Sylvester Stallone's homoerotic car-racing actioner delivers something between Speed Racer and gay porn.

Why waste your quarters on the video games in the mall when you can pay $10 to see the same thing on the big screen?

Driven is one of those wince-inducing movies that makes you wonder if every single person involved was deliberately trying to embarrass themselves.

Driven, to put it bluntly, makes Days of Thunder look like Citizen Kane on Wheels.

Pushing his pointless technique way ahead of any kind of content-to say nothing of drama -- Harlin eliminates any danger of intimacy.

Gas -- the hot air variety -- is exactly what Driven is made of.

In his first solo writing credit since Rocky V (1990), Stallone has turned out an old-fashioned sports drama that thrives by knowing when to wallow in clichés and when to turn them on their heads.

But for all its remarkable technology, Driven can't escape the cliches of the genre.

When the film predictably limps across the finish line, you're left with the impression your time would have been better spent sitting in traffic.

A race-car drama full of flashy but empty images and a soundtrack that makes you feel as if you're being shaken on a motel rumblebed.

Though Harlin's skill compensates for a lot of narrative preposterousness, even it is overmatched this time around.

Even fans of open-wheel racing, the high-speed, high-stress pastime that is the subject of Renny Harlin's hectic new film, may walk away from it more logy than exhilarated.

A slick, simplistic, and laughable effort that's reminiscent of a bad Jerry Bruckheimer film. A really bad Bruckheimer film.

The target audience of men, young and old, will admire the pedal-to-the-metal action and not be in the least bit put off by its rudimentary characters and silly plot dynamics.

Driven is mostly preposterous, and it has no dramatic center, but the racing scenes hold you in their death-trip grip.
