Drive ★★★½

The whole thing starts with a no-nonsense intro that sucks you in, but then its like is never seen again in the movie. There is good acting to be found, but a lot of the scenes of character interaction are needlessly pensive. The 80s vibe really works though. I don't know I would like it as good if I wasn't a fan of French electropop, but for what it's worth all the scenes blasting it felt more driven. Also, other than the beginning of the movie there is only one real car chase scene and it's disappointingly short.

The only real reason to see this movie is to follow the actions and discern the thought process and what's going on in the mind of the main character. Without spoiling anything, at least that aspect goes places that might surprise the viewer. In short, the film is well produced and engaging but has its flaws.
