Loved this remake! Only reason it coped so much slack was because of Paris. - survivorfan989

The movie was good.. Paris Hilton was good in it too!

Paris Hilton was the only problem here. Everything else was ok - Alexandr

4 The Getaway (1994) The Getaway (1994) Product Image

Decent but can't be compared to the fantastic Original. Alec Baldwin replacing Steve McQueen? Kim Basinger ( altough a wonderful actress ) can't compete with the outstanding performance of Ali McGraw in this movie. But, yes, a decent remake after all but it can be also that the script and story of this movie is fantastic to begin with. Maybe with less talented actors than A. Baldwin and K. Basinger it would still be a good remake. Who knows?

Decent action with Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin - Alexandr
