Audience Reviews for Drive

    The patient-man's Transporter. I've never been much of a Ryan Gosling fan (probably why it took me five years to get around to watching Drive). I am a fan of virtually every other cast member in the movie, but I didn't know any of them were in it before I started watching it. Drive wasn't enough to bring me around on to the Ryan Gosling train, but I'll tell you who it definitely did put me on to: Director Nicolas Winding Refn. The direction is truly king here in Drive. There are a couple of stylistic choices that didn't work for me, like the repetitive vocal-heavy montages, and I was not at all enamoured by Gosling's character (he seemed like kind of a dick). But overall I was impressed, and will definitely be on the look out for Refn's work in future. Not only did Drive feature some grandly intense bursts of ultra-violence, it also gave me my first jump scare to make me actually jump in... God... Years. At least. Final rating:??? - I personally recommend you give it a go.

    An instant cult classic. Drive is visually stunning, has a well written story, great soundtrack which are all perfectly crafted by Nicolas Winding Refn. Drive is a masterpiece and is definitely worth your time!

    When I first watched this movie all I could think about was how strange it was. Upon second viewing I found this movie much better. Ryan Gosling is flawless as a driver of very few words and elevates Drive to great height

    Before you ask, this is not my first Refn movie. In that way, I can know that: - He still likes to dress his crooks with light grey pants and have some of them bald, like if they were still living in Denmark. - He still uses an awesome techno soundtrack (with some pop touches that I can forgive) to open his films and to close them. The underground nudist dive bars / seedy joints cannot be omitted, of course. - He has perfected his visual style all the way from Pusher (1996) until Bronson (2008), including the immaculate camera placement and the golden lightning he uses for illuminating the darkest corners. The camera is a silent stalker, intimidating and seductive at the same time. This turned out to be hist most accessible feature. Winner of a Best Director award and nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, this is not a Hollywood movie. It is a film made in Hollywood by a director that has not resigned to his trademarks and plot-pacing features so that he could get financially greedy. It is a bomb of coolness and style that strikes the senses and assaults your expectations. This is the territory to which Cronenberg attempted twice to return to, placing Viggo Mortensen in more or less convincing roles. Not in this case. Here, violence becomes a protagonist and suspense becomes art. I love Ron Perlman. 97/100
