Drive is a movie starring Ryan Gosling (The Notebook, Crazy, Stupid, Love).  He plays a stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver for criminals. When one of the heist he drives in goes wrong, he finds out that a hit has been put out on him.  I saw this movie and I WAS NOT READY.  I went in thinking, “Ok, this is going to be a heist movie with some nice driving stunts a la Fast and the Furious.”  WRONG.  It turned out to be a pretty slow at the beginning, which was fine, but it left me wondering where exactly it was going.  Gosling was soo creepy to me in this movie.  He reminded me some of his character from Murder By Numbers. It was just weird seeing him this way since I just saw Crazy, Stupid, Love last month and he was just so delicious in that one. The movie itself when it finally got going about an hour into it got extremely violent and kind of went off the rails.  I liked the movie though.  The acting was good and it has a good cast (Carrie Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks).  If you are a fan of film noir, then you’ll like this movie.  It opens in theaters Sept 16.
