Lowdown: A Hollywood stunt driver (Ryan Gosling) moonlights as a getaway driver and becomes entangled with some bad dudes (Bryan Cranston, Ron Perlman, and playing against type, Albert Brooks) and the requisite femme fatale (Christina Hendricks). There's also a good girl as well (Carey Mulligan). It's all brought together by helmer Nicolas Winding Refn (who picked up the directing award at Cannes), who also steered the stripped-down brutality of 2009's "Bronson," which introduced the world to Tom Hardy's biceps.
Grade: A-. Slick, classy trailer with enough gravity to ensure that viewers won't just assume it's a leaner, cheaper and less bombastic "Fast and Furious" film. The car action looks about as good as it gets, but audiences will have to wait to see if it rivals the classic chases seen in "Bullitt," "The French Connection" or Walter Hill's underrated and similar "The Driver."
Release date: September 16.
