Ryan Gosling plays The Drivers strong and silent type perfectly and with the scorpion embalmed jacket he evokes the use of the Scorpion and the Frog fable.
There's a driving sequence near the beginning of the film shot almost entirely from the inside of the car that completely blew my mind and was instantly one of my favorite scenes in any film.
The "Action" crowd like this movie because it's a crime movie, it has stupid CG blood effects, a completely unnecessary topless scene, Breaking Bad Guy, Hellboy Dude, and and Ryan Gosling as a loner with little to say, but asses to kick.
