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