With this being the last Holiday weekend in Summer you’d hope for a good movie this weekend after a long Summer of blockbusters. ‘Getaway’ does nothing to engage movie goers this weekend. There’s some good action scenes that are a little reminiscent of ‘Fast & Furious’ yet this movie in no way compares to the F&F franchise. The storyline is weak (most of the scenes are in the car); Selena’s acting is weak; I expected more from Ethan Hawke and especially Jon Voight. The movie ends trying to set up a sequel yet if they don’t recast the entire movie and write a new script, the sequel will fail as I predict this one will. I did recognize Rebecca Budig of ABC’s All My Children in the movie; she portrays the wife Ethan’s character. Don’t waste your money on this one.
