Stylish and unique! One of the absolute best films of 2011. Robbed in virtually every category at the Oscars back in 2011.

When I was awake & watching Drive, The soundtrack drove me nuts! Talk about garbage for your ears.If you want to torture somebody pop the soundtrack into your player & hit repeat.There were also times during the movie where something was suppose to be happening but it felt like nothing was happening at all & it drove me up the wall.I tried & tried to give Drive a chance when my eyelids would let me but after shutting it off after the 4th time I gave up & hit the eject button.Oh yeah, The 1st car chase didn't start until like 45 minutes into the movie

Never has a movie with such little dialogue been such a great movie. This movie really snuck under the radar. This has the feel of a Tarrentino flick. Ryan Goseling's performance was great and outside of his usual realm. I don't even know what category to put this movie in. Very original.

Excellent Blend of 80's, Action and Neo-Noir

I love how implicit Drive was. What other films could not do for me with implicitness, this movie did perfectly. See, it took me a while to start liking this movie and several viewings, but by the third, I loved it. The first time I watched it, I thought: Okay, something new, very creative, I like it.
The Second time: Wow, there is actually a lot more to the story, plus the soundtrack is great.
Third time: OMFG ERMAGERD

On the outside, Drive may look like a bland, clichéd story, like the trailers made it out to be, but this movie has multiple layers. The shots and scenery are mind-numbingly beautiful, Ryan Gosling's acting is so creepy and sly that it gave me goosebumps and it's a sin this wasn't nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Music, Best Director, Best Cinematography or...

'Tension' - Drive

If at any point you wanted to put put Drive on pause, you would be presented with something suitable for framing as a poster on the wall. Every shot in this movie is immaculately conceived and presented. Much in the same way as Quentin Tarantino, Nicolas Winding Refn lets his shots play - and play they do. The cinematography in the movie is staggering. It's as close to a perfect presentation if ever there was one.

The thing about Drive that seems to divide people one way or the other is... well, that it's very nearly on the edge of being a boring movie. However when you examine the characters and dialogue - especially on repeated viewings - there is always something... else, going on. A nuance that the director doesn't necessarily want to thrust into your face...

Drive!

Drive is a technically superb, beautifully acted and directed cinematic treat. Director Nicolas Winding Refn hits it out of the park here, giving us a slowly-paced, but engaging character study about a young guy who will unleash with rage to defend the people he cares about. He doesn't talk much, he's quite calm, but when he gets angry, he gets more interesting. In some way, he's a sociopath. In the end, he's just as mysterious as he was in the beginning. I also have to praise Ryan Gosling for his incredible performance as this incredible character. With outstanding directing, effective performances, an interesting old-school film-making vibe, and pretty messed up violence, Drive rocks!!! This film deserved an Oscar nom! There, I said it.

3.5/4

Hi, I saw Drive on Friday I believe it was. In my opinion it was very well done. I thought that it was going to be good before I saw it so I can't say I was surprised. The acting is really great, led by Ryan Gosling, and the music is also very good in my opinion. As it has been said again and again Gosling is one of the best, if not the best actors of his generation and I completely agree with that.
