Getaway is the gritty, exciting action thriller from Warner Brothers in which former race car driver Brent Magna is pitted against the clock as he commandeers a custom Shelby Super Snake Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner on a high-speed adventure at the command of a mysterious villain on a race against time to save the life of his kidnapped wife.

When the Shelby tries to drive down a flight of steps, we only see a shot of it starting, and one of it at the bottom. It couldn't have made it down the steps with ground clearance, so we don't see what would have been a good shot, it actually coming down the steps. See more »
This is not Lawrence of Arabia and doesn't pretend to be. It is engaging, exciting, crazy driving sequences, I cared about the characters and yes, it is shallow. Sometimes one doesn't want super deep mind bending movies, just escapism. I sure didn't think about bills due, or other minor problems during this movie. It was fun, if not really believable. It is what it is. Enjoy it if that sounds good. If you are the movie critic of all time, skip it and let some people have lighthearted, superficial fun. Having raced on a small level and taken high performance driving courses I was stunned that this could be filmed without CGI. The moves I saw were close to unbelievable and I can believe the movie had over 6000 edits and crashed over 130 cars-what a bill that must have been.
