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.

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

The story is just an excuse for 90 minutes of fast cars and crashes ... filmed in a grueling, dirty, too-fast edited fashion...

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.

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.

CRASH. "Slow down!" CRASH. "Pull over!" "Do it. Now!" CRASH.

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.

Wanting desperately to be Fast & Furious, Getaway is more like the schizophrenic cousin to 12 Rounds.

Amateurish dialogue, frenetic camera work, overzealous editing, and at best a mildly intriguing premise. Maybe we can take solace in some exciting car chases?

"White House Down" all is forgiven! "Getaway" crashes into theaters as the summer's worst movie.

The direction is so amateurish that Getaway fails to even provide serviceable B-movie thrills.

Getaway is loud, obnoxious, and will leave most viewers with nothing but a regrettable headache afterwards.

It's an excuse for a 90-minute orgy of car chases and crashes that thoroughly tests the audience's endurance and patience.

Some of the car crashes are incredible, but what actually made them crash is left all too often to our imaginations.

It's difficult to know quite what is harder to believe. The completely illusory and nonsensical nature of the absurd narrative Getaway or Ethan Hawke was able to make this in the same year he shone in Before Midnight!

Getaway is like a modern take of Speed blended with the Gone in Sixty Seconds remake, but is ruined by a limitless amount of redundant car crashes and an annoying little girl.

We get it, the cops in Bulgaria need some more on-road training. Pass.

December 2, 2013
Filmed on the cheap in Bulgaria, it makes up for what it lacks in originality with a plethora of well-staged car-stunts, and puts action firmly at the centre of its limited appeal.
