Screenplay by Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier
The Plot: Nicholas Cage is John Milton, a thief who drives out of Hell to rescue his granddaughter. Along the way he gets help from Piper (Amber Heard) an out of work waitress.
My Thoughts: This is the perfect marriage of a car chase movie and a horror film. It's a definite throwback to the Drive-In and Grindhouse days of the 70's. The action is fast, bloody and without remorse. Most of the effects on this looked to be more practical than CGI and this really helps the movie keep it's gritty feel.
|John Milton is not happy.|
|Yes, I'd let her pick me up.|
|William Fichtner as Hells Accountant.|
|Shoot for their tires, and by tires I mean head.|
Also making a second onscreen appearance is screenwriter Todd Farmer, once again as Frank the trucker. I don't think it's a coincidence that the characters end up in the same situation either.
"Drive Angry" is a fun fast paced film, that grindhouse fans are sure to enjoy.
