    My God. This film is awful. Stallone was an awkward presence in Formula 1 circles during the late 90's when he was seriously considering making a movie about the world's most exotic sport. Thankfully it was eventually deemed too expensive, and instead he turned his attention to the world of CART - America's own cut-price version of Formula 1. Stallone plays a washed-up ex-race driver, which is hilarious in itself. Anyway, the plot is neither here nor there, it's just plain bad. But what is truly awful about this film, and also a slap in the face to all race fans, are the action sequences. Both CART and Indylight cars are used to film the racing scenes, and as any race fan could tell you, the difference between the two is like chalk and cheese. Imagine filming a single-prop Cessna as stand in for 747 Jumbo. Or having Kevin James play Superman to Cavill's Clark Kent. It's that bad. Expand

    This has to be one of the worst movies about car racing and sports in general. The only bright spot in this movie is Sly and solid racing sequences that help you forget for a while how silly this movie really is.

  1. Driven is recommended only to those gentle souls who want to know what it looks like to crash into a wall at 200 mph.

    It's not quite as bad as "Cutthroat Island," I'll grant you, but it's woefully close.
  3. Stallone's script is well structured, though the jaw-droppingly banal dialogue gives us little reason to care.
