A man comes home to find his home destroyed and his wife gone. Without even a minute to collect himself, he receives a call. Steal a certain car and drive or your wife dies! So ex-pro drive Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) finds himself off to the races, with the police on his heels, and a mad man holding his wife hostage at every turn. His reluctant co-pilot in this race, a young woman (Selena Gomez) with a brilliant mind and a very hot temper. Together they must survive a digital warden in hopes of escaping their 4-wheeled jail cell before it becomes their coffin.
I could go on, but that’s about the extent of this plot. "One long chase movie" was spouted by many as I walked out of the theater. And while this is true, many were enthralled by the driving and the destruction. In addition, the plot device of having many cameras attached to the car gave the added option and angle to see more at top speeds. So if you're looking for a Fast and mildly Furious escape from reality, or just love fast cars and lots of crashes; then maybe Getaway is for you.
