    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    When Macbeth said, "It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing," he must have had visions about Courtney Solomon's Getaway, a car chase thriller with zero thrills and a stench that all the perfumes of Arabia couldn't erase. show more

    You've probably seen this movie before, watching a child play with his toy Hot Wheels cars after eating multiple bowls of sugary breakfast cereal. show more

    A car-chase clunker that can't escape its own noxious emissions. show more

    What Getaway needed most is enough juice to get to the finish line, narratively speaking. Because while jumping into the car is great, the fun dies fast if there’s nowhere to go. show more

    Getaway seems built for non-English speaking territories in which dialogue is as disposable as Bulgarian police cars. If only those audiences were as dumb as the action itself. show more

    The film blinks too fast to maintain a coherent vision. show more

    This is a movie for those who watched Liam Neeson in "Taken" and thought, "Hey, this is fun, but can we do it without having to wait 15 minutes for the action to start?" Solomon has 90 minutes at his disposal, and doesn't want to waste time with setup. show more

    The racing is spectacular, especially when you consider director Courtney Solomon’s claim that no CGI was used in the crash scenes... Solomon wanted to put the audience in the middle of events and inside the car; he certainly does pull that off. Believe me, your head will spin. After a while it all becomes mind-numbing. show more

    Getaway is pretty much a 90-minute car chase. That's it. show more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    By the time the movie actually arrives at its finest moment – a nearly two-minute single shot from the Mustang’s hood as it chases the villain’s van through dense traffic – you’ve become so numb to speed and sensation that you may barely notice. show more

    Not a great movie. Wait, save your money and watch it on HBO. Selena Gomez is truly a pretty girl.

    Waste of money and time. The entire movie is a high speed car chase. All you saw was the inside of a Shelby Mustang and cars being destroyed all around it. Sorry I went!!

    If you want to waste 90min\'s of your life go see this flick. It\'s a non-stop \'race\', wrecking about 100 other vehicles (looks like a 90min Mustang commercial showing the vehicles capabilities)...story line is lamb & the \'costar\' is annoying from the first 30 seconds until the end. A real let down....if you have the slightest interest in seeing this, wait til it\'s on TV....spend your hard earned $$ playing Bingo w/seniors instead. SERIOUSLY!

    I really cannot agree with the other viewers. This movie was a ninety min commerical for Ford\'s Shelby Mustang. I would not recommend this movie to anyone.

    Not great. Not even good. Literally 90 constant minutes of non-stop stock car races and the Indy 500 combined with so many crashed vehicles you can\'t count them all. It\'s like watching a \"loop\" of car chases. Boo.......
