Any B-level chase movie worth its celluloid has several essential ingredients. Take Getaway. Morally ambiguous yet sympathetic protagonist? Check. Pretty girl? Check. Fast cars? Check. Bad guy with foreign accent? Check. Deep philosophical and inspiring message? Uh … wrong list.
Getaway does not ask you to engage your brain fully, and it is probably best not to. Otherwise, you may find yourself vigorously nodding in agreement when the hero spouts lines like “I can’t believe that worked!”
