Trivia

Steve Picerni drove the Shelby, going 70mph, with two police cars in pursuit and five stunt cars coming straight at him. The scene culminated with a "double cannon"-both police cars crash and catapult over the Shelby. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

The Kid: No, please don't, don't, don't.
Brent Magna: Yep, Yep, Yep, Hold on.

"Getaway" from this train wreck
29 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The "plot" follows Former race car driver Brent Magna (Played by Ethan Hawke.) Who discovers that his wife has been kidnapped by a mysterious man referred to as the Voice,(Played by Jon Voight.) Who promises to promises to return her to safety if he completes a series of broad and laughable tasks while driving through the streets of Sofia, Bulgaria in a supped up Shelby Super Snake Mustang. Along the way, he runs into the original owner of the Mustang named "The Kid" (Played by Selena Gomez.)

Now, at first glance it's very easy to see that this movie's plot and characters are there to serve as a backdrop for the action, which would at least be tolerable, if the action was any good, sadly that is not the case here. Getaway is weighted Down by it's clunky script and frantic direction. The action sequences are unwatchable, consisting of exhaustingly monotonous and poorly edited car chases. And in the rare moments where it escapes that monotony, it usually crosses the border into unintentional hilarity.

The Acting is terrible. Though in Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez' defense, the horrible dialogue (which consists mostly of sh*t and a**hole) is to more to blame then they are.

Never has a movie been more apply titled than "Getaway". Because it's warning you to "Getaway" and avoid this clunker at all costs.
