Product Description

After 10 years in prison, Driver (Dwayne Johnson) has focused on one thing – hunting down the people responsible for brutally murdering his brother. Now a free man with a terrifying purpose, he sets out to find and kill all those on his list. But on his heals are two men who will do anything to stop him – a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) and a hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) who finds his match in this worthy opponent. Now, the hunter is also the hunted.

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 story line 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

I've read a number of reviews that slam this movie, but honestly what was their expectation? This is a great movie if you're looking for the genre. I think this was Johnson best...

2.0 out of 5 stars worth a rental at least May 5 2011
By K. Roy
Format:DVD
This movie takes your classic revenge tale and puts a twist into it.

Dwayne's (The Rock) character is an ex-con who was put in prison for aiding his brother in an armed bank robbery...
Billy Bob's character is a cop with a drug addiction who is 10 days from retirement and trying to close out this last case...
...and the other guy who I'm forgetting his name is a professional assassin who is hired by an unknown source to kill The Rock

anyways the basic story is that The Rock gets out of prison and goes after the men responsible for killing his brother and ultimately landing The Rock in jail. The Rock is given limited lines this time around and it actually works for his character as The Rock wears his emotions on his sleeve in this one.

Nice visuals go along with a nice twist towards the end (that the audience can see coming a mile away) ultimately wrap up a decent rental movie

4.0 out of 5 stars Updated exploitation at it's finest Jan. 9 2011
By Dr. Balls - Published on Amazon.com
This was a great modern exploitation movie. It had some decent acting, and contrary to some other reviews - The Rock hardly speaks in it, which is one of the things that makes it a great flick. He has tapped back into that imposing WWE persona, and brought it to the big screen again. His presence, his attitude and his demeanor is absolutely perfect for the role. There isn't an ounce of Tooth Fairy in this performance.

The overall story and how it plays out is very much influenced by the genre. There are so many great examples of this in the film, it really is a treat if you're into that. It's a really fine example of modern exploitation flimmaking. I don't know where CBS films is going to go, but hopefully they will not have given up on this type of movie.

Don't go into this movie thinking it's a highbrow heist film or savvy thriller - it's a visceral blow-em-up action flick that is probably best watched with your wife at the grocery store or at her sewing class. Crack open a beer, open up a bag of Little Smokies and sit on the couch for an hour and a half of blowing stuff up and sweet, sweet revenge - 80's style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Faster Feb. 3 2011
By Frank J. Pickens - Published on Amazon.com
I know this movie did not do that well money wise, but I thought it was the Rock at his finest. He was made for this role and performed it like a veteran actor. It is similiar to other movies involving revenge, but this movie takes it to a much higher and violent level. The action is very fast paced and actual bordered on brutal killings, which are great and crowd pleasing as you root for the protagonist to "Get Even". Billy Bob Thorton is good as always while playing a burned out detective.
I can not say too much more or it will spoil the different plot twists in the movie especially towards the end. You don't have to be a Dwyane Johnson fan to really love this movie. Johnson simply excels in his role due to his physicality in looking the part he is playing, and the bonus is the action and excitement. Great movie. If you saw "Walking Tall" and liked it, you will love this one all that much more as it is a much better movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars DEATH WISH JOHNSON! Jan. 25 2011
By Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has no real name in this movie, just his occupation: Driver. Similarly, Billy Bob Thornton is "Cop." That must have been difficult to come up with. A completely unnecessary third-wheel-subplot is present, showing off a millionaire software developer assassin who has mastered yoga (seriously) and gets to shag Maggie Grace - whose role as hot girlfriend is so pointless it should have been uncredited - is hardly worth mentioning.

After being released from prison, Driver jumps in the car set up by a P.I. acquaintance of his, drives to a local telemarketing office, and sprays some nerd's brain matter on the back of his cubicle. If there is a better way to get me on the side of a guy embarking on a cross-country, revenge-filled murdering spree - which is tracked by Cop and his partner Cop with Breasts (Carla Gugino) - then I don't know of it; because everyone hates telemarketers. Through flashbacks we learn that Driver's brother (and crew) were involved in a bank heist and later murdered for their score. Up next: Death Wish Johnson!

Flaws in character development abound, as very little is learned about Driver, but a ton of time is spent on Billy Bob's failed marriage, portly kid, and drug problem. Each of the characters is transparently established as flawed, and the certainty of their eventual revelation makes tomorrow's sunrise doubtful. The cinematography and limited special effects are both unremarkable. Acting-wise, this film has the gusto of a professional cast already reading their next script; it never reaches the crescendo of expected excitement. Evidently two decent car chases and a few head shots just wasn't enough to get the cast fully enthralled either. I will say, however, that Johnson definitely steps outside his comfort zone, displaying what appeared to be genuine vulnerability to pair with already mastered anger.

While disappointing, Faster is nonetheless in my beloved "Death Wish," screw with me and I'll kill everyone you know, category. So, for that, it gets extra points. Besides all that, I'm for any opportunity that keeps the Rock out of family films or a fairy costume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Moving June 21 2011
By cj - Published on Amazon.com
I can't believe this didn't do better at the box office. I purchased the blu-ray and have been able to enjoy it more and more with each viewing. This, in my opinion, is Duane's best work thus far. A great story of revenge, redemption, and ultimately forgiveness (just the real bad guys get taken out), the clues keep presenting until most viewers are able to form the correct conclusion at the time it is presented. My advice, buy this movie "Faster."...Har...Har...Har.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE "ROCK" GOES POSTAL!! May 18 2011
By James C. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
after being released from a 10 year stint in prison for a robbery gone wrong, Dwayne Johnson's character "Driver" goes a killing spree to kill those that killed his brother during the robbery.

if you are in the mood for a action movie, then this is just what the doctor ordered. Car chase scenes, violence, villians, beautiful women, and general mayhem abound in this actioner.

An impressive supporting cast, including Billy Bob Thornton and Carla Gugino round out the characters. Billy Bob and Carla play detectives trying to stop "Driver" from killing any more, and at the same time discover his motivation for doing so. (I must add that Carla Gugino is an incredibly beautiful woman and that I am a big fan of her films).

don't want to give away the plot, but the movie does have a moral message at the end somewhat when "Driver" learns that getting even with others will now leave its own scars on his psyche, and that he'll have to carry those scars with him.
