Getaway

Ethan Hawke stars as a former race car driver whose wife is kidnapped by Jon Voight’s mouth. Jon Voight’s mouth forces the Hawke character to drive a pimped-out Mustang at top speeds through public gatherings as a condition of getting the wife back. Along the way, Selena Gomez winds up in the car, too, and this is a bad thing for everybody. The movie is essentially a 90-minute car chase made horribly dull by poor editing, a bored Hawke, a shrill Gomez and Jon Voight’s mouth. It’s also worth noting that Hawke’s character is not trying to “get away,” so the movie’s title makes no sense. I have said it before, and I will say it again: Ethan Hawke always does a good job when he’s required to look and act scared. I just like it when he’s all paranoiac and strange in films like Training Day and Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead. He is OK in this movie, as he was in The Purge, with both requiring him to be freaked out. Sadly, these two films also hold the dubious distinction of being two of the year’s worst films.
