First off, License To Drive is a classic.
Second, I played the hell out of Driver on the Playstation back in the day.
Third, both of the above mentioned are leagues above this dogpile of a movie.
*Spoilers* (if you care)
The previews made Drive out to be like this badass driver did all these amazing getaway or transfer jobs for the mob.
After the first few minutes where he sets the rules and gets the two guys away from the crime scene I thought "okay, this could be cool". Then he decides to help the thug that gets out of prison (you know, the guy who's wife he wants to bang) and when things go wrong we get to see the big (and only) car chase scene. We get way too many long scenes of quiet reflection from our brooding, doesn't-say-much hero. The point of having small roles for actors like Bryan Cranston and Ron Perlman (great, under-used methodical actors) and 5 minutes of Christina Hendicks (great, under-used rack?) was for what exactly? Name recognition to go see the movie? Apparently.
Alot of reviews I saw for this were giving it 4 out of 5 stars. WTF? I know I'm a harsh critic but come ooooooooooon.
Fuck-it list: Owls, Ohio, Facebook, Red Wings.
