    Though it was aright, wouldn’t be in any hurry to watch it again myself

    first half was cringeworthy, thought it was a pisstake, then it picked up and I think the second half only works because of the crap first half

    oddd one, still undecided

    No. This is STW, your opinion must be completely opposite from those who disagree with you πŸ™‚

    FTFY.

    Well I watched it the same night as I watched Warrior. I ended up watching Warrior again the next day.

    So I guess I want to get married to Warrior and hope that Drive gets run over by a train.

    thought it was ok, but nothing special. kept loosing interest as hardly any of the characters had any qualities that made me remotely care if they survived the film.

    Loved it, precisely because it was style over substance. Similarly, I also loved Lost in Translation. But I can see why others would dislike the film for the same reason.

    The storyline wasn’t that strong but visually I found it brilliant.

    That’s funny, me too.
    I enjoyed it, but Ryan Gosling’s blank expression throughout got on my nerves after a while.

    When he’s driving over the bridge and the helicopter spots the car so he puts his foot down, they all get pressed back in their seats but the car doesn’t actually go any faster and they’re still stuck behind the same cars when they come off the bridge! I may have some sort of OCD type thing, but that annoyed me.

    Also, that car chase half way through was pretty poor given the the tense build up, especially the naff Fast-And-Furious-esque driving in reverse bit.

    i still quite liked it though, especially the music.

    Really enjoyed it, could go into all sorts of bobbins about its influences and nods to other films but wont as I cant be bothered.

    I liked it.

    would listen to the soundtrack, rather than watch the film again

    Not seen it, and having read the review, not likely to. But Independence Day was great, would watch that one again.

    Just watched this over the weekend.

    Absolutely bloody loved it.

    Drive – Rotten Tomatoes

    After hearing a few of my friends complain that it was “boring”, I knew it was going to be good, since they are the same friends that agreed that Independence Day was one of the most “powerful” films they’ve ever seen πŸ˜‰

    Style over substance? Perhaps, but my goodness, it’s pumped full of style.

    Going to watch it again tonight with the sound turned up even louder πŸ™‚

    ALSO: do not watch any trailers or read anything about the plot. Just watch it, you’ll get a lot more out of it IMO.

    I found the violence in it quite shocking. Not because it was particularly graphic (it’s not) but it’s certainly brutal. Somebody in the cinema walked out during the lift scene….. wuss.

    I watched warrior at about the same time too – which was much better IMO.

    Very unremarkable. Forgotten most of it already. Rampart much better.

    Drive was OK but Drive Angry was so bad it bordered on genius.

    Watched it this afternoon and whilst I reserve the right to change my opinion completly, i couldnt grt into it, too slow, main charachter very annoying pauses.

    Loved it.

    Brilliant soundtrack and Gosling even manages to make double denim a viable option once again for the devastatingly handsome thirty-something man. And me.

    I thought it was great. And, as somebody said above, I found it very violent in a non graphic way.

    Loved it, especially the gleaming soundtrack… I pretty much danced home from the cinema.

    Utter shite, then again I have a passion for the truth and logical analysis.

    The whole thing was just pathetic, people are coming to kill you with knives, buy a fracking gun, problem solved!

    Loved it.

    I like Ryan Gosling and his preference for appearing in slightly leftfield films.
