Movie Info

The Getaway, a remake of Sam Peckinpah's excellent escape thriller of the same name, adapted from a story by Jim Thompson, is the story of ill-fated romance on the run. Doc McCoy (Alec Baldwin) is released from a Mexican prison with the help of gangster Jack Benyon (James Woods) who wants Doc's help in the hold-up of a racetrack. With the help of Doc's wife Carol (Kim Basinger), and Jack's thugs Rudy (Michael Madsen) and Frank (Philip Hoffman), the robbery is successful, but a guard is murdered.

A scene for scene remake that's still great fun. Odds are you won't be moved or enlightened, but you'll never be bored.

Fantastica Daily

Only fair remake of the classic.

December 18, 2004
Nolan's Pop Culture Review

so-so but serviceable remake of the Steve Mcqueen classic, with a fairly exciting shoot-em-up at the end.

March 21, 2003

A pale imitation of the 1970s classic!

August 7, 2002

Trashy "guilty pleasure" remake.

Audience Reviews for The Getaway

Cool criminals cavort capriciously in this casual entertainment effort that's concerned about how cool everything looks and not about the complexity. Still fun.

A good action packed film with an array of well known actors. It has some great shootouts, stunts and steamy scenes with Kim Basinger! For some reason you can't get this on DVD region 2 so managed to catch it on TV. A good blast from the past enjoyable old school action film.

a) Because Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw didn't get it right? b) Because MacGraw wasn't blonde enough? c) Because David Morse is a great actor who deserves to be in every movie possible? d) Because Richard Farnsworth and Slim Pickens both played the same role well? The correct answer is d.
