A REAL HERO

DRIVE (2011)
– 4 and a half out of 5 stars

RYAN GOSLING! (AGAIN!)

This was way more bloody than expected. If I didn’t know better, I would think they were all trained to slash arteries. *splash*

This is the must-see Ryan Gosling movie of the year! Mechanic and stuntsman by day, getaway driver by night, Gosling is the ultimate representation of a man. Always seen in his signature satin scorpion jacket, he gives his all to protect his neighbour, Irene (the lovely Carey Mulligan), when she is implicated in a heist gone wrong.

I love the elevator scene, though it must have frightened Irene. I can hear the bones crack. And his driving is so good, it really inspired me (for the duration of the movie). The ending was bittersweet, and I guess it was expected in a sense because bad guys will always be bad guys.

The soundtrack is also very groovy! Electro-80s-synth pop!
