classic? Nope. If you want that, see "Nightcrawler." Hell, "Baby Driver" is a better "getaway driver" movie and at least brings something inventive to the table. I watched this with much anticipation, having heard it was a great movie. Not really. Let's watch the two main characters stare at each other for long, soundless scenes, populate the film with ZERO interesting characters, and then top it of by having a main character with the emotional range of a toothpick (see what I did there). It's too bad - Gosling's a great actor (but not in this) and I loved the director's "Neon Demon." Oh well, you can't win them all...

Fucking great movie. 10/10.

loading replies

At times, I wonder if I'm watching another movie than the one that a lot of people have been raving about... Did not get this movie at all.

loading replies

6/10. Expect much more.

loading replies

The worst movie of all times. laughable dialogue, cliched and unbelievable story, all garnished with pathetic (lack of) acting. 8.0 on IMDB, nominated for oscar?!...bitch, please!

loading replies

Thought this was extremely slow, shallow and poorly delivered... Not quite sure why people liked this.

loading replies

Expected much better, poor movie

loading replies

As others have noted, Drive is a ridiculously stylish, unusually paced take on the crowded action genre. It's almost unheard-of for the lead in this type of film to be so stoic, contemplative and softly spoken, but in this instance it works magnificently thanks to a deep, powerful performance from Ryan Gosling and a masterful sense of directorial timing. Gosling's nameless wheelman speaks maybe one full page of very limited dialog throughout the picture, but the deliberate way he pauses to contemplate before acting (and the broad range of subtle facial ticks he broadcasts in the process) tells us more than an encyclopedia of dialog could ever manage.

Without the rudder of a brash, charismatic lead, the plot often flirts with disarray amid a very loose structural backbone. Ultimately, though, it flows surprisingly well despite those departures, the lull of its often slow, casual pace emphasizing a penchant for sharp, sudden skids into violence. My only gripes lie with the shallow, under-explored villains at the heart of all the madness and a shortage of great chase scenes for Gosling to navigate. The few we get are so good, it's a real shame they aren't more frequent.

Not your average heist movie with high octane car chases and gun fights. Drive is a aesthetically pleasing movie. Its like a long synthwave music video.

loading replies

Movie is awesome, sound track also awesome, why so much hate on this movie? Currently on my top 10 recommended list, much better than night crawler imo.

loading replies

What a strange movie. Very weird choice of soundtracks. I don't know what the producer and writers thought they were doing with this.
It is very slow. Nothing good about it, except maybe the cinematic visuals.
Waste of time for me. However, I am sure many people can enjoy it if it's their kind of movie. After all, this is just my humble opinion.

loading replies

Good acting, music sucks. hate the ending.

loading replies

It's not the greatest movie of all time, but it's fun to watch and I don't have any major complaints about the film (acting, effects, storyline). What makes this film so "feeling" is the ambiance and synthwave music paired really well with the scenes!

Killer soundtrack, great directing and superb cinematography.

Pretty slow but charming.

loading replies

A stunning, violent, slow-burner thriller.

It really is amazing how much you can take from a character that barely speaks throughout the film and Ryan Gosling is among the fantastic cast here. Everyone stands out to tell this tense-story of someone losing control and spiralling out of control. The music and tense score resonate throughout the film as the story unravels to a melancholy aesthetic.

However, I was really surprised by the level of violence within this film. Never does this take you out of the film and surprisingly, pulls you into the story even more. There are some lingering shots on this but it is presented in such a way that it throws you at the deep-end of the protagonist's life and how he needs to do all the things he does to survive.

This is a story about identity overall and how life can be changed in a matter of moments - which I don't think a film executes more perfectly than this film.

loading replies

wow really people love that show, I wanted something with a little action and found this a good snooze fest, couldn't get past 30 minutes before I had to watch something else

loading replies

Great movie loved the emotional side of it..just like i enjoyed beautiful soundtrack
Ryan was superb in this movie

loading replies

A truly beautiful and hypnotic film.

loading replies

So, great acting, good story, I guess but man... The slowest action movie I have ever seen. Like, it aspires tranquility with a slight Zen aura. I could have missed 45 minutes at the beginning, in the middle or the end. Wouldn't even have noticed nor cared...

loading replies

Everything in this movie seems perfectly balanced: music, tension, action, and violence. 5 stars!

loading replies

One word - It's a piece of art. The whole movie has a distinct feeling to it you just have to embrace. It's beautifully shot, there's the right gore and action in the right moments and thrilling scenes alternate with calm and thoughtful scenes. Drive is a stunning portrayal of an underground story about friendship, revenge and a uncommon job.

loading replies

Great premise, but aside from the first few minutes and a couple of scenes in between this movie's a complete snore-fest.

loading replies

Too much non-action long scenes makes it hard to watch.

loading replies

Yeah, this was real bad.

loading replies

This should be called: The main character has as much personality as the card he Drive. A good movie, but zero character development. In the end, I didn't even remembered his name (he doesn't even have one), nor cared about his fate.

loading replies

ok, but overrated.

loading replies

Fantastic film. One of the best from 2011.

loading replies

This had about 20 minutes of story spread out over the film's 100 minute running time. Very long drawn out shots and emotional stares were oddly put in place to make up for a lack of anything interesting to do. I found myself incredibly bored during this film's entirety.

The credit typeface also just ruined the movie for me before it began. What was with the super 80s cheesy dance movie font? And in purple? To be fair, it wasn't quite as bad as Avatar using Papyrus.

It is a good movie but not THAT good.

loading replies

The trailer short changed this film and people will either get more or less than expected. I got much more, but I get those that didn't.

There is little praise left to give to Drive that has not already been said here. For me, director Refn can do no wrong and his Euro stylings bring this neo-noir gorgeously to the screen.

Ryan Gosling gave one of his best performance; incredibly controlled, his face says nothing, his smile everything... then later he stops smiling and you see what he conceals.

Albert Brooks was fantastic, a couple of his scenes are quite unnerving.

Ron Perlman usually plays great characters, often with a little fun, and I always look forward when I see him credited. I did not enjoy his performance here to the point that I think he was miscast.

Mulligan is beautiful and sadly that was all that stood out for me. Her character was pretty standard fare but handled well.

Soundtrack, cinematography, his jacket; all perfect.

Totally driven!

Not the movie i was expecting. Kinda boring,nice soundtrack though.

Sometimes there's no need for words to be communicated. Just a feeling. Enchanting and magical, but also super cool.

Out of all of the soundtracks, "He Had a Good Time" is by far my favorite.

I wish there was more movies like this, but then again, it won't be special anymore.

loading replies

Could someone please explain why they think this movie was Oscar worthy??

loading replies

Well what a waste of time. The actors only had 4 pages of script to memorise, nobody spoke. Main character is a statue, no emotion. The story is very weak. The saving grace of this film is the soundtrack

loading replies

This movie reminds me The Guest in some way. Maybe the mood, soundtrack, main character coming from nowere...

loading replies

It's a good movie.
But I don't feel like it's any more than that.

The character is pushed into a story that's not hers... The world is "too" small.

7 is the number.

Awesome movie enjoyed every bit of it.

This movie require a right mood to watch, and that gloomy mood doesn't always appear (at least for me it doesn't). But if you do find that mood, and you are not that sleepy, you are going to enjoy the hell out of it. Still think Baby Driver is the better offer out there, though.

loading replies

Meticulous, beautifuly crafted film. Don’t watch this movie with the mindset of expecting another blockbuster action movie, because this isn’t one.
The attention to detail, directing and characters is what makes this movie blossom.
8.5/10

loading replies

This was more or less what I expected it to be. Thought the visuals and photography were incredible, the soundtrack was really interesting and gave the film some heart, the story was okay, a plot twist here and there but nothing too mind blowing, the violence was extreme but I didn't mind it, it gave the film some edge. Loved Ryan in this, but I could honestly just sit through a 3 hour film of him just walking around and I'd be okay with it, because I love him that much lol.

8/10

One of my favorite movies. Masterpiece.

loading replies

Masterpiece. Yes, it’s a slow burn but if you pay attention there’s a lot of things happening even if it does not look that way. From direction to acting and soundtrack, this is as good as it gets.

loading replies

While I'm all in for Outrun music and Retro fonts. The movie does not deliver at all. The story sucked. Ryan is THE most boring actor in the history of hollywood. The direction sucked. Lots of continuity failures.

I imagined that this movie will be a good "Hotline Miami" movie, but after watching it, I wish I never did. The movie in its entirety sucked.

I gave it 1 heart because there isn't any rating lower than that.

loading replies

This movie just oozes of style. The killer soundtrack, the neon colors and cinematography are all fantastic. The plot is a little slow in the first half after the initial chase but boy does it pick up in the second half. Ryan Gosling has such a way of appearing as non threatening but becoming ruthless. He is definitely on of my favorite actors working today. Carey Mulligan is great too and I totally forgot Oscar Isaac is in this too.

loading replies

This movie has the worst soundtrack I've ever heard. When I saw this, I couldn't believe it was made in 2011 - it sounds like they dug up some unwanted records from 1960 to compose the music for this. Because of that, the whole movie suffers. Otherwise, a moderately interesting story.

loading replies

It's a movie that I would call "Bah", one more of the pile, with a very simple and predictable story, little drama and little action. But the performances and are very good

loading replies

"Drive" is a masterpiece.

I saw this movie already twice in less than 2 weeks. And it keeps getting better and better.

The opening scene was awesome. The action scenes are superb, the cinematography, and the soundtrack, holy shit, the soundtrack!!! One of the best in recent memory. Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston and the rest of the cast were brilliant.

But the real star of this movie, is, without a doubt, Nicolas Winding Refn. The direction was nearly perfect.

"Drive" is a movie that you need to pay attention, there are a lot of visual storytelling elements, some things the characters say that are very important to the narrative.

If you have not seen "Drive" yet, please do. It's a magnificent movie.

@correia9 It is a cinema masterpiece, that is why people like it. Stick to brain-dead super hero movies as you have no appreciation of firm.

loading replies

simple storyline.not too heavy action flick.and the cinematography just calm.

Too slow for my taste. You could squeeze another movie if you combine all the pauses.
At a regular pace, the plot will be over in 30 minutes.

Absolutely briliant new soundtrack Zane Lowe has put together!

great movie i love the soundtrack and when they use it and the direction is beautifully done

Amazing movie. Some gorgeous scenes in there. The pace of the movie feels like you're in a dream. The beautiful scenes make the violence come across even more brutal.

I didn't like this movie the first time I saw it. I will give it another chance someday though.

had a different subject.İ like it.

Brilliant movie, but won't appeal to everyone.

Gosling's performance was stunning, and is probably his best to date. Each actor brought something refreshing and truthful to their parts.

Everything else is top-notch, especially the soundtrack.

nice comment biggles1000. This was, in fact, the best Movie experience i had in a long ( long.... ) time. close to perfection. 9/10.

loading replies

As played by Ryan Gosling, he is in the tradition of two iconic heroes of the 1960s: Clint Eastwood's Man With No Name and Alain Delon in "Le Samourai." He has no family, no history and seemingly few emotions. Whatever happened to him drove any personality deep beneath the surface. He is an existential hero, I suppose, defined entirely by his behavior.

i dont understadn why anyone can give this stupil boring movie 8.0... the only thing i like in the movie is the soundtrack and the jacket from the glad main charater ^^ u better call the movie boy with the silber scorpionzipper...

my rating is 5.8.....

i think rubber is better :P

This was far from what I was expecting, and to be honest I'm glad of it. I expected some cheesy fast and furious rip off but instead got what could be one of the best movies of 2011.

On the topic of music, the ending song was very fitting.
