Oh, come on guys; "Driven" was a good little sports-action movie, with a cast that fit perfectly in every role. Sylvester Stallone (who also wrote and produced) plays Joe Tanto, a retired Grand Pix race car driver. He is called out of retirement to help his former crew cheif (Burt Reynolds) train the new hot shot racer, Jimmy Bly (Kip Pardue), who has a lot of talent but little disciplin. Believe it or not, the movie is really about Bly, he is the one who changes through out the movie. In fact, the movie is really just a passing of the torch kind of material. But I think it is done well, a macho man's emotional buddy movie. Stallone is great as the world weary racer, those droopy eyes serve him well. Burt Reynolds is also excellently cast as the tough father figure. Gina Gershon is basicly making fun of her on screen persona here as a, well, horrible woman. Kip Pardue is excellent as the cocky young gun with a heart. Tig Schwiger is the cheif competetor against Bly, and he is good as the rival, not to be confused as the bad guy; he isn't. The rest of the cast is trivial. I guess I had a few minor problems with the movie. 1) Like I said before, the actors were perfect for their roles; maybe too perfect, like maybe the characters were written for the actors. 2) There is an accedent about half way through that looks way too bad for anyone to realisticlly get out of. 3) None of the characters seemed all that mad at each other. The end was resolved too easily. But for all that, "Driven" was cool, with lots of exciting race scenes (especially through Chicago), genuine respect between each other, and I liked how all the characters made up at the end, even if it isn't realistic.

Why take a subject so interesting such as race driving and make a film that's allegedly about race driving and yet is TOTALLY improbable?
Why make fun of the audience and cast together in the same movie Sylvester Stallone, Estella Warren and Gina Gershon?
Why do cars keep crashing and ending up upside-down in water courses when there's no way that can happen, even if it's in Interlagos, my hometown race-course (Interlagos has two lakes and, as of today, it's IMPOSSIBLE a racing car will end in one of the lakes, even if it's the major car-crash of all-times in racing history)?
Why does a brazilian character speaks spanish, even if it's for USA audience purposes?
Why all races have incredible pile-ups with dozens of cars and flying car-parts all over the people watching the race?
Why, when movies about racing-cars are so rare, create a script that's so full of cliches and impossible situations?
Why, oh WHY?! make a scene with formula cars racing through the streets of Chicago? It's impossible for a formula car to leave a modern racing course by it's own. And there would be a major accident in the first traffic light. And, without helmets and at 200 mph, the first nocturnal insect would do a major mess of the drivers' faces.
Why is the bad guy a german? Why is one of the team-managers in a wheel-chair? Why these are the only real resemblances to the actual sport?
Why there are so many company names all the time during the movie, making the spectators dizzy with so many letters?
Why so many scenes resemble renderized video-game scenes (and I've seen better simulations in some of those video-games)?
Why didn't they invite ANYONE with a minor f1 or cart or nascar knowledge to screening and audience tests, so this movie would never be released?

Driven is a pretty much your typical racing flick. There are rivalries between drivers, people who go 'way back' and therefore 'owe each other something', ticked off ex-wives, the pain of old failures still remembered, and the pressure to perform more today than yesterday. Typical racing movie drama junk. Of course, you are also treated to lots of crash scenes with stuff flying around, junk landing on spectators, things bursting into flames, and even a car that flys off and somehow ends up landing in a pond. Like I said, typical racing movie blather.
The thing that elevates Driven above all of that is that, with all of it's cheesiness, it is still entertaining. If you like special effects you will love this movie. There are some really great computer generated effects that include: showing how the cars crash together, some decent tunnel vision stuff from the POV of the driver, and a really cool effect that shows the rain drops hitting the drivers visor and being pushed off by air currents. There is also an extra on the DVD of a particular scene that was cut, which included a car blowing up completely - created entirely by computer. It is a morph technology, and the scene looks great. It's a shame that they had to cut it. They also spend some time showing you how the technology works.
Overall, Driven is cheesy and without plot that you will care about - but it is still fun!

When I saw that this movie was being first made I had a small glimmer of hope. A movie about F1. Then F1 said no way and the movie moved on to CART. My hopes quickly diminished from there.
A friend said that this was a good movie. I knew he smoked a lot of pot, but I didn't know he smoked that much.
It starts with ridiculous racing footage. There are absolutely no laws of physics that apply to these cars. Suddenly whenever a car wants to catch up with the one in front he magically gets about a 300 shot of nitrous for more horsepower to instantly catch up and then cannot pull away.
Cars are constantly crashing and bursting into flames. Bright yellow flames, which cannot happen at any professional level because methanol burns blue.
There are absolutely no safety personnel at any of the tracks, so the drivers have to stop from 200 mph in about 50 feet to save the other driver in danger, nevermind that they would be lucky to stop within 500 feet in real life.
That doesn't even mention the awful acting. The acting in a typical Godzilla movie is far better.
For the sake of your sanity, please stay away.
