One hell of a ride.
Milton is a hardened felon who has broken out of Hell, intent on finding the vicious cult who brutally murdered his daughter and kidnapped her baby. He joins forces with Piper, a sexy, tough-as-nails waitress with a 69 Charger, who's also seeking redemption of her own. Caught in a deadly race against time, Milton has three days to avoid capture, avenge his daughter's death, and save her baby before she's mercilessly sacrificed by the cult.
Ok, so first off, it's Drive Angrily, ok?
The fact that you apparently do not possess enough cognitive capacity to grasp that does not excuse you from:
- writing dialogue shitly
- writing your plot craply
- making everything dully
You should thank God on your bare knees that someone cast Heardly, Cagely and Fichtnerly.
They save this film.
My god....Amber Heard...a spectacular looking lady. She could be my favourite!
Sadly Ms Heard is outshone here by the real, super sexy star of the film.
Nic Cages hair piece. What a stunner!!
I'd like to have it over to my place, cook a risotto...have some wine...maybe light some candles. Have a real nice time.
Ridiculous, bloody, brains off...actually, full on LOBOTOMY required, FUN!!
Nicolas Cage goes from the sublime to the ridiculous more than most. An actor with huge talent, just witness Leaving Las Vegas for the proof, he also makes more shit than a herd of cows. Drive Angry for most would fit into that category, but for some who are willing to look beyond the silly premise, the even sillier plotting and dialogue, and Cage's dodgy barnet, they might just embrace something just a little bit different.
Cage plays John Milton, a man who has broken out of Hell with a mission to recover his kidnapped granddaughter. A crazy premise that just ups the ante at every turn, this is a supernatural action film like no other. I honestly have never…
In this one Nicolas Cage takes sips from a bottle of whiskey, smokes a giant cigar, and kills a bunch of evil redneck satanists without taking his dick out of a waitress. What's not to like?
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is not Shakespeare. This is not award baiting melodrama. This is however wickedly entertaining nonsense from the king of crazy,Mr Nicolas Cage.
Aided and abetted by the wonderful Amber Heard this movie sees Cage escape from Hell and seek to recover his grand-daughter kidnapped by a satanic cult. Yep, that's what the story is about,but done with so much swagger and ridiculous plotting that it really is a hoot. Cage and Heard sizzle on screen and seem to take the film for what it is, a fun ride.
Hot girls,satanic cults,a black Dodge Charger and lots of gunplay and violence mixed with some great action sequences make this a true guilty pleasure. Cage shagging, and killing numerous bad guys…

Item 27. A film featuring Hell!
I sometimes enjoy trashy movies. I adored "Piranha 3D". That is my highlight for bad films that are actually incredibly good. As for "Drive Angry" I was bored for most of the film. Now could it have to do with the fact that I watched it on my small television screen? Possibly, I think the film would have been a lot better in the actual 3D presentation. But would I ever go to see this in a theatre and pay for it? No.
The film is completely over the top. Every aspect. The acting, the dialog, the special effects, the set pieces. But nothing in this film is enjoyable. I was hoping to have a smile on my face for this film but sadly I had a bored expression the whole time.
Rating: Skip It
Hey, that was fun.
As far as Nicolas Cage B-Movies go, Drive Angry has to be the best, with an incredibly even-but-equally-commanding main trio of characters. First, the hero is only as good as his/her villain, and when said villain is William Fichtner congratulations are in order. Fichtner doesn’t just chew scenery, he pops in out and out as he pleases, takes as much time as he wants to waltz around, and always maintains his cool, even when delivering dialogue that is, if I had to pick a word I guess I’ll go with “bad ass”.
Cage, meanwhile, isn’t exactly full-Cage here. For that, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is the better pick. He’s a little restrained here, but nevertheless take that shootout in…
Thank God for William Fichtner. Without him this movie would be a colossal failure. And I think "Drive Angry" could have been a descent action flick, I think the casting of Billy Burke and the whole story around Jonah King was a huge mistake. Every scene with him felt weird and cheap, I don't know...
As I said, Fichtner is so fun to watch. I would like to see a whole movie just with him as the Accountant.
"You, fat fuck. Come here."
"What did you call me? What did you just call me?"
"I called you "fat fuck," and we had better leave it at that. Unless you'd prefer I call you, "dead fat fuck.""
Drive Angry is without a doubt one of the most batshit insane films that Nicolas Cage has ever been in- and that is a really difficult thing to say about such a film.
Just to put it into perspective- Cage has a shootout with some bad guys whilst having sex with a woman (of his age I might add- good thing to see in a film) and drinking from a bottle of Jack Daniels and smoking. What the fuck did I just witness?
This film is insane- it's a shame I didn't see it in it's full 3D glory.
The two stars are for each scene Atkins is in.
Genau für diese Art Filme ist kaum jemand geeigneter als Nicolas Cage.
Überbordende, nie ernste Actionkomödie, mit gelungenen Figuren (Fichtner, Burke).
There's a lot of difference between a "good movie" and a "good Nicholas Cage movie". Silly, goofy, and extremely over-the-top, Drive Angry is a pretty good Nick Cage flick, even if it's not going to be on many people's best of 2011 lists.
Cage stars as Milton, a man who escapes from Hell in order to avenge the murder of his daughter and stop his infant granddaughter from being sacrificed as part of a cult's plot to bring Hell to earth. He picks up a blonde (Amber Heard) along the way, and the two of them are pursued by cops and a grim reaper-type man (William Fichtner) who's job it is to bring Milton back to where he belongs.
I wish that in ever movie the main character's car has a vanity plate of the film's title
"Jonah King was into voodoo?"
"Not voodoo, Satanic Magic."
