Drive

DVD Verdict
13 February 2012
  • Excerpt: It's easy to see why director Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive confused mainstream audiences. Released in the U.S. just after summer blockbuster season, many theatergoers went in expecting an action flick like Fast Five . Instead, they were treated to an indie crime drama with few car chases, long stretches of silence, and a protagonist so enigmatic he doesn't even have a name.

'Drive' is a stylistic, memorable thriller

  • Excerpt: From a distance, Drive looked vaguely like a remake of Walter Hill’s 1978 cult classic The Driver , in which an emotionally constipated wheelman operates by his own inscrutable code of ethics. But the new film (actually based on a recent novel by James Sallis), with its hot-pink neon credits and driving synth-rock score, instead presents itself as the great lost action movie of the mid-’80s.

Drive

Film Guide
16 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Very rarely will a film transcend genre boundaries and offer a mix of Hollywood-style action and arthouse flair, which is what makes Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive so unique and something to be celebrated. Drive tells the story of an unnamed stunt driver (Ryan Gosling) moonlighting as a getaway driver for a crime syndicate run by Bernie Rose (Albert Brooks).

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
27 October 2011
  • Excerpt: "Drive" is an odd little film about a man, his car, and a story that happens in between. By day, our enigmatic driver is quite reserved, and we watch his encounters with trepidation and a pop soundtrack. By night, the base is turned up, and we're placed in the seat next to him evading the police with great thrill. The middle stint might be slow going, but be warned… the violence revs up, and we have no idea where the story is headed.

  • Conclusion: Oh alright, it ain’t Shane. But it is about as much shamelessly disreputable, stylish, ultra-violent fun you’re going to have at the movies this year.

  • Summary: Drive moet je even de tijd geven, het is geen film waarin je elke seconde van je stoel wordt geblazen vanwege de enorme explosies of je oren beginnen te suizen dankzij piepende banden. Deze film brengt een boeiende mix van verschillende genres en vertelt zo een rechtlijnig verhaal, ingevuld door sterke acteerprestaties van met name hoofdrolspeler Ryan Gosling, een stijlvolle soundtrack en een uitstekende regie.
  • Pros: Ryan Gosling, Bijzondere sfeer, Stijlvolle soundtrack, Combinatie van filmgenres
  • Cons: Tempowisselingen, Onbevredigend einde

  • Excerpt: Drive is op het eerste gezicht een mooi gefilmde, maar zeer gewelddadige actiefilm die speelt in de jaren ’80 – compleet met vetgedrukte roze letters op de aankondigingsposter. Daaronder zit echter meer. De combinatie van romantiek, geweld en sterk acteer- en camerawerk maakt Drive tot een film die ver boven de gemiddelde actiefilm uitstijgt.

16 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Zes jaar werd er gewerkt aan de neo-noir Drive . De verfilming van het boek van James Sallis leek af te koersen op formulewerk als The Fast and the Furious , totdat regisseur Nicolas Winding Refn achter het stuur kroop. Het resultaat is een in meer dan één opzicht opwindende film waarmee Refn in Cannes de prijs voor Beste Regisseur won.
