The Driver
1978
**½
Director: Walter Hill
Cast: Ryan O’Neal, Bruce Dern, Isabelle Adjani, Ronee Blakley, Matt Clark, Felice Orlandi

This overrated action film gives us one car chase after another, but very little else in terms of plot or characters. Stoneface Ryan O’Neal is a getaway car driver and Bruce Dern is a detective on his trail. Walter Hill’s early effort is a fine example of bare-bones filmmaking, but it’s dull.
