A little of a haunted man trying to save his wife, wondering if the methods justifies the means, with a snarky teen complaining in his ear is just too much of a strange thing. Aug 30, Full Review…. I’m still not really sure why Voight goes to all that trouble with Hawke behind the wheel, surely he could do what he intended stealthily? You watch the resultant, wholly bloodless carnage with brain in neutral and eyes glazing over, as you would a re-run of Police, Camera, Action! There really is so much stuff that just doesn’t add up and we don’t really learn who Voight’s character is or what is overall game plan is, he’s just pinching loads of money via computers in an extremely over complicated way it seems. Can the Oscars Avoid a Hostless Disaster? But be forewarned that there are many miles to go before we get to the end and it will feel like an eternity before any of it makes sense. The fact Hawke is able to quietly drive around in his burbling Mustang with generally no attention is absurd.
Totally daft how these shitty old Bulgarian police cars manage to keep up with this hyper Mustang or so we’re lead to believe, it ain’t no rice racer and its utterly hilarious how this Mustang gets into so many prangs and collisions but suffers hardly any damage!! It was much less annoying or even apparent than in movies like Transformers. I want my wife back! With Brent’s only ally being a young hacker Selena Gomez , his one hope of saving his wife is to follow the orders of the mysterious voice Jon Voight who’s watching his every move through cameras mounted on the car Brent’s driving. Selena Gomez was bright, and had the expected attitude of someone her character’s age without being precocious or annoying. To save his kidnapped wife, Brent Magna must drive at the orders of a mysterious man. Hawke picks up Selena Gomez along the way.
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.
Ethan Hawke Movies I’ve Seen. Yes No Report this. Otherwise you’ll want to get away from “The Getaway” vioz, see how I did that: I’m still not really sure why Voight goes to all that trouble with Hawke behind the wheel, surely he could do what he intended stealthily?
Ethan Hawke is a onlinr capable actor, and he brought a depth to his character that I didn’t expect.
The other thing that really made me giggle to myself was vioo poorly forced notion that Gomez’s character is some kind of petrol head and the Mustang is actually hers A little of a haunted man trying to save his wife, wondering if the methods justifies the means, with a snarky teen complaining in his ear is just too much of a strange thing.
The two leads are very good in my opinion. More Top Movies Trailers. Give me some popcorn and a Coke, and dim the lights, let me forget about the world for a couple hours, and I’m happy. This is a gettaway movie. Monotonously fast-paced to the point of exhaustion, Getaway offers a reminder of the dangers getawayy attempting to speed past coherent editing, character development, sensible dialogue, and an interesting plot.
It’s not high art. Dec 5, Rating: Getaway is a videogame-one at its best when realizing this truth.
I found everything was easy to follow and served the story well – I didn’t think any style choices got in the way. There really is so much stuff that just doesn’t add up and we don’t really learn who Voight’s character is or what is overall game plan is, he’s just onilne loads of money via computers in an extremely over complicated way it seems. So despite this films title the plot isn’t actually about a getaway no Sir, its more along the lines of someone having to complete missions in a time limit or his wife dies.
Hawke does good, as he always does, but Voight is completely wasted and Gomez is very miscast. Sep 19, Full Review….
I got a kid in the car! You’re the shittiest driver I’ve ever seen. Hawke picks up Selena Gomez along the way.
Paul Freeman as The Man. The movie is what it is and if you know what you’re getting into it shouldn’t geatway that much of a letdown. Then you get a movie like “The Getaway” where it is a 90 minute long car chase, and it just doesn’t work. Rebecca Budig as Leanne. Valet Thug Esteban Cueto And there was one watvh point of view sequence that I thought was especially well done – presumably a single take – that gave me a real rush.

Danko Jordanov as Car Driver. Jon Voight as The Voice. Unfortunately it adds even more to the already high levels of unrealistic nonsense and takes you out of the film completely.
