This movie is by far the best film to come out this year. Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan star in this extremely rare and unique film that is sort of about the quest for love and survival. The movie is very special in the way that it is made, I do not want to share the plot with you because I believe you should see this film knowing nothing about the story whatsoever when you go into it. There is a ton of awesome violent, but necessary action that contains some shock value. You must know that this really is not an action film or at least not like any one you have ever seen before. With all of the violence and gore that is in this film it still remains an art film and is at a slower pace. It will not be what you are expecting at all. Gosling gives a quiet and mesmerizing performance and Mulligan is stellar. This is the best performance of her entire career. As great as the acting is it is the awesome and special story, cinematography, and editing that keep you at the edge of your seat. There has never been such a great balance between artistry and just pure brutal action since, "A History Of Violence." This movie is even better then that. You care a lot more about the characters, it is short, sweet, and it hits you real hard. This is one of the best mainstream films to come out in a long while and with this never heard of before director, Nicolas Winding Refn coming out of nowhere displaying his talent for style and pure umph. I could sit right back down and watch this again. See this in theaters before it leaves. Drive will capture you with its performances and all around quality, and will stay in your mind long after you leave the theater.

5 out of 5 Stars
