enough grunt to send audiences home feeling there's potential in the former wrestler as the successor to Schwarzenegger and company
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Packed with car chases and shoot outs, this isn't subtle, but there are some unexpected twists and surprisingly well-rounded characters, particularly Thornton's detective.

What this has over other action fare is that all the main players have the ability to emote; say what you like about Johnson, he has enough presence and charisma to make this old vehicle purr.

Faster is sufficiently visceral to offer the sort of puerile pleasure that many will happily plead guilty for at the box office.

It's glossily entertaining stuff. And yeah, it's fast-ish... though Furiouser nails it better.
Matthew Turner
March 23, 2011
Fast-paced and tightly written, this is an entertaining revenge thriller with strong performances, exciting action sequences and an impressively stripped down aesthetic that works well.

Although they're all indebted to some other film, there are some nice touches here.

Shadows on the Wall
February 24, 2011
With a comically masculine vibe, this grisly rampage of revenge is inventive enough to hold our interest. Although even a tiny flicker of knowing dry humour would have made it a lot more entertaining.

Cutting right to the chase, Faster seldom slows down.

Faster surprises with its mix of heavy drama and action, yet takes itself to darn seriously.

So what if Faster doesn't quite hang together as a movie? It is still worth hanging out with if you're that particular type of action fan with a hankering for home-brand hard-assedness.

The Age (Australia)
February 2, 2011
Faster slides between tones like a blues guitarist between frets -- mingling Biblical allegory with blatant parody, yet never letting one cancel the other out.

The Age (Australia)

A surprisingly above-par actioner.

James Fletcher
FILMINK (Australia)
February 1, 2011
While it sticks to the formula of a revenge thriller, the characters are fully realised, surprisingly transforming this into a compelling human drama.
Anders Wotzke

There's a primal intensity, both adrenal and emotional, flowing through Tillman Jr's frenetic direction and Johnson's gritty performance that suggests there's more going on under the hood than the stock fittings let on.

The redeeming factors of this heavy-handed, dumbed down movie for action-loving young males are its eccentricities and contradictions.

Logic doesn't slow Johnson's Faster.

...the story line, which includes a theme of moral renascence of forgiveness and redemption, elevated the film above what one generally gets in this genre.

December 5, 2010
...a watchable yet unsatisfying thriller that begins to evaporate from one's memory minutes after it ends...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Killer Movie Reviews
November 29, 2010
Riotously surreal and willfully so, it showcases Dwayne Johnson's star power, not to mention his pecs
