- Phenomenal acting. Every actor and actress played their part perfectly. Gosling did a great job playing a character torn by his decisions in life and his current state. Perlman was awesome as usual. The entire cast was great.
- The movie had a good pace to it. Quite a lot of talking but the moments of action were good and very vivid.
- The music used in the movie was different and quite good.
- This was a movie in which I could feel the suspense and cared about the outcome of each character.
- The city of LA was brought to life quite well. Although full of people, the director created a sense of loneliness within it.
- The movie from start to finish is GREAT!
- The few moments of violence are intensely real and gory.
- I would have liked to know more about the Driver’s past.
Final Thought: Awesome movie. Enough cannot be said about this film. It needs to be seen on the big screen. Go see it today.
