This latter-day B movie can be rather fun in its preposterousness and bargain-basement style.
August 30, 2013
Hawke compensates with a vivid, ferocious performance that doesn't go over the top.

Director Courtney Solomon makes sure the pace never flags, holding our attention with complex multi-camera coverage, and Hawke does just the tiniest bit more acting than necessary for a genre piece.

For all of its vices, I can't help but think that we've brought Getaway on ourselves. It's not the car chase film we need right now, but it's probably the car chase movie we deserve. And if the finale is any indication, a sequel could be ready to go.

Getaway is a videogame-one at its best when realizing this truth.

When chipmunk-faced Gomez curses, sailor-like, waves a big gun, brags on her genius-level hacker skills-you wanna say, 'Put down that fake gun and go sing a nice pop ditty.'

The wretchedness on display here is stunning, as if the screenplay was spat out by a musty, old Commodore 64 possessed by the spirit of Ed Wood.

This is the antithesis of craftsmanship.
October 10, 2014
If you want to enjoy 'Getaway' feeling like you might be a blue bottle that's about to go 'splat' on the windscreen, rev it up.

The story is just an excuse for 90 minutes of fast cars and crashes ... filmed in a grueling, dirty, too-fast edited fashion...
July 22, 2014
It's all you can do not to laugh. Oh, go ahead. But be forewarned that there are many miles to go before we get to the end and it will feel like an eternity before any of it makes sense.
July 22, 2014
While the seemingly endless car chase has many literal gear changes, Getaway as a film is a monotone experience.

It's mildly diverting, and it clearly hopes you won't point out if not its inconsistencies, then areas where it could have tried harder.

Getaway feels like a project that was undercooked, needing snappier dialogue, better shot coverage in its action sequences, and especially a heavier dose of macho charisma.

If you like car crashes and bizarre casting pairings, have I got a movie for you! If you like good movies, yeah, not so much.

July 22, 2014
Little more than a 90-minute chase scene, this film is targeted directly at the Fast & Furious crowd, but it has only one expensive car to smash up instead of many dozen.

February 7, 2014
What might have been a guilty pleasure is anything but thanks to badly-staged action scenes and a script that resembles a tick-list of action-flick cliches.

CRASH. "Slow down!" CRASH. "Pull over!" "Do it. Now!" CRASH.
January 3, 2014
If movies need us to suspend disbelief, you have to supply your own clothes hangers for Getaway.
December 8, 2013
With its smashy-crashy aesthetic and endless scenes of hyperbolic car-nage, Getaway exhausts the viewer's patience long before the finishing line approaches.
