The chase is on. Academy Award® nominee Ethan Hawke (Training Day) stars in this gritty, high-octane action thriller alongside actress/music sensation Selena Gomez and Oscar® winner Jon Voight (Coming Home). Hawke stars as a former racecar driver, working against the clock and forced into a dangerous mission behind the wheel. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, he commandeers a fast car and its unwitting owner (Gomez), taking them on a high-speed race against time at the command of the unseen mysterious assailant (Voight) holding his wife hostage and watching his every move. To save his wife, he took the job. To keep her alive, he'll take control.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Monotonously fast-paced to the point of exhaustion, Getaway offers a reminder of the dangers in attempting to speed past coherent editing, character development, sensible dialogue, and an interesting plot.

Lackluster action flick has too many smashed cars to count.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Getaway is a near-nonstop car chase from beginning to end. Ethan Hawke stars as a former race car driver whose wife has been kidnapped. The villain instructs him to drive a customized sports car on a specific route, plowing through crowded pedestrian malls, eluding the cops, causing all sorts of mayhem, and destroying too many vehicles to count. Selena Gomez co-stars as an unwilling passenger who becomes his ally. There's a bit of swearing ("s--t," "ass," etc.) and some serious product placement for the Shelby Super Snake -- the muscle car that's the real star of the film -- but the real issue is the constant loud crashing and destruction.
