Getaway (12A)

Getaway (12A)

Action, Crime

Former race-car driver Brent Magna is pitted against the clock when his wife is kidnapped by a mysterious villain. He commandeers a young woman's car and takes her on on a high-speed race against time.

The critical consensus

For anyone looking for a slice of low-rent action, Getaway provides plenty of cheap thrills for your buck.

You watch the resultant, wholly bloodless carnage with brain in neutral and eyes glazing over, as you would a re-run of Police, Camera, Action! at two in the morning.

**(*)(*)(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 05/12/2013

Alas, director Courtney Solomon burns out all the cool potential, leaving us with a witless and unforgivably tame car wreck.

This isn't so much a movie as a glorified stock-car race.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 05/12/2013

If only they'd spent more time tuning up the script rather than just trawling through the junkyard of used car parts.
