Reviews about Getaway
It's all you can do not to laugh. Oh, go ahead. 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.
If movies need us to suspend disbelief, you have to supply your own clothes hangers for Getaway.
This latter-day B movie can be rather fun in its preposterousness and bargain-basement style.
Getaway is pretty much a 90-minute car chase. That's it.
The only participant to emerge with its reputation intact--though not its paint job--is the Shelby Mustang muscle car, which also delivers the film's most nuanced and psychologically complex performance.
Getaway has some of the crass trappings of a charmingly crass, go-for-broke action pic like the delightful Crank. But it's too dumb - and far too cynical about what audiences want - to even know how to have fun with them.
Getaway is a videogame-one at its best when realizing this truth.
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.'
The wretchedness on display here is stunning, as if the screenplay was spat out by a musty, old Commodore 64 possessed by the spirit of Ed Wood.
This is the antithesis of craftsmanship.
If you want to enjoy 'Getaway' feeling like you might be a blue bottle that's about to go 'splat' on the windscreen, rev it up.
The story is just an excuse for 90 minutes of fast cars and crashes ... filmed in a grueling, dirty, too-fast edited fashion...
