Getaway: Film review - grindingly dull and utterly baffling

(12A) Courtney Solomon, 90 mins Starring: Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez

This isn't so much a movie as a glorified stock-car race.

Ethan Hawke plays a former racing driver who has to roar around town in a converted Mustang, following the bidding of The Voice (Jon Voight acting with his chin), whose henchmen have kidnapped his wife.

Selena Gomez is his reluctant passenger. Hawke does his best to make his character believable but the never-ending chases, stunts and crashes soon become grindingly dull and the bank heist plot is utterly baffling.
