Drive Angry – Starring Nicolas Cage

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 6 December 2011

Drive Angry (2011)(DVD)   Directed by Patrick Lussier, starring Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas (1995), Adaptation. (2002)).  This action film, with clear grindhouse aspirations, starring cars, guns, gruesomely gratuitous violence, a pointless story, generally disappointing special effects, even in 3D, and bad acting all around, including on the part of Nicolas Cage.  Cage, whose acting has never been especially broad and deep (though he does have his fans), may have hit an all-time low here, but is in keeping with the rest of the film, which falls so far short of a Robert Rodriguez (Desperado (1995), Sin City (2005), Machete (2010)), raunchy, violent, campy, bad taste, yet edgy production that the only reason to write a review of Drive Angry is to warn potential viewers not to waste their time.  See the real Grindhouse (2007; Rodriguez’s Planet Terror and Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof) instead. (PR)

We recommend that you buy your DVDs and Blu-ray Disks.  Have a great personal film library..  Here are links to amazon.com:
