Among the scathing reviews thus far:
"Getaway might have been enjoyable as a mindless bit of dumb, late-summer entertainment if it had been vaguely coherent." - Christy Lemire (ChristyLemire)
"[A] video game posing as a movie, a preposterously plotted kidnapping story starring a high-performance Mustang." - Sheri Linden (Los Angeles Times)
"Getaway" could have been an excellent two-minute film." - Stephanie Merry (Washington Post)
""Getaway" is so bad that what's most surprising about it is that Nicolas Cage didn't manage to star in it." - Kyle Smith (New York Post)
"As a moviegoer, I am not against car chases, but I generally like some movie wrapped around them." - Cathy Jakicic (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
"One can only guess why Ethan Hawke felt compelled to make a high dive from the sublimity of "Before Midnight" into the twisted rubble of "Getaway." - Stephen Holden (New York Times)
