100 Word Film Review – Drive

by limebirdaaron

This week’s 100 Word Film Review is Drive.

Starring:

Ryan Gosling
Carey Mulligan
Bryan Cranston
Christina Hendricks
Ron Perlman
Oscar Isaac
Albert Brooks

Given the name I thought there was going to be a lot of…driving. There are a couple of good chase scenes but there is far more to the film than that. To start with I thought Ryan Gosling’s character was supposed to be a bit slow, due to a lot of blank expressions and strange smiles, but it turns out he wasn’t. Another slow starter, but it really grabs you once it picks up. Despite my vague and seemingly harsh review, I really liked this and I think you’ll enjoy it more if like me you don’t know too much.

  1. Ah ha! Fixed it! For some reason this was posted from my account, not yours. Weird wordpress. Anyways… I also enjoyed this film. It was a bit strange to start off with, I was thinking that it was a bit slow, but it definitely picked up. It was completely different to what I thought it would be, which I liked. Oh, and Ryan Gosling isn’t too bad to look at either. :)

  2. I haven’t seen it, but may do, and not just to admire Ryan Gosling ;)

  3. I haven’t seen it, but I probably should since Ryan Gosling is in it :D

  4. We all seem to like Ryan Gosling…me too! It’s good to have consistency in thought, right? :)

  5. My husband saw it in the theater and raved about it so I agreed to watch it with him last night. I have to say, I almost agree with him that it COULD have been a great film – lots of fantastic understatement… but I felt it was totally wrecked not with the violence itself, but with the gratuitous graphic nature of it as well as the overall poor sound effects. I am admittedly sensitive to violence, but I can accept the goal of it in plotlines if done right. This one just made me think, “ick.”

    • I was shocked by the violence too, but I think my shock came more from the general surprise, as I had no idea it was going to be that type of film. It’s a shame I agree that some of the violence was overly graphic in parts, but not enough for it to spoil my overall enjoyment of the film
