I wouldn't want to reveal anything else about the plot, though, because I feel like it's best to go into the film not knowing what to expect, like I did. I knew nothing about the plot of the film and it really surprised me.
The likes of Cranston and Brooks are all talented actors in their own rights, but here they seem dulled by a weak script. One thing I did enjoy was the soundtrack.

Accompanied by his auto shop owner boss in Bryan Cranston, the two get involved in a heist which leads to an ill advised love interest, an out of patience hot headed mafia boss, a blood soaked hotel room and a slight altercation in an elevator. Ryan Gosling plays ‘The Driver’s’ strong and silent type perfectly and with the scorpion embalmed jacket he evokes the use of the Scorpion and the Frog fable. Nicolas Winding Refn’s ultra cool Drive has Gosling as a man equally as suited to a certain Sergio Leone western trilogy and along with an electronic pop soundtrack this made Drive a revelation at Cannes in 2011.
