"Getaway" movie quotes follow the high-speed action in the thriller about a man tasked with performing a heist for a mysterious telephone voice in exchange for the safe return of his wife. Gregg Maxwell Parker and Sean Finegan penned the screenplay for the film which was directed by Courtney Solomon. "Getaway" opened in theaters on August 30, 2013, in the United States.

In "Getaway," Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) receives a strange message over the video console in his customized Mustang Shelby and learns that his wife, Leanne (Rebecca Budig), has been kidnapped. He also receives a phone call from a mysterious voice (Jon Voight) who explains to Brent that he was chosen for this because of his expertise in fast driving. The Voice goes on to note that in order for Leanne to live and be returned safely, Brent must steal something from a bank, drive it out of town, evade the police which will be chasing him and complete it all in a short amount of time.

With few other options, Brent agrees to the deal and sets out to complete the tasks necessary to rescue Leanne. His progress is soon slowed when a young girl, known as The Kid (Selena Gomez), joins in on the mission after her failed attempt to carjack him. The pair work together to complete the tasks but it isn't easy, especially since they have no idea who they are working for and if the Voice will even hold up his end of the bargain in the end.

If "Getaway" makes you want to get far away from it, there are many other great films to see instead such as "Drinking Buddies," "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," "Paranoia," "Kick-Ass 2," "We're the Millers, "Elysium," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," "2 Guns," "Blue Jasmine," "The Wolverine," "The To Do List," "Only God Forgives," "Girl Most Likely," "Red 2," "R.I.P.D.," "Pacific Rim," "World War Z," "Man of Steel," "This Is the End," and "Olympus Has Fallen."

    The Voice: "I'm going to make you an offer. Do exactly as I say and your wife lives. Refuse or get caught, the game is over. She dies. It seems like an obvious choice to me but I give you a moment to think about it. You answer, Mr. Magna?"
    Brent Magna: "I want my wife back."
    The Voice: "Rule #1: There is a package at the bank. Steal it and get it out of the city. Rule #2: The police will be after you. Don't get caught. If they catch you ever, the game's over. Is that clear? Rule #3: You have two hours. The clock is ticking."

    The Voice details the deal he is offering Brent. He must steal something from a bank and deliver it outside of town. To complicate matters, he cannot get caught by the police and has only a short time to complete this task or his wife dies.
