  1. It’s actually just called Getaway, not The Getaway. 😉 And the ’72 film was already remade in 1994 with Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger. (back when they were married)

    It looks like your standard big car chase film, it could be good or it could be bad. Though, it is nice to see a film coming out where they didn’t over spend on special effects and “talent” to the point where they sacrifice the plot of the film to the CGI effects. At only $18 million, it’s practically a low budget film by today’s standards. 😉

    • Opps I’ve corrected that.

      This is not a remake of the 72 film but a new story. It’s just using the same title. (Well it was bound to happen at some point. 😉 )

      Yeah it does look like your standard car chase film.
      Films relay to much on CGI to much these days.
      I agree it should be used to help a story line.
      It’s a shame Sci-fi use to be like that but since the era of CGI they seemed to have move away from that and be all about the CGI.

      • Yes, I know it’s a different story. I was merely pointing out that the ’72 film has already been remade. (unsuccessfully, I might add)
