Feels like an affectionate remake of an obscure 1978 Roger Corman production that might have been called "Hot Pants and the Devil Driver."

There's a thin line between clever and stupid. NIc Cage walks it.

Performances, especially from William Fichtner and Amber Heard, are great and the 3D is pretty solid, but that's about all I can say for Drive Angry 3D in terms of positive aspects of the film.

There isn't much to Vancouver-raised director Patrick Lussier's film besides mayhem and muscle cars, but he sure gets those things right.

A little respect, please, for His Satanic Majesty, Nicolas Cage. Nobody else could have made this work, or would have wanted to.

Drive Angry is very obviously Nicolas Cage embracing his own ridiculousness, or - in language invented by Bad Lieutenant director Werner Herzog - "releasing the pigs".

[Drive Angry 3D] ends up failing pretty badly as it doesn't even come close to being a grindhouse film or entertaining.

A rather straightforward supernatural-heroism tale straining oh-so-very-hard to be indecent.

The film is saved, not by its star, but by a supporting turn from William Fichtner as The Accountant, an underworld bounty hunter stalking Milton's every move.

It hits the sweet spots of Loony Tunes sex, violence, cars and exploding things more often than it misses.

Whereas the recent Machete managed to both pay homage to its celluloid ancestors while emerging as an entertaining movie in its own right, this one ultimately proves to be a drag, getting off to a gleeful start before losing its way.

This is entertainment, grind house style, polished up a bit.

I love grindhouse throwbacks, I really do. I just wish the big studios would get it right for once...

Delivers...car- and revenge-porn. No surprise there, but nothing of much interest either. Especially coming after the carnage of so much pulpy fiction, backstories and explanations drag, while gestures towards emotion seem pointless.

Drive Angry a tedious ride.

If there's a movie more devoid of raison d'Ítre than this, I haven't seen it.
