Critic Review - Globe and Mail

This is no antic-frantic affair; instead, it's a cerebral game of stop-and-go, hide-and-seek, as the director behind the camera handles things exactly like the guy behind the wheel - with a stylish mixture of cold calculation and cool aplomb.

The movie is boring, lacks dialogue, the characters are not defined, and lack motive. The main character has no personality, and attempts to sell his blank facial expressions, and little to no words as the "man of mysterious demeanor." The main character risks his life on several occasions for a woman he rarely talks to. A 10 second lustful stare down is suppose to be the motivation of the characters multiple life risking actions. The fact this got decent reviews show the bar of Hollywood movies is very low. Don't waste your money, or more importantly, your time.

The movie is boring, lacks dialogue, and the 'driver' doesn't have any motive to justify his life risking actions. The entire screen play must be 3-4 pages.

The main character shows no personality at all. The movie attempts to sell his blank facial expressions, and limited dialogue as some sort of mystery man. However, this mystery has no clues, nor answers, and is a huge failure. The only mystery to me is how a sub par movie has overwhelming positive review, and why I spent 10 dollars on a ticket.

The ending; well, there is no ending! This isn't surprising, based on the fact the bland main character doesn't have any background, personality, motive, or facial expressions. To sum it up; there is no ending because there is no movie. There is no movie, because there is no central theme, or believable motivation.

The fact this movie has overwhelming positive reviews shows the bar has been lowered for the new era of cinematography; or, that critics get a some sort of monetary incentive to sell extra tickets.

Face facts, many people often see a movie based on reviews. There are 10's of millions to be made or lost, depending on critics reviews. When you see a bad movie get overwhelmingly positive reviews; it's safe to assume the movie invested in buying critics.

Chris T how can you be so Arrogant, not only is the movie well reviewed here but on public sites such as imdb it currently has a 8.7 which isn't very easy at all the get on that site. just because you couldn't understand the level of sophistication of the movie doesn't mean you have to go on a crusade to go after everybody who did.

Yeah, all I'm concerned about is flagging all of Chris T(roll)'s stuff as spam.
