Sometimes you'll see a remake that you will want to watch even though you know it will kinda suck but you'll just be there for the gore and the mediocre story. Unfortunately though, Texas Chainsaw is NOT it. And I don't mean that in a good way. This movie made me say, "What in the actual fuck?". It's so utterly cliched and predictable and unrealistic and bland that it makes me feel embarrassed for Leatherface for being in this abomination of a film. It's like a bad direct to DVD movie made to waste your time and money.
This film may be the most frustrating thing I've ever seen since France's "Them". It's entertaining in a bad way. It makes me wanna construct some chemical formula and create a vortex from my screen to the film and b*tchslap each and every character here--and maybe shove my kitchen knife in some of them, too. It's like the world's most clueless set of characters met (by some unexpected trick of fate) and put them in a predicament that kept on twisting and twisting towards worse because of their sheer irrationality and idiocy. If I have to give this film points for being a film, I'll give it quite a good score for its disturbing nature and entertainment value. But as I said, it is very very frustrating and it only left me depressed after watching it so I'll give it one star out of five.
A good concept down the drain. The acting was cheesy, the script was cheesy, the action was cheesy, the effects was a wee bit cheesy, too. All in all, Drive Angry is just a big pizza full of cheese and nothing more. Nicholas Cage was just there to suck everything that's good, while Amber Heard was just there to be pretty.
