  • Summary: The story is about a daredevil motorcyclist quits his carnival job when he learns a former lover has a son - and he now has a family. In order to provide for them, he takes on a series of bank robberies, putting all his riding skills to good use. But this puts him on a crash course with an ambitious police officer looking for a quick way to rise through the ranks of his corrupt precinct.

First Great Movie of 2013

Alex, FilmCrave
14 April 2013
  • Excerpt: 3 films in one, this is a solid movie in virtually every aspect of film making. Great performances by everyone, particularly Gosling and Cooper. Story: A great story that spans over 15 years. Gosling is a stunt driver with a mysterious past (no, not like drive at all) and Cooper is a young new police officer with a Royal past. Their lives intermingle at some point and it is very interesting to see it unfold. Acting: Superb all around.

it just isn’t as good as it should be

  • Excerpt: Did you see drive? Wasn’t it awesome? I absolutely loved it. It was one of the most critically acclaimed movies of 2011, and for good reason it was awesome, and epicly so. The Place beyond the Pines is sort of like a Drive remake and two spin-off movies squished into a 150 minute time slot. The first half or so is very much like Drive (with a little blue valentine thrown in for good measure) without any of the style and a fraction of the substance.
