Sam Peckinpah's The Getaway is a big, glossy, impersonal mechanical toy. It's like one of those devices for executive desks, with the stainless steel balls on the strings: It functions with great efficiency but doesn't accomplish anything.

The action and the violence of The Getaway are supported by no particular themes whatsoever. The movie just unravels.
