Drive Angry Reviews

February 28, 2011
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.

So awful it's almost great. But no, it's just awful.

Cage passes the torch to the next generation of scene-chewing actors as he's graciously out-Caged by both Burke and shark-eyed William Fichtner as The Accountant

It's actually refreshing that Lussier and Farmer don't belabor the film's internal mythology of satanic cults, hell and the devil's administrative assistants.

Being stoned or otherwise buzzed might help.

Great title -- shame about the movie.

Drive Angry is pure grindhouse, so committed to its own junkiness that it is, in its way, a pleasure to behold.

Another John Milton wrote: "Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven." Cage's character would concur, heartily, before reloading.

Even at its most lurid, though, the movie is a little dull. And it only gets less compelling as the backstory fills in.
February 25, 2011
It's the worst kind of bad: Boring bad.
February 25, 2011
It must be handed to Nicolas Cage. He continues to boldly go where few actors willingly do: the Dumpster. His career now is almost completely reverse-engineered.
February 25, 2011
It's hard to care when the CGI is so obvious and Cage's character so clearly invincible.

February 25, 2011
Makes a loud, incoherent but oddly compelling case for the enhancing effects of stereoscopic projection on certain treasured objects of the cinematic gaze, like classic Detroit muscle cars, women's breasts and Nicolas Cage.

A trio of stridently weird performances -- from Nicolas Cage, William Fichtner, and David Morse -- brighten this otherwise rote actioner.
February 25, 2011
Cage has forged his own hell, and it's called: the movies he's addicted to making, even when they trash his brand.

Drive Angry is a Steve Vai solo album of a movie, never letting a second pass without asserting its awesomeness, and thus rarely being awesome.

Drive Angry 3-Dis a movie so wantonly ridiculous, so aggressively stupid, it demands you make fun of it.

February 25, 2011
Sharp 3D lensing and low-octane camp humor help rev up Drive Angry.
February 25, 2011
There's hellfire and hot rods aplenty here, but a mindless exploitation entry that should have been appallingly awesome instead marshals too little style or intentional humor.
February 25, 2011
I can't say I enjoyed it. But I can appreciate it. It offends every standard of taste except bad. But it is well made.

It is hard to imagine Drive Angry sustaining this level of trash-tastic hysterical hokum, and I regret to inform you that it does not, even with all of the above in 3-D.

I just wonder if these resources couldn't have been used for something, you know, actually good?

To its shameless credit, Drive Angry has a knack for stacking its clichés in mind-boggling arrangements.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 24, 2011
A movie that could have left skid marks on our psyche - in 3-D no less - instead drives us to distraction with verbose line readings that kill momentum worse than a police flashlight shining through a parked windshield.

'Drive Angry' is a mish-mash of familiar elements, but it's all lashed together with such relentless drive, blunt invention and pitch-black wit that it's hard not to get dragged along by it.
