Storyline Heading
Brent Magna is a burned out race car driver who is thrust into a do-or-die mission behind the wheel when his wife is kidnapped. With Brent's only ally being a young hacker, his one hope of saving his wife is to follow the orders of the mysterious voice who's watching his every move through cameras mounted on the car Brent's driving.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - This action film is essentially one long car chase and wreck with little in the way of story. This is mostly a two-character piece for leads Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez, and fans of the pair should be pleased, though this is a more hard-edged role for the young former Disney star. Fans of Jon Voight may be disappointed that he is, for nearly all of the film, only heard and not seen at all except for closeups of his mouth and eyes. Violence and language make the film too intense for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average Unfortunately, most of 'Getaway' is so bad that these inspired touches can't save it. It's a loud blur.

USA Today Full Review
Poor Despite non-stop action, 'Getaway' can't muster a script or character, leaving it a sputtering dead-end.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 21 moviegoers:
None of the new movies this week drew much of an audience . Consequently, we were only able to collect 21 reviews from a couple of showings. Fortunately, even these few reviews clearly show that "Getaway" is not a movie worth your time. Some males enjoyed a somewhat but that's probably due to the extensive stunt driving action.
