One of the best chases is in this stylish noir

The chase scenes from this film are the best car stunts I've seen in films till now. The routes they take and how the police cars are lead into kind of traps reminded me of NFS, those games must have a lot of reference from these films. With the nameless driver, for that matter, there is not a single character with a name here, the minimal approach and the opening chase all points to where Drive got its main inspiration from. Bruce Dern as the detective is the most annoying cop ever with his overconfidence that borders on psychopathic nature. This stylish noir needs to be more well known when films like Drive and Baby Driver are a huge success.

Effective in its abstract approach.

"The Driver" is broadly similar to Walter Hill's previous movies, in that the story is about as streamlined as it gets and that the characters are rather faceless and non-descript. All these components work to the films advantage. That way, we don't get burdened by any pointless subplots. The story comes down to Ryan O' Neal as the driver vs Bruce Dern as the cop who is on the case of a spate of bank robberies that have occurred in the city. Although the cop represents law and order, he isn't above being corrupt and is a rather arrogant man. There are only about 4 other characters involved and this works also. There is a fair measure of action and the car chase scenes are very well handled. I enjoyed the twist to the tale and the whole film has a good sense of style.

An undying action-thriller classic

Walter Hill's "The Driver" from 1978 contains some of the greatest scenes ever filmed with a speeding car. They are still much exhilarating.

I've come to believe that you cannot really understand the origins of modern American action without having watched Hill's variations on the action theme from the 70's and 80's. For a genre that's usually so dependent on effects, it's impressive to see how Hill managed to create some undying classics long before the power of modern visual effects.

Apart from the amazing car scenes, the movie benefits from a strong performance by Bruce Dern and a still-cool Ryan O'Neal. The film is tight and thrilling, never wasting a minute or loosing pace. 39 years after its premiere, it still feels fresh.
