As a whole, the film seems pointless and incredulous. Yet it's thoroughly absorbing and easy to suspend disbelief because of its noir style and trance-like atmosphere, underscored by its prevailing pulsing score, and maudlin in some.

Drive proves you can make a gripping piece of art almost solely through the use of atmosphere. Gosling understands this and carries the film and its all-important tone with few words, but much intensity.

Drive's rambling, at times confused narrative is electrified every so often by the kind of intense performance that even the Scorsese-directed Robert De Niro would be proud, courtesy of Gosling.

This is a compelling film, but glaciers have moved faster.

The movie fails to transcend its genre film status...and never becomes something truly worthy of a big-shot film critic's time, which would be a movie that's more like a Sociology 101 class.
October 12, 2018
With both hands on the wheel and the pedal pressed flat to the floor, this brilliant, focused thriller proceeds swiftly towards true cinematic greatness.

The audience that sits down to see Drive may expect to see a heist movie, but they will quickly become absorbed in a film that has more in common with a classic Western than a high-octane chase film.

The film's combination of sentiment and bloodshed also recalls much of Takeshi Kitano's best work.
October 23, 2017
Drive is the best love story I've seen at the movies in a long time.

... Drive is actually a film in search of romance, zigzagging through an obstacle course of fairy tale and myth...
September 8, 2017
... Drive is a riveting watch.

[Ryan] Gosling's commitment is total; his talent unplumbed.

It's understandable that the hipster critical mob would put its stamp of approval on this one.
April 17, 2015
I'll never forget the first time I saw Drive. I've since never been able to replicate the experience.

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

This is pop art of the highest degree.

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

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

September 28, 2012
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.
