The night before the biggest job of his career, a hard-working family man who made one big mistake does everything in his power to make things right as the clock ticks down.
So the gimmick here is that the whole movie takes place within the confines of this dude’s car and it’s basically just him driving on the highway while taking calls for 85 minutes. I can appreciate how some of you might not find the appeal to this gimmick and that the whole things suddenly sounds boring as sin. You’d be surprised. Helps that I’m all for movies that manage to do a lot with a little and challenge themselves to deliver right out the gate, but even if you don’t share my enthusiasm in those areas or care about, say, the inner-workings of laying concrete (because you’ll get an earful), it’s still a surprisingly gripping movie that, to no one’s surprise, Tom Hardy just owns. If you’re looking for something different, you could do a whole lot worse.
It’s got a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.
