Drive is a pretty unique film starring Ryan Gosling as the main character. He plays the role of a driver, who has been assigned to drive whoever, wherever they need, with a limited amount of time. It's a very aesthetically pleasing movie, as it has very retro vibes to it. The music is very unique, and I personally love it. The film is very violent at times, but it is very entertaining and exciting. This is definitely one of my personal absolute favourites. I think it's a pretty underrated movie, and doesn't get the credit it deserves. I recommend this film to anyone interested in action packed films, and rate this a 5/5. -Gummibee11 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Rated 3/10. I didn't think this was very well done. The acting and plot were so-so. Quite graphic in parts.

Not recommended.

I've seen better film on teeth. The only (un) redeeming (anti-) quality of this over rated P.O.S. was the headstomp.

I loved this! It's an action film with well-drawn characters and striking violence. There's a strange sense of myth about it too, almost as though this were a modern western. The protagonist is even a man with no name. It had a 1960s/1970s New Hollywood era vibe to it without feeling retro or nostalgic.

Rated R
 
Interesting film with tons of tension, a good soundtrack, car-on-car action, brutal violence, all driven by Ryan Gosling’s unnamed and otherworldly protagonist.
 Maybe it’s the car scenes or the white satin jacket with a gold scorpion on the back or how Gosling’s character would smile a knowing smile whenever he witnessed human beings struggle with the challenges and the crushing tragedies in their lives as if to him we were amoebae, this film deserves a screening.
 And while Gosling’s unnamed protagonist never shook off his otherworldliness, in the end he proved himself a real hero,
                               and a real human bean.

One of the finest modern movies made in the past 12 years- an art house/ cult film for intelligent film goers. Those spooked by smart, stylish, violent movies should stay away from the film.

Driver: [watching a cartoon] Is he a bad guy?

Benicio: Yeah.

Driver: How can you tell?

Benicio: Because he's a shark.

Driver: There's no good sharks?

Bearded Redneck: You're Shannon's buddy right? We met last year. You drove me and my brother back from Palm Springs. We hired another wheelman. I spent six months in jail. My brother, he got himself killed. I got this sweet job coming up. Driver: How 'bout this. You shut your mouth. Or I'll kick your teeth down your throat and I'll shut it for you. Bearded Redneck: Nice seein' you again.
