Drive Film

The Driver

File:TropeDriver 6112.jpg

 Played By: Ryan Gosling

"If I drive for you, you get your money. You tell me where we start, where we're going, where we're going afterwards. I give you five minutes when we get there. Anything happens in that five minutes and I'm yours. No matter what. Anything a minute on either side of that and you're on your own. I don't sit in while you're running it down. I don't carry a gun. I drive."

"You know, we're here celebrating but it's a shameful thing... what I did. And I have a lot of making up to do to everyone. But second chances are rare. Right? And that's worth celebrating."

Bernie Rose

 Played By: Albert Brooks

"My partner is a belligerent asshole with his back up against a wall, and now, so am I."


File:TropeNino 8924.jpg

 Played By: Ron Perlman

"Take a fucking hike. I want to talk to my partner. [pause] I'm just fucking with you. How you doing, Shannon? How's the fucking leg?"

  • Big Bad Wannabe: He's certainly an intimidating criminal, but he wants more.
  • The Dragon: Sort of to Bernie. They're pretty much on equal footing, but Bernie is smarter and savvier. Nino tends to be more subservient to Bernie and doesn't seem able to succeed much without him. Played more straight with the East Coast Mafia.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Never seen firsthand in the movie, but he was the dog for the East Coast Mafia and his attempt to steal from them is largely motivated by anger.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Thinks he's a charmingly evil criminal boss. He's only three of those four things.
  • Hidden Depths
  • Jerkass
  • Motive Rant
  • Smug Snake
  • Those Two Bad Guys: with Bernie.
  • Too Dumb to Live
