|Cool cars, hefty fist fight and guns blazing - classic action movie featuring "The Rock".
The plot is another classic action plot - get out of prison and kill everyone. Very linear and foreseeable, but hard hitting and action packed.
I love the way that "Driver" is highly efficient all the way. No long talks, no going soft. THAT is how you make action.
Another great thing is the three separate plots that intertwine with each other. They are highly connected, but not still have their own story.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson does an acceptable job as a single minded brother only focused on revenge. He is big, he is determined and he is evil.
For me Billy Bob Thornton has always been a creep, and his part in this movie is really suited for my perception of him. He does a great job.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen playing the perfectionist hitman also does a great job.
The effects are kept at a civil level throughout the film. There is not too much blood and gore and no crazy wild explosions. I like that.
Why only 6 starts then? Well it is a thin plot and though the packing is nice there really is nothing within. Watch it if you have an evening to spare and feel up for brainless action.
