I love it when an entire movie theater gets mad.
Especially if I could see it coming from the moment the lights went down.
Marketed as a Fast and Furious ripoff, more brain-dead car porn, this moody-beyond-reason flick is the opposite of what most ticket buyers expected.
Yes, Ryan Gosling plays a slick-driving getaway man, but he’s a troubled, hyper-violent car jockey, a man with few morals, but a very strict personal code.
That gets him in trouble with low-life mobsters as the film spirals to a bleak finale.
At the end, the crowd was pissed. Me, I was thrilled.
