Take lurid 1970s B movies about fast cars and loose women, add a dash of Nicolas Cage at his most deadpan, and sprinkle CGI and 3D technology on top, and you've got Drive Angry 3D. Damned badass Milton (Cage) literally busts out of hell to rescue his infant granddaughter from a Satan-worshiping cult leader named Jonah King (Billy Burke from the Twilight movies). On his way Milton picks up Piper (Amber Heard), a blond waitress with a bad attitude and a worse boyfriend. But hot on their trail is the Accountant (William Fichtner), a demonic emissary of ambiguous intentions but unstoppable power. From there it's a series of car chases, shootouts, and sex scenes, and sometimes sex scenes that are also shootouts (a bit that was done better, it must be said, in the underrated Shoot 'Em Up). Don't ask for coherence or common sense; this is a movie where pretty much any character's main motivation can be summed up as sheer cussedness. Drive Angry 3D maintains a general sleazy good humor, and Fichtner at least is enjoying himself--he's giving exactly the kind of unexpected, offbeat performance that Cage used to specialize in. (Cage himself is pretty lackluster here, sadly, and wearing one of his worst hairpieces to boot.) This is self-conscious trash; think of it as a companion piece, both in intention and quality, to Quentin Tarentino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse compilation. --Bret Fetzer

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.
The movie itself is pretty much what you'd expect. If you go into it expecting to see an Oscar nomination, then you will likely be disappointed. If instead you're willing to just sit back and enjoy the ride then you shouldn't be disappointed.
The 3D was sharp and the colors vibrant. There were a few cool "out of the TV" scenes like the Accountant flipping his coin. The rest of the time the 3D just enhanced the depth of the picture. If you can pick this title up for under $30 then it's definitely worth adding to your 3D collection.
I loved the Accountant, William did a great job, fit the bill perfectly!
