Probably the coolest movie of the year. Gosling, Brooks and Cranston are all great and Refn's direction is superb.

Blew me away. It was like if De Palma and David Lynch made an 80's chase movie.

More than lived up to the hype. I was left completely spellbound. Has cult classic written all over it.

Just saw this for the first time today and I was so completely mesmerized by it, that I just had to see it again. I did just that and it improved even greater on itself. This is what films should be; great characters and a gripping story along with perfect directing and acting. It really blows that it wasn't nominated for any major Oscars though.

Finally got around to seeing this. Wish I had that time and money back (100 minutes & $1.60).

Wonderful performances all around. Visually stunning with excellent cinematography and stylish color scheme.
And above all, finally an action movie that keeps the pacing on the slow side, just right.

One of the best and most original films in years. Don't go into it expecting something like Fast & The Furious. It's just pure story.

I couldn't have said it better myself. This movie does not try to be an action movie. It's a thriller, so it has an occasional action scene, but it's mainly story and characters. It also has awesome music, just had to say that. :)

Just finished it. Style to burn, but otherwise, I thought it was merely "okay". For me, nothing in the rest of the film matched the opening getaway scene - which was awesome - so it blew its load in the first ten minutes.

Yeah, I don't think it's 'one of the most amazing movies evar made' either. It's decent, it's enjoyable, but not much more in my eyes.

Believe the hype. It may not be the best film of 2011, but it comes close.

One of the best I've ever seen. Yes, it's in my top 10. I'm surprised myself.

Drive is one of the most original,unique and entertaining films of the 21st century thus far. It's one of my favorite movies ever. You either love it or you hate it. I love it.

This has the same tagline as 'No Country for Old Men'.

I really liked the whole heroic vibe throughout the movie. The ending was just perfect, imo.

Not bad. Solid soundtrack. The tone felt a little off at times.

Dull, pretentious and artsy. It would've made a better music video than a 95 minute movie!

Really... this movie has a global ranking of 325. Give me a break it's good but not that good.

Highly-stylised neon-noir with a killer soundtrack and a violent kill-count. Featuring an intimidating performance from Albert Brooks.

Top 10 film of the decade, a giant masterpiece and Gosling's magnum opus... not sure if he'll ever top Drive
