So when you’re in a plane for hours and hours, you end up watching stuff that you wouldn’t while on terra firma. Getaway is an action/car flick featuring Ethan Hawke and a thoroughly implausible Selena Gomez; Hawke is an ex-racecar driver who has his wife taken hostage and has to drive around town doing random things and evading police for a guy on the phone, Gomez is a tech-savvy kid who ends up in the car with him – they exchange insults and try to figure out what’s going on.

It’s a passable action movie, while the car stunts look great (especially a single-shot scene towards the end), the storyline doesn’t build or deliver a satisfying payoff.
