I have seen quite a few movies that use a similar plot vehicle. Gone In 60 Seconds, Transporter and most recently Faster and while they were all your typical cookie cutter car centric action films they redeemed themselves with either good acting or spectacular chases. Drive looks to go beyond fancy driving and give the viewers a deeper film. I am not a fan of Ryan Gosling aka Baby Goose ( Thanks Filmdrunk) and I feel that his acting fits romantic films more than crime dramas. His work in Drive looks to break that stigma and sadly I admit he may just do it.
