Could Only God Forgives be more violent than Drive?

May. 25, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Nicolas Winding Refn's DRIVE instantly jumped into my favorite movies the moment I saw it. It was stylish, violent, and had an amazing soundtrack. Even now, when I listen to it, it makes me feel like driving really fast.

With the news that Refn and Ryan Gosling would be reteaming in ONLY GOD FORGIVES, I was excited. After seeing the photo of Gosling smashed to bits, I was more excited. Now, listening to someone break down the footage at Cannes, I am beyond excited.

Here is the breakdown of the footage shown:

The camera finds a room in what now seems to be a club of some sort, possibly a high-end strip club. Two Thai men in white suits sit laughing on a long couch in one corner, Gosling sits in another staring at a nervous looking girl holding a microphone. She’s not singing or looking like she’s about to sing, just standing there looking sad and lost in her thoughts.

Gosling stands abruptly, walks calmly over to the two Thai men having a good time and proceeds to smash one of the men’s drinks into this face, shattering the glass against his teeth.

Punches are thrown, Gosling dominating the fight, which continues out into the hall where Gosling grabs the hurt man by THE MOUTH (he’s lying on the floor, gasping in pain and Gosling just goes ahead and sticks his hand into the dude’s mouth and drags him down the hall by his upper jaw) and throws him out of the building.

The man’s friend kicks Gosling from behind, they brawl and Gosling ends up not only beating them both, he decides that’s not enough and removes his belt and starts a-whippin’.

Sweet lord, that sounds badass.  Prior to DRIVE, Gosling was not one of the actors that I had much faith in, but now I will sign up for whatever films he goes with.  Let the ladies swoon over his body, I will enjoy watching him smash some skulls while wearing a scorpion jacket.

There is no release date for ONLY GOD FORGIVES yet, but expect to hear about it as soon as we know.

How could you ever doubt Gosling!

Prior to DRIVE, Gosling was not one of the actors that I had much faith in. ??? Really ? Did you not catch him in Blue Valentine, Crazy, Stupid, Love, Lars and the Real Girl, Half Nelson? He was spectacular in all of those.

if you weren't checking for Gosling before Drive then you should really go rent the Believer.

Yeah, hard to say you don't have much faith in gosling with movies like the believer and half nelson under his belt, plus let's not pretend we don't all love the notebook :). Drive was one of my favorite movie going experiences of last year, but somehow one of my least favorite repeat viewings, but this sounds great.

Lars And The Real Girl is real good

Come on, haven't any of you seen him in Lars And The Real Girl? When I saw it in some little rep theatre, I literally bawled at the ending. Rent it tonight!

Just the description of that scene really describes Goslings character, and the violence sounds fantastic!

The very basic plotline of this movie doesn't sound interesting at all. But given that Drive was my favorite movie of last year, with an equally unimpressive plotline, I'm excited for this movie.

With that said I'd be pretty disappointed if Gosling played another stoic character in this movie who happens to have a crazy violent streak. Judging from the description in the news story, let's hope he's not stoic!

What still floors me even now is I remember this guy when he was a kid on MMC and liked the guy in whatever he was in, sans Young Hercules, I think he'll do fine in this as he has in his other movies.

Oh, man! This sounds fantastic. Ryan Gosling is possibly the only one who could pull this off.

Well the only reason I enjoyed Drive was because of how violent it was, especially the elevator scene. Other than that i found that dragged a lil at times & is a tad bit overrated. Certainly much better than the extremely overrated Warrior that people got hards on for last year.

While Drive is amongst the best films I've seen in years, I do agree that Warrior wasnt even half the film it was made up to be on this website. I don't understand how so many so called movie lovers can be so impacted by a film that is ridden with cliches and poor directing.

I found Drive to be pretty boring and predictable. Especially once you met Perlman's character and the neighbor's husband (which only took about 3000 years to get to). This AND Warrior are movies that are highly overrated and cliched. Especially since Drive was a kind of a mentally challenged homage to Michael Mann's 80's movies.
