LOVEFiLM By Post

A tongue-in-cheek and hugely enjoyable action blast, full of smoking-hot cars and drop-dead gorgeous women, with Nicolas Cage on top form. Milton (Cage) is a hardened - albeit dead - criminal who has so far spent his afterlife in Hell. Enraged by the murder of his daughter and the imminent sacrifice of his baby granddaughter by a brutal religious cult, Milton breaks out to stop the REAL evil-doers before they fully unleash Hell on Earth. Aided by a seriously hot and sassy waitress Piper (AMBER HEARD – All The Boys Love Mandy Lane) and driving a cherry red muscle car which Piper liberates from her meat-head ex, Milton is blazing a trail in pursuit of the brutal cult leader. But Milton's being hounded too – not only by the police but by an enigmatic character known only as The Accountant (a scene stealing WILLIAM FICHTNER from Entourage and Prison Break), who has been sent by the Devil to bring Milton back to Hell. Milton is mad, bad and Hell-bent on achieving his goal. He's breaking all the rules, but what are they gonna do – not let him back in?

Well after watching quite a few blu ray 3D's this one is by far the best for 3D effects its brilliant right from the start. I would highly recommend you buy it for the 3D Effects alone. The story is also good the title doesnt do the film justice and would probably put people off but well worth watching.

Having seen My bloody valentine 3D back in 2010, i decided to have a look at Lussier's new action filled thriller called Drive Angry.

Ive never been a big fan of Nic Cage cause his acting is sometimes over-reactful and his quotes are annoying (for example OH GOD NOT THE BEES! AARGH!!!! from Wicker Man (2006) ) Drive Angry is about an undead criminal Milton (Nicholas Cage) who escapes from hell to save her granddaughter from an evil cult leader Jonah King (Billy Burke, Charlie Swan from Twilight-series). Milton's daughter joined the cult after high-school and he didn't know about this untill Milton got locked up.

Milton meets a super-hot waitress Piper (Amber Heard, Mandy from All the boys love mandy lane). She gets involved to mess and she gets quiet temper with Milton in situations. During the course of Drive Angry there's a great set of violence, humour, suspense, sex and drugs (including a scene where Milton has sex, drinks and shoots thugs during the way)

Some of the CGI is over-rated, but that's what makes Drive Angry more badass!

Result 5/5= You should get it, it's worth it. Great for saturday nights if you just want to drink pint and enjoy a good flick!

Format: Blu-ray
Fuelled from the start with attitude, adrenaline and swearing this action movie delivers energy, thrills and stuff to look at, but it is shallow. The beautiful Amber Heard stars alongside the ageing Nicolas Cage, and this is the film's best element. William Fictchner (Prison Break) also stars, alongside other foolish comic like characters and muscle cars.

The pursuit for ballsy all out action is at the forefront throughout and is drone worthy if you are not in the brainless mood. Drive Angry is silly but entertaining, almost amusing in it's content box-ticking (sex, cars and guns). The film for me reinforces my loathing for Cage - a terrible hard man and easy to criticise again in this black coffee drinking aloof role.

If you want all out action, with a pretty girl, a car, Cage and comic styled action then this will be a hit with you. If you think a slo-mo sex and fight scene with comical kills sounds amusing, then this is one drive you should take.

This film has plenty of it!

Brilliant for a Saturday night in. There is plenty of action and it keeps you entertained throughout. I can see mixed reviews for this film and I can understand why. There is not a whole lot of depth to the film. It is simple really. Nicolas Cage escapes from hell wanting revenge for his daughters tragic death. That is about it! There are plenty more films with even less story than that.

If you are looking for a relatively easy film to watch. That is not that thought intensive but not thought destroying at the same time. This is a good one! In my opinion it is not the best film you will ever watch, though the thrill factor is certainly there.

It has a brilliant soundtrack as well. Including: UNKLE and Peaches. I enjoyed it.

Drive Angry is a fast, frantic and fun movie that I'd highly reccomend. I'm only not giving it 5 stars as I think the final half of the film doesn't quite live up to the incredible first half. This is a very violent film but is tongue in cheek like alot of my favourite films from the 80's. Nic Cage(on form) and Amber heard(gorgeous) are good leads and William Fichtner has fun in a great role. Amongst all the action and violence the film has a good internal logic and is a cleverly put together film. It's a well cast film with a good story/script and well edited. Well worth watching and most likely re-watching.

Again i must admit i've followed 'Nicolas Cage's movies since his early classic's such as 'The Rock' 'Con-Air' and one of my all time favourites 'Face/off'
'Drive Angry' see's 'Nicolas Cage' at his very best with this 'tongue-in-cheek' roller-coaster-ride.
'Milton'(Nicholas Cage) has escaped from 'Hell' to save his grandchild from the evil-cult that had killed his daughter and who intend offering the child as a sacrifice.
'Milton' is joined on his quest by 'Piper' (Amber Heard) a young-lady who is certainly not afraid to ''mix-it''
Throughout they are being tracked by cult members intent on stopping them, as the body-count mounts the police are also on their trail as is ''The Devil's'' accountant (William Fichtner)
The 'accountant' contents himself with the body count but still wants to re-capture 'Milton'
This is a fast moving deliciously wicked action thriller with many brilliant on-the-road stunts to enjoy....along with some great c.g.i .....not to be missed.

THE MOVIE

One of my absolute favorite movies. I've seen it about 100 times already and it never gets boring.
The mix of revenge story and occult thriller works out fine in my opinion.
Both lead actors Nicolas Cage and Amber Heard in one of the best performances of their careers, although William Fichtner steals the scene every time he makes an appearance. His character is just hilarious. Tom Atkins makes an appearance as the police Captain.
Directed by Patrick Lussier, who brought us MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, this is one of the most well-paced action movies I have ever seen with genuinely likeable characters.
There's some ultra violent scenes, but the violence is stylized and comical and the CGI blood doesn't look that real. Lot's of humor and good one-liners and some really interesting ideas. Loved it!
5.0 OUT OF 5.0 STARS.
