What it had going for it was an uncanny and moving relationship between Gosling and Mulligan.

Hands down the coolest film of 2011, Drive is a stylised genre film where the genre is constantly changing.

Gordon and the Whale

Something under the hood of Drive captured my heart; director Nicolas Winding Refn has admirably crafted a fine piece of retro-noir cinema.

Neither overblown action movie or intimate character study, Drive is somewhere in between - my approximation of "an arthouse Fast & Furious" wasn't too wide of the mark after all.

We Got This Covered

Nicolas Winding Refn's atmosperic direction, Gosling's sheer presence and a soundtrack that's perfection make Drive a fantastic film.

Final Cut on Film

With a titanic infusion of pound-feet of torque, Drive is the best movie of 2011, a raging race that's part F1 and equal part demolition derby.

If Sofia Coppola were a dude making genre action movies to impress Quentin Tarantino ... those movies would be a lot like this.

Drive is surprising in many ways, from its quietly spoken first act through its increasingly violent and unexpected trajectory.

It's a slow-burn romantic fairy tale that suddenly turns dark and very violent, but director Nicholas Winding Refn is a master at developing suspense and menace, and every frame of this movie is dripping with both.

A classic tale of revenge, love and madness is given a refreshing polish and shine by director Nicolas Winding Refn. Drive is one of the year's very best.

Nicholas Winding Refn's 'neon-noir' heist film Drive winds the speedo back 25 years to honour the spirit of 80s action films, but this fable about fast cars and mob violence isn't afraid to show its feminine side.

... celebrates -- one might say revels in -- the pulp mythology of existential anti-heroes and criminal chivalry and street opera tragedy of American movies.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Young directors would do well to take a cue or two from Refn when it comes to telling an engrossing story, because when a filmmaker with real vision is at the wheel, even the familiar can feel fresh, new, and exciting.

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

"Drive" is not the "Fast and Furious" knockoff you might think it is based on the advertising. It is far more artistic and thoughtful than any of those films could ever hope to be. Consider it a thinking man's action movie.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

Action and smarts don't necessarily go hand-in-hand. But director Nicolas Winding Refn ('Bronson') deftly blends them in 'Drive,' a phenomenally entertaining movie that employs a haunting soundtrack, clever direction and entertaining characters.

PopMatters

Drive's most striking movie reference might be the one where you're watching Irene watch the Driver enact an especially awful beat-down. It's a moment that's at once frightening, tragic, and not startling enough.
