REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

4 of 5

“..there's also plenty of blood-letting, standoffs, shootouts and wordless mini-meditations on men and criminality..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3 of 4

“..the minimal dialogue does lead to a few too many fussy/busy "actorly" moments. But they have collaborated on a car picture that unnerves us with its idling quiet, and then pins our ears back when they stomp the accelerator..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the film seems to have almost sprung into life as a coiled, confident and closed-off man..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..plans go awry, and the driver is on the run, using his skills, wits and a horror movie villain's relentless force to achieve his goals..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
4 of 5

“..it's such a smooth, good-looking ride that you'll put up with the annoyances..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
“..it's opens with what might be its most successful, least violent set piece, a getaway from a robbery choreographed to quietly insistent techno music..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
Review rate : B+

“..it's a visually and aurally edgy Euro-influenced American genre movie about the coolness of noir-influenced American genre movies about the coolness of driving - especially in L.A...”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..it's a fun, if not exhilarating, ride, one sped along with the help of a wonderfully assembled cast..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
3.5 of 4

“..it shows that movies can generate a testosterone-and-adrenaline cocktail without requiring viewers to undergo a frontal lobotomy to appreciate the result..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..is a sleek, tense piece of work that, as a vehicle for Ryan Gosling, has a kind of daredevil control, swerving dangerously close to and abruptly away from self-parody..”
by J. Hoberman [Village Voice]

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
