Jason Sudeikis specializes in characters hiding canniness with slightly sleazy charm, and so he is ideally cast as Hoffman.

The shifts in tone generally work, and credit is also due these characters and the performances behind them.

A joyride more interested in the journey than in any significant destination.

"Driven" is a lot like a DeLorean: Looks great, but moves slow - if it even moves at all.

"Driven" is a good-natured, divertingly jolly mess.

If the film's finally an entertaining ride, it is because Sudeikis takes the audience by the hand through this very unlikely story that was inspired by true events.

This is a saga of greed, envy, power and self-serving behavior writ extra-large, but the resulting film feels curiously small and underwhelming.

It's very competently made. It doesn't really do anything remarkable, but I will say that Lee Pace is amazing as John DeLorean.

Sudeikis gives us Jim as a small-time con artist who finds himself way out of his depth, relying on self-effacement and the appearance of affability to stay afloat. It's a very effective performance.

A promising comedic caper that slowly meanders through very familiar territory. When it finally shifts gears, it's too little, too late. [Full review in Spanish]

... captures some of the glamour and the sleaze inherent in its story, yet rarely dives deeper to provide fresh insight.
August 16, 2019
Driven tells the wrong side of the story, but it's not too enlightening about that other side, either.
August 15, 2019
This is actually quite a fair amount of fun, due in no small part to the charms of Jason Sudeikis.
August 14, 2019
Largely whiffs on creating tension, trying to a make a thriller out of inherently mundane tale of a rich man trying to buy nobility to cover his own insecurities.
August 14, 2019
Driven is a fun, charmingly sweet, slightly unbelievable, and heartbreaking adventure of broken friendships and shattered dreams powered by the strong performances of a top-notch cast.

If someone put their mind to it and wrote a killer script, John DeLorean's story would make for one heck of a flick. Unfortunately, Driven isn't it.
August 13, 2019
a fast-paced joyride of a film based on the DeLorean legal case that took the attention of the country.
August 12, 2019
Crime, coke, cursing in cautionary car mogul tale.
August 12, 2019
There's not a lot obviously wrong with Driven, but it just feels like a cast and crew that is just going through the motions. Such a wild story is told in a disappointingly vanilla manner.
August 12, 2019
While its title may notlinger in your memory, Driven is a well-told, strongly-acted drama with real heart.
