Moview Review - Getaway (*)

the-getaway-poster

This film takes place in Sofia, Bulgaria. Brent (Ethan Hawke) plays the former race car driver. Leanne (Rebecca Budig) plays Brent's (Ethan Hawke's) wife. The Kid (Selena Gomez) plays the sidekick. Voice (Jon Voight) plays the voice in the car.

Brent (Ethan Hawke) has to steal a car a custom Shelby Super Snake Mustang because his wife Leanne (Rebecca Budig) was kidnapped and has to do what the kidnapper tells him.

Brent (Ethan Hawke) and The Kid (Selena Gomez) drive in the car the whole movie listening to this voice (Jon Voight). The voice (Jon Voight) wants something from Brent (Ethan Hawke) in exchange for his wife Leanne (Rebecca Budig).There are a lot of high speed chases with cops. Also lots of crashing. Does Brent (Ethan Hawke) ever see his wife Leanne (Rebecca Budig) again? Do they make the getaway?

This film reminded me of someone playing a race car video game. They were mostly in the car the whole movie. I got kind of bored of this even though there were high speed cop chases and things blowing up. This movie definitely made me sleepy. The acting in the film was not that great as well. I think this would have been better if it kept you on the edge of the seat but it was a very predictable film.

I would not recommend going to see this movie save your money and wait till dvd.
