    The appeal of Drive Angry is much the same as that of "Piranha": a willingness to revel in absurdity to the degree where the exhilaration is infectious.

    There's even a shootout sequence that plays out, from start to finish, while our hero is in flagrante. That's something I don't believe I've ever seen in a movie.

    Despite amply funded f/x, including some spectacular muscle-car stunts, the movie motors to the grindhouse with squealing tires and guitars, gratuitous nudity and gore, and a scantily clad greasy-spoon waitress endearingly played by Amber Heard.

    Heard sets herself up as a Megan Fox with talent. And Cage? He delivers. Mock him for his bad choices if you will, but consider this. Who else could have made this work, or would even want to?

"Drive Angry 3D" is a revenge exploitation (Not sure of that) film about....revenge. It's excessive with blood and gore as well as hell. The story goes up the hill with inane 3D effects as well as the arrogant dialogue, but you'll like it thanks to the sexy Amber Heard and a cool ass Nicholas Cage (Ya know, Nicholas Cage could actually continue his career with acting in B-grade movies like these) . Overall I would advise you to rent it, but watch it with pure fun. R) 5.5 Full Review »

    I don't know how much more the big screen can take from an increasingly timeworn, disheveled action star, whose movie roles are as hit-or-missI don't know how much more the big screen can take from an increasingly timeworn, disheveled action star, whose movie roles are as hit-or-miss as his receding hairline; though not all to blame. "Drive Angry" is a bottom-rung action flick that comes up short--never seizing any sort of connection with its viewers; lacking any sort of directorial control, intactful character progression and substance, shoddy special effects, and overdone, often intolerant lewdness situated amongst the most unbelieving of circumstances. The film is host to a lasting effect of shortcoming; creating a smutty after taste of despondency and a near failure of a movie. The result, a plethora of plot holes and ambiguity camouflaged by shots of pneumatic rears, bouncing breasts, and overall insipidness. Full Review »
