The drive is an American crime story. A driver, Ryan Gosling is involved in criminal escapades. Together with his buddy Bryan Cranston they run a getaway driving business. The business is really thriving given the rise in crime in the neighborhood. Ryan is in love with Carey Mulligan. He is therefore quick to make friends with her. Carey’s husband is detained in prison. He is later on released as a result; she invites Ryan to their house. Standard Gabriel’s life is in danger and is forced to rob a pawn store to return favors received while in jail. This ordeal turns into a bloody massacre where several individuals die in an attempt to get a share of the money.
Breathtaking scenes make the film incredible. Los Angeles is a beautiful city. The film maker has been able to capture night scenes in the demanding city. Further there is an above ground view of the city. Ryan’s driving is unbelievable. There is multiple car racing events in the movie which make it very enjoyable. The film has envisioned nature where we get to see thunderstorms and rising tides of the ocean at nightfall as Gosling masks Ron Perlman into water. Other appealing scenes include: Standard’s home coming party, Carey and Gosling car drive that is unsurpassed and arrangements for a drive. I can’t neglect Ryan and Carey’s romantic feelings towards each other. The two kiss passionately in the elevator.
It’s shocking how unexpected shots fly in the air. Glasses are shuttered in a bid to recover the stolen money. Music playing at the background is sorrowful. One may guess that dreadful things are bound to happen soon. Further in another scene fast music is played hence elevating a viewer’s mood. Things get tricky at the elevator scene. Ryan shields Carey in an adorable way only to attack his rival. It’s traumatizing how he beats his enemy to death leaving an ugly picture of blood. The film has been instructed in the cleverest way possible. It’s astounding how Ryan and his crew instigate theft plans without attracting the attention of the police. Finally the chase for the money leaves several persons dead. What’s more is that it’s never actually owned.
Watching the drive is the best thing that ever happened.
