Don't be fooled. This movie is a major crap fest!

1/23/2016: The martial arts were good and Murphy was cute as hell, but the story, dialogue, and acting was pretty bad.

It's quite a long time since I saw this. As far as martial arts-shoot 'em ups go its fine but don't go looking for anything profound.

Drive Is A Perfect Example Of How Chinese Film Making Can Beat The Americans. The Best Martial Arts Film To Be Produced By An American Film Company. A Great Film Which Also Showcases The Excellent Fight Choreography, Which Surpasses Any US Martial Arts Choreography. A Stunning Film From Behind The Camera, Point Of View

I'm a Dacascos fan, I want to see this.

Excellent Movie. Action packed from start to finish, probably the best choreography ever in a martial arts film and clever comic relief with the action, personalities and writing!

Hong Kong's dominance over American action filmmaking didn't stop visual effects wizard-turned-director Steve Wang from creating a film that not only matches the best modern Hong Kong martial arts productions, but surpasses many of them. In fact, it only inspired him. Beyond Wang's vision, the keys to Drive's success are two men; action director Koichi Sakamoto and martial arts star Mark Dacascos. The strengths of this film could have stopped here and the production would have remained a worthy effort, but a very solid script from Scott Phillips and excellent performances from the supporting cast.
I was exciting to see Dacascos makes his incredible kicking, punching, flipping, you name it. He's got speed, power, and grace. Brittany Murphy is perfect as a bubbly brunette armed with salacious charm Deliverance Bodine who manages to pull off being humourous, immature, insane, and desirable all at the same time. and Kadeem Hardison is the film's chief comedian and delivers a regular stream of decent one-liners, mostly adlibbed.
The choreography and execution of fighting is stunning, especially considering the limited time available. All of the fights are outstanding, although the motel brawl and the film's final match are extra special. This is action really done Hong Kong style, old school.

Drive is a perfect mixture of everything that you would like in cinema, and blends it together in an underrated classic that can be one of the best movies ever.

Martial artist extraordinaire Mark Dacascos stars in what has to be America's finest attempt to replicate a Hong Kong action flick. The plot is thin but the action is great, as the genre dictates. Unceremoniously dumped to video upon it's release and cut by 20 minutes, this one deserves to be seen by anyone digs kung fu flicks.

Drive, it's a very good action movie.
Very good action scene's in the movie.
Good story.
The second best movie with Mark Dacascos.
The best movie from Steve Wang.
A love the fighting scene's in the movie.
Some scene in the movie are funny, not very funny but still funny.
Brittany Murphy did a great job in the movie.

A little bit of Crank and a huge smattering of Jackie Chan, mixed with dollops of Rush Hour.
Dacacscoscscos gets into fights, wins, and then the building they were fighting in explodes. Repeat until the end.

Probably the best American produced martial arts film. Every fight is different and fun, going from motel rooms, to garages, to construction sites. Awesome choreography. If you like environment fights ala Jackie Chan, you'll love this movie. Entire Motel Room/Garage Fight is worth owning this movie for.

I remember watching this on HBO. kind of a unbelievable premise as I remember but it was fun and Mark Dacasco kicks ass in his fight scenes while Kardeem Harrison provides the jokes.

A fast, fun kung fu flick with two likable leads and an insane Brittany Murphy. At times it's pretty goofy, but it's also clever and exciting and funny.

Before Rushhour you had a cracking little kungfu movie by the name of 'Drive'. And I will state that it was sooooo much more creative and interesting than 'Rush hour'.. Only difference was the budget,, Rush Hour was placed on Cinema and was sensationalised, whilst 'Drive' had budget cuts and was placed on video straightaway. Abit fucked up someone stealing your bluepriints like that and taking all your lime light....

This movie is very crazy and if you ever find it on DvD for cheap is well worth watching, a diamond in the dirt find .... definatly one of my favourite films with Mark Dacascos..

Jackie Chan must have copied a lot of ideas from this and placed it in Rush Hour. Shameon you Jackie ..
