wow.lots of action,some brutal violence,even some black comedy thrown into the mix.oh,yeah,also some steamy love scenes and some double crosses.that pretty much describes "The Getaway".for me,all this is a good thing.at least,it works in this movie.there's a great cast,who all put in great performances.Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger play the two lead characters,with great supporting work from Micheal Madsen,James Woods,Jeniffer Tilly and Richard Farnsworth.if you like a action packed movie and don't mind brutal violence and nudity or foul language(there's a lot of that in here)you should enjoy this 1.as an added bonus,there are a couple of twists and,like i mentioned earlier,some black humour.myself,i really had a good time with this movie.i give "The Getaway" 9/10

The Synopsis for The Getaway (1994) 1080p
Doc McCoy is put in prison because his partners chickened out and flew off without him after exchanging a prisoner with a lot of money. Doc knows Jack Benyon, a rich "business"-man, is up to something big, so he tells his wife (Carol McCoy) to tell him that he's for sale if Benyon can get him out of prison. Benyon pulls some strings and Doc McCoy is released again. Unfortunately he has to cooperate with the same person that got him to prison.

lots of action in this 1Reviewed bydisdressed12Vote: 9/10
Let me start by saying that I have not seen the original, 1972 version of "The Getaway". As a result, this critique for the 1994 version will concentrate solely on the impressions it left me after having viewed it, without any references and comparisons with the original one.
"The Getaway" is a typical action film, in which the two main heroes, Doc McCoy (Baldwin), and his sexy wife, Carol (Basinger), are being double-crossed by their gang mates; although it involves several smaller sub-plots, the movie is mainly showing us the couple being on the run, as they are trying to flee from successive unpleasant situations.
The idea of the storyline does not sound very novel, and indeed it is not. And yet, although the movie has a "have-seen-it-several-times-before" taste, it does work and it is quite enjoyable.
Donaldson's direction keeps the story rolling fast, and yet successfully avoiding to overdo the action scenes. As far as the acting is concerned, the duo does a fair job, with Bassinger proving us that she has also some substance apart from her splendid looks; I liked also Madsen in his role as the archetypal bad guy, while Woods has a small but well-acted appearance as the rich mobster.
To sum this up, "The Getaway" may not be a masterpiece, yet it offers two entertaining hours. 6/10.
The Getaway is a remake of the 1970s movie with the same name starring Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw. This time around with some minor changes the movie comes out pretty aggressively with excellent action scenes. The chemistry between Baldwin and Basinger sizzles as does the action in the sweltering Arizona and Texas deserts.James Woods and David Morse are pretty debonair as smartly dressed villains not to mention the brute character depiction of Rudy by Michael Madsen which he repeats in Reservoir Dogs many years later. The story is pretty good but character development and dialogues are pretty weak. Though no one can replace McQueen, Baldwin's caper is not that far behind.
