(This review is based on 2-D viewing only) I had zero expectation for this movie, and it barley changed throughout. I'm not a big Nick Cage fan, but just like everyone on the plant I have seen many of his movies anyways. This is one of those movies anyone could have acted in it and it would have turned out the same either way.
The plot is John breaks out of jail and has 3 days to find his granddaughter who has been taken by a crazed cultist who murdered his daughter. On the way he meets Piper and takes her and her Charger with him on this angry ride to save his granddaughter. While doing this he's being chased by cops, cultist's and a man who calls himself the Accountant. Drive Angry is trying to be a grind-house movie and it works very well. It's cheesy and silly and at some points it's very unbelievable and out there. It had potential in the first 20 min or so, but after that it starts to becomes weirder and less grind-house and more confusing. The acting is what you would expect, poor and there were some good one liners but the gore started out good but slowly disappeared. There are some fun moment's but they are few and far between.
It's not that I didn't want to enjoy this movie, I did. But the plot was not one of those you want to enjoy, the action is sparse and not that good, CG was poor and it just ended up being a strange movie. It had a lot of elements and feeling of Piranha 3-D but that was so much better. If you want to see a good Grind-House movie see Hobo With a Shotgun. I would have to say skip it, and if you were interested in seeing Drive Angry at all rent it.
