* CreepyAwesome: The driver never blinks, has only a few lines of dialogue, and ''barely'' expresses any emotion. The only thing keeping him from being TheSociopath outright is his obvious affection for [[MoralityPet Irene.]] In spite of being walking NightmareFuel, however, he's still a {{badass}}.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Sean Salazar is [[Series/{{Revolution}} Jason Neville]]. Also, Violet Trimble is a pre-''Film/{{Superbad}}'' Creator/EmmaStone.

* RetroactiveRecognition: While Creator/NathanFillion was the headline member of the cast at the time, nowadays people are far more likely to notice Creator/EmmaStone from before her StarMakingRole in ''Film/{{Superbad}}''. J. D. Pardo, who plays Sean Salazar is [[Series/{{Revolution}} Salazar, also went on to play Jason Neville]]. Also, Violet Trimble is a pre-''Film/{{Superbad}}'' Creator/EmmaStone.
Neville on ''Series/{{Revolution}}''.

** Made worse by the obvious OscarBait that did win [[TheArtist best picture and best director.]] Drive is still discussed enthusiastically in many circles while most people know TheArtist as "that black and white movie".

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Most of the score and the song "Real Hero". One of the first works to highlight [[{{Synthwave}}]] artists to a wider audience.

* {{Narm}}: The [[MoodWhiplash elevator scene.]] [[spoiler:How do you follow a very dramatic, slow motion kiss? Apparently with the Driver rapidly stomping on a mook's head ''until his skull visibly caves in.'']]
** It ''heavily'' depends on the person though. For those who are sensitive to [[{{Gorn}} graphic violence]], this scene goes straight into NightmareFuel territory, especially considering that [[spoiler:up until that point, the Driver had only demonstrated TranquilFury, even when he was clearly ''very'' angry about everything that had transpired. In this scene, he finally truly [[NotSoStoic blows]] [[RageBreakingPoint his stack]] and commits an act of horrific violence ''out of nowhere''.]]
*** [[spoiler:While Irene sees it as out of nowhere, the viewer is given the actual reason- while in the elevator, Driver notices a gun in the man's jacket, and puts together that the man's there to kill them.]]

* {{Padding}}: The movie would be an hour long if it weren't for all the shots of characters staring off into space for long periods of time.
** [[TropesAreNotBad On the other hand, a lot of the movie's emotional impact and]] SceneryPorn [[TropesAreNotBad comes from these shots.]]
