Saw it yesterday. Not as many car sequences as I hoped for going into it, but holy wow was that made up for... Only thing I didn't like was that I found some of the interactions awkward. It wasn't so much the silence that did this than everything else. Overall fantastic piece of film though, I saw four stars.
aggravation, isolation; it all leads to devastation

ST; S Snowboard Thread - Just leave, we don't want you. Go talk about snowboard in some other fourm.
Not as many driving scenes as I had hoped for but one hell of a badass movie. Great cinematography, great story, superbly violent. Definitely go see it. One of the better movies to come out in a long *** time. This year has sucked for movies.

I just saw this movie in a theater that was lucikly still playing it. Out of the 4 of us who went to see it, 3 of us loved it. THe other 1 is a Michael Bay kind of guy so I'm not surprised.
I don't want to spoil anything, but I was analyzing so much. Mainly, the fact that he wears the scorpion jacket, and then the other character talks about the scorpion and the frog anecdote...great touch. Also, the whole "how can you tell it is a bad guy? It looks like a shark, so it must be."
I definetly need to see this movie again, I feel there is so much I missed.
I just wish the driver had a name, but that was probably done on purpose too.
Anyone who wants to see an intriguing movie should see this.

Yea soundtrack is amazing, when I heard Kavinsky at the beginning credits I flipped out. I was not expecting this movie to be so good, really loved it. The movie really made me think of the GTA series as I watched it. Just watched the DVD.
overall i liked this movie, the action scenes were superb, and as someone said prior, the soundtrack was great, overall id give it 8/10, what i didnt like was the scenes where the driver would be sitting with the girl, and its literally 2 minutes of us watching them stare at eachother in slowmo, i understand that the director was trying to show you the emotional draw to eachother, but it was still just annoying to me as the watcher.
