Conclusion: 'Drive Angry,' I wanted to love. Really. I'm a Nic Cage fanatic, and throwing him a bone like this, a role that has no limits, it should have hit me in all the right spots. Instead, I kept my eyes on William Fichtner of 'Prison Break' fame, as his character (and performance) stole the show.
Excerpt: This current 3D phase doesn’t really do much for me, by and large. It mostly seems like a gimmick from studios to gouge more money out of audience members without providing much of anything in return.
Summary: This movie is never as good as it could or should have been. You have a pretty good cast and a not-so-shabby premise. But the powers that be just couldn’t find a way to put it together. Director Patrick Lussier had too many toys and not enough experience or skill to play with them.
Conclusion: Drive Angry is the reason people make fun of Nicolas Cage and it reminded me a lot of Ghost Rider – another not so good Cage flick. A lot of things bothered me about this movie including the weird accent of the villain.
