“Brutal car chases & some nifty 3D effects collectively make it a one-time watch!”
One poor soul from the theatre must be driving back very angry after watching this film. He was waiting for Nicolas Cage & Amber Heard to make out. Every time they were together he would yell and I paraphrase ab toh karo yaar.
When you are not aware of anything about the film you are about to watch there are chances of a few surprises being thrown at you. Drive Angry gave me the impression that its in the space of Gone in 60 seconds, Fast & the Furious and other films of its kind. The film is about a father who has escaped from Hell to save his granddaughter from a religious cult lead by Jonah King (Billy Burke from Twilight). Director Patrick Lussier mixes religious mumbo jumbo & action to come up with something which is at times laugh out loud funny for the plot and to stay true to the title, there are plenty of car chases thrown in. Going by his past records he seems to have stuck with heaven & hell stories.
Nicolas cage looks like he has walked out from his previous movies right into playing another role stitched from the same cloth. Just by having him in the film can make a film appear dull & lazy because that is what he brings to the film as an actor. He is like the Akshay Kumar of Hollywood doing the same roles again and again with the same repetitive expressions and dialogue delivery. Amber Heard does her part well but the director doesnt exploit her for the purpose the writer put her in there. Atleast that poor soul and the likes of him would have been happy if there was some skin show but whatever is there is brutally cut by the censors. Whole chunk of sequences are gone from the film. The guy who entertains the most is William Fichtner as The Accountant (From Hell). He is the only who looks like he is having fun doing what he is doing.
Final few words: Watch It on DVD on a hot Sunday afternoon for some cool action sequences & some silly laughs.
