The movie talks less but shows more.

The story opens with a robbery in a casino and soon after the car chase begins between cops and the robbers. It reminds us like the game we played 'nfs most wanted' which was long lost for around 15 minutes. As it was a 70s movie those car stunts were stunning. As like the beginning 15 minutes last 15 minutes too had similar car stunts, so it opens and ends like a bang!

There's an arrogant cop who challenges the driver to catch him red hand in next robbery. So the story turns from robbery concept to a game... a challenge... a chase to the death between the driver and the detective. Now its between them and other characters surrounded them.

The weirdest was the movie characters had no names, the wheelman is called 'the driver', the cop is called 'the detective', money la” read more

25 From 78: My Favorite Films Of 1978 (25 movies items)

"In 2011, one of the films that appeared on most critic's "Best Of The Year" lists was Drive, starring Ryan Gosling & Albert Brooks. And while I thought it was a solid enough flick, the truth is, I was bit underwhelmed. I was hoping more of what could've been an update of this 1978 Ryan O'Neal vehicle, The Driver. A gritty crime film about a bait & catch plot to catch a criminal-for-hire driver-with-no-name (now that's what you call a job description!). Now, I'm sure it comes off kind of sha"

Filmsite's Greatest Chase Scenes in Film History (83 movies items)

" In the opening scene, the existential hero simply named the Driver (Ryan O'Neal) stole a prospective client's 4-door Mercedes V-8 Sedan and then auditioned his skills. He showed the three terrified bad guys how talented he was as a freelance, ace getaway driver/wheelman for bank heists. He plowed through a cramped, underground parking garage and narrow alleyways in LA to demonstrate his prowess and prove that he was worth every penny of his high-priced fee. The film had three spectacular car "

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2013 (495 movies items)

"27.6 Samaa luokkaa Winding Refnin Driven kanssa, ellei jopa hieman parempi. Vaikkei ihan niin syvällisiä henkilökontakteja tässä saa. Sen sijaan loistavat takaa - ajoskenaariot ovat vertaansa vailla ja pelkistetty ja yksinkertaistettu tarina on mitä parhain. Öinen tunnelma nappaa heti mukaansa ja puolitoistatuntinen menee kuin siivillä katselessa suorastaan hypnoosiin laittavia takaa - ajoja."

"15.6. Pidin tästä todella. On aina hienoa nähdä Melville-vaikutteista amerikkalaista rikoselokuvaa, jossa on lainattu oikeat asiat muualta ja toteutettu kaikki ammattitaitoisesti. Edellisillan jättämä väsymys ei paina tätä eksistentialistista, jännittävää ammattilaisten välistä ajojahtia seuratessa. Hypnoottisia takaa-ajokohtauksia ihastellessa se on melkeinpä etu."

Films I've Seen In 2013 - Best To Worst (71 movies items)

" The film that inspired Nicolas Winding Refn's 2011 film, 'Drive', 'The Driver' is an iconic and stylish movie in its own right. It's easy to see where Refn took his influences from (a 360° hallway shot is lifted directly from this film). Ryan O'Neal's Driver is just as enigmatic as his successor, Ryan Gosling, an aloof, introverted individual involved in a violent game of cat and mouse with bent detective, Bruce Dern and beautiful, if mysterious, witness, Isabelle Adjani (her English-language"
