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" 4.5/5

Why on earth is the only version of this film available on DVD the Rated version? Isn't getting uncut/unrated versions of movies a staple of the DVD format?

I've never seen the original version of this film, so I have nothing to compare it to. Most of the reviews here are pretty good, but the reviewers weren't kind when it first came out in 1994. I thought the acting by Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin was very good in this. Michael Madsen usually plays these same kind of characters all of the time, but he was actually enjoyable here. I loved that Kim's character more than held her own here and got very violent like everybody else. I can't stand when female characters always have to be saved in action films. The camerawork & pacing is excellent in this film also. My main problem with this film is the story itself. It starts out pretty good for like the first 45 minutes, then starts to get kinda silly once Jennifer Tilly's character shows up. I kept asking myself why would some of the characters do something so dumb thoughtout the movie. I also was able to predict almost everything that happened. That was probably because they had alot of actors who always play bad guys like: James Wood, Michael Madsen, David Morse, and even Alec himself. Note to directors out there, "quit hiring the same actors to play your bad guys all of the time, its starting to get annoying." I just never bought that the guy, who Jennifer's character was married to, ever had a chance of ever getting her. And I know women like bad guys, but I just never bought that she could easily watch Michaels character abuse her husband of 2 years like she did. The action in this film is pretty good I must admit though. Forget about the plot, watch this film for the action and the performances by Kim, Alec, and Michael. Kim's sensual scenes with Alec will have you pausing and hitting the review button alot. It must have been very cold the day they were shooting them, thats all I'll say on it.

It is a fun movie and the scenes between them are extremely hot. The Alec/Kim sandwich is so shocking revealing that you're like---WOW. Its a fun movie, and sometimes movies are simply meant to be fun.

I've just watched " The Getaway" on TV in my home at Hong Kong. This film is not only intriguing, but also extremly exciting! There isn't a single mintue that you'll feel your time be wasted watching the movie.
I just want to say every aspect of the film will not disappoint you. The reason why the movie is not well-known perhaps because the casting stars are not famous enough. Its always like that. To me, all the casting stars are marvellous, story intriguing, the scene exciting, the film song perfect. I'll give it 4.5 star.

The Baldwin/Basinger remake of ' The Getaway ' is a well put together, well acted, entertaining movie. This was not well received upon release, and I can't see why. Baldwin smolders on screen, and his real life chemistry with Basinger ( well, until they divorced ) carries over to the movie. The relationship of their married characters is passionate, and volatile. An excellent scene is when Doc, who can't control his anger any longer after finding out that Carol had slept with bad-guy Benyon ( James Woods ) in a deal for Doc's prison release, stops their car on the side of the road, and they have an intense argument. Great scene. Not to be overlooked is the performance of Michael Madsen as Rudy. He could be Vic Vega's ( from Reservoir Dogs ) dopier cousin. He is a bad guy, yet his scenes with Jennifer Tilly are at times very funny..you'll laugh at what a jerk he can be. The movie has some good action and drama in it, especially the scene when Doc, at the train depot, chases down the small-time thief who has made off with Doc and Carol's bag full of stolen cash. The finale is an excellent shoot-out at a seedy old hotel in El Paso, and it definitely does not disappoint. Much action and tension. The final scene includes the late Richard Farnsworth, and it is touching to see now that he is no longer alive. An excellent Richard Marx song ' Now and Forever ' runs over the end credits, and it works perfectly. Very nice. This is a movie I've seen many times, and always enjoyed. It's executed well, with nice cinematography. Don't believe some of the bad reviews, and judge for yourself. I believe the 1994 version of ' The Getaway ' is an overlooked little gem.
