Product Description

Johnson/Thornton ~ Faster

From Amazon.co.uk

In Faster revenge is a dish best served quickly and with no remorse. Dwayne Johnson's character Driver has few lines, instead letting his actions--and the growls of the muscle car he's driving--speak volumes. Driver (given no other name for the duration of the movie) is released from prison, for crimes not initially noted, and immediately sets out in a fast car with a gun and a mission of revenge. He is coldly efficient with his kills, wasting no time or bullets as he delivers his brand of justice. The puzzle pieces of his crusade are snapped together with each victim he goes after; this is not a man who kills for the thrill. Each victim is specially selected, and Driver wants each to see his face to understand why they are being executed. Nor does he bother hiding his face from surveillance cameras or the police detectives (Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino) chasing him. Driver is not a man who cares if he's caught, so long as he gets to finish his self-imposed task first. As word of his spree hits the news, one of his potential victims hires an assassin (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) to get to Driver first. Surprisingly, most of the characters show some depth of personality, in spite of being little more than caricatures of stereotypes (the troubled cop, the bored assassin). Faster isn't as reliant on mindless action as expected, but the storyline is played out in such a way that you can't help rooting for Driver and his bloody revenge. Though parts are a tad predictable, all in all this is a thoroughly entertaining action flick. --Jill Corddry --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

Format: Blu-ray
Fresh out of prison, Driver (Dwayne Johnson - The Other Guys) has one thing on his mind - revenge. Meeting his handler R.G. (Mike Epps - Friday/Next Friday/Friday After Next) he is given the list of people who are responsible for him ending up in the slammer for the last ten years. Word gets out that Driver is on the warpath and the head-honcho orders a hitman on him to stop him completing his vengeance. The hitman turns out to be the world's youngest & most successful internet start-up who, bored with stocks and yoga, has turned his hand to contract-killing [naturally]. All the while, Driver has been attracting the attention of the police and the unorthodox practices of Cop (Billy Bob Thornton - Mr. Woodcock). Weeks from retirement, Cop sees putting Driver back behind bars as his swan song. Will Driver get his vengeance? Or will he be stopped in his tracks by Killer or by Cop?

Faster is a fairly brainless movie, I say this because I don't want to give the impression that it will amaze you with witty plot devices or twists & turns. But the simple linear premise of three characters inexorably speeding towards a showdown adds a palpable sense of tension throughout the film. The character development in Faster is fantastic and largely unparalleled as it builds the bad-guys just as much as the good-guys.

Format: DVD
This is a solid, if predictable, revenge thriller. Starring Dwayne Johnson as the man on the mission to hunt down and kill those responsible for his brother's death. It's e decently made film which largely keeps the pace up (though there are some schmaltzy moralising bits that drag a bit) and delivers violence, car chases etc staged with a respectable regularity and skill.

There is quite an attempt at characterisation, with the motives of the mysterious killer sent after our hero explored, and the changing attitude of the hero towards his planned revenge. It makes it a slightly more interesting piece. Unfortunately aside from all that it is somewhat derivative. People who have seen Point Blank or even The Bravados will find nothing much new here, and the denouement of the film is signposted quite clearly early on. SO a few stars off for lack of originality. 3 Stars for managing to deliver quite a tired idea with some verve and interesting acting.

Format: DVD
Dwayne Johnson has spent 10 years in prison for being the driver in a bank robbery. After the robbery, another gang goes to their "secret" hideout, kills Johnson's brother, takes the money and leaves Johnson for dead. Now he is out of prison and wants revenge. A man named "R.G." sets him up with what he needs. And before the credits are done rolling, Rock kills a telemarketer which we come to find out has been outlawed in California. (I would be willing to give up medical marijuana, if we could shoot telemarketers.)

Billy Bob Thornton plays a burned out cop, who is addicted to heroin, caffeine, and cigarettes. There is also an assassin, with a British accent, who is not named Nigel, trying to kill Johnson. He has issues he tries to work out by talking to his therapist via Bluetooth just before he goes in for the kill. This is something that if done right could have added a humor aspect to the story, as it was, it was a distraction.

The movie starts out as 5 stars. Good action and killing. Billy Bob Thornton enters the crime scene with Kenny Rogers' "Condition..." swagger music. For those old enough to remember there was a short period of time when having Kenny Rogers in your collection was cool. After a few killings the movie starts to drag.

No sex or nudity.

Format: Blu-ray
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is easily one of the more successful wrestlers-turned-actor in recent years, starring in many big-budget releases, compared to the straight to DVD releases of his counterparts, Stone Cold Steve Austin & The Undertaker. Part of his charm comes from the fact that beneath his hulking muscles and strength lies a friendliness that he manages to infuse into roles, such as: Get Smart, The Tooth Fairy and Welcome to the Jungle.

In Faster, The Rock seems to play against his usual stereotype with a much darker character. The nameless `Driver' leaves prison after a long sentence and despite the well-intentioned advice to reform and find a new life, he immediately goes out and kills an office worker in cold blood, prompting a police investigation into his past and the trail of carnage he leaves in his wake, as he goes on a rampage killing what seems like unconnected people. As the police investigate his crimes, it appears that the is a dark secret that compells the 'Driver' to commit these ruthless murders.

While the plot may be somewhat predictable in places, it is a good take on the revenge-thriller, although not quite as stylish as the Kill Bill films, which it takes some of its cues from, especially with the video-game style progression of the various bad guys responsible for driving the Rock on his vendetta of murder. The Rock's physique lends itself well to these brutish and fierce characters, much like Arnold Swarzenegger and Sly Stallone once did.

Billy Bob Thornton co-stars as a heroin-addicted cop on his last chance with both his wife and his superiors, who has landed this high profile case as a means to redeem himself.
