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. Written by
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 »

The best part of this movie was watching the ending credits...BTW I would not want to take the credit for this flop. I should have suspected a bad flick when the movie only had 5 people watching and 2 of them was me and wife. The best actor was the Mustang...Gomez and Hawk were at an all time low, the dialog was 3rd grade level at best. The plot has been played out, save your money and watch old episodes of The Dukes of Hazard, about as entertaining. Next time I will read the reviews, would have saved the hassle of sitting through another poorly made film, but I guess it was not as bad as Lone Ranger only because it was not as long and drawn out. This one should have went straight to DVD..
