IGN Movies AU

It's a film that has its finger on the pulse of what's current and in style, and one that has solidified its place as the coolest film of the year.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

That rare film that can shock both with its uncommonly cool style and chillingly raw substance.

Cinema Crazed

This isn't a movie about action, it's a movie about fate, coincidence, and penance before the clock runs out.

Moviedex

A deliberately paced hybrid of high and low art, one that burns ice-cold with meticulous steadicam shots and hypnotic slow-motion, effortless coolness and stylish intelligence.

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Drive works if you succumb to its broad brush strokes of emotion, the plot propelled by vague ambition and greed, the lush cinematography and the dreamy 80s inspired synthesiser soundtrack.

FILMINK (Australia)

One of this year's most original, entertaining and frankly shocking American movies.

What Drive is trying to do is very clear, but clear intent doesn't forgive a film that's mostly flat.

Platform

The film then, with its elegant style evoking an eighties neon-drenched aesthetic, succeeds effortlessly at blending striking ultra-violence with the screenplays more ponderous sequences of blossoming romance.

If you can make it through one viewing, I dare say Drive is a film you're going to want to watch again and again.

The Age (Australia)

Ultra-violent, ultra-tedious, bargain-basement rip-off of the classic 1978 Walter Hill film The Driver.

The Sun Herald

Drive, above all else, reminds us why Gosling has been hailed as the new Sean Penn, or even a 21st-century Brando. He is outstanding.

Urban Cinefile

It is ironic how much filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn uses the brakes in pacing this noirish art house thriller

A gripping heist thriller with a difference, Drive relies on subtleties, surprises and shocks as it keeps the audience engrossed

A laboratory distillation, but a fairly ravishing one

Film Comment Magazine

While you could lean back and nod along to Refn's posturing, the film plays more like an exercise in turn-of-the-Eighties nostalgia, a movie-length strong-silent swagger inspired by the art on a VHS box.

East Bay Express

That rarity of rarities, an arty actioner that requires almost no excuses.

Refn's style is to draw out scenes to make a slow film punctuated with strong violence.

Fan The Fire

The film treats the audience with intelligence; it doesn't lay everything out and instead leaves you to do a little legwork too.

...the film's irresistibly stylish atmosphere [compensates] for its general lack of context and substance.
