These are films reviewed on the cult movie podcast Junk Food Dinner ( www.junkfooddinner.com/ ).
One hell of a ride.
Milton, a hardened felon who has broken out of hell intends 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 3 days to avoid capture, avenge his daughters 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!!
"Is there anyone NOT trying to kill you?"
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 reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This film is pure, perfect, unadulterated trash, and I love the bajeezus out of it. Nicholas Cage, the king of the modern B movie (D movie? F movie?), finally finds himself in a film worthy of his rampant hamminess. He's turned it up to 11 here, as has the legitimately talented Billy Burke in a ludicrous role as the evil preacher. I could go on about this movie hearkens back to carsploitation revenge flicks of the seventies, or talk about how the awful dialogue is almost poetic in the conflict of the film, but really, what's the point in analyzing this movie? At about the midpoint, Nic Cage points to Billy Burke and says "I'm gonna drink beer out of your skull." I said right then, 'that better happen.' And it does. That's about as good an argument as can be made for the so-bad-it's-a-masterpiece cinematic achievement that is Drive Angry.
It's just brilliant really, isn't it?
The great thing about The Cage is that he really knows how to give his all on the screen. My personal take on this is that he really doesn't give much of a shit, and so has more creative freedom to just go for it.
Either that, or he actually is one seriously badd ass motherfucker who has escaped from hell to shoot up all the bad guys, take one to the face and blow it off and, of course, give a waitress the best ride of her life while taking out a dozen cult mobsters, smoking the fattest cigar ever seen on screen, and not spilling a drop of scotch.
I reckon the second.
Still only gets two stars for being actually crap, but will live on in my memory as a 5 star great.
Any potential partner of mine has to be a strange beast when it comes to film. She has to be able to cope with some pretty extreme stuff, from the absolute shite, up to the most obscure athouse flick. She has to be able to be willing to try new things and have a pretty strong stomach for sex and gore.
So when I sat my new girlfriend down in front of my Blu-ray collection this night, and gave her Carte Blanche to choose anything, she could have chosen Mama Mia! She could have chosen a Disney flick. She could have chosen Hugo (which was one of my recommendation). But no, she stated that she wanted to switch her brain…
I'm so unsure how to evaluate this.
It's like a parody of an really trashy 80s-action-movie with an self-deprecating Cage.
Another movie my cousin wanted to watch with me. Definitely different than I had expected, and really felt similar to My Bloody Valentine, but some of this was ridiculous and over the top. still, it was really entertaining.
Violent, tawdry B-movie fun with that ultimate faith in nobility and justice that lies at the heart of the best B-movies.
Dämlicher aber unterhaltsamer Action/Trash Film mit einem merkwürdig aussehendem Nicholas Cage und einer weniger merkwürdig aussehenden Amber Heard. Ich muss sagen, dass ich "Drive Angry" eher nebenbei sah und die Story war mir auch komplett egal, trotzdem wurde ich gut unterhalten, da es viele coole Einfälle und echt witzige Szenen gab. Ein paar Dinge kommen dem Zuschauer schon bekannt vor, zum Beispiel die etwas andere Sexszene (die es so schon in "Shoot em up" gab) oder die an "Ghostrider" erinnernde Story, aber das ist relativ egal nur für ein paar Längen gegen Ende und ein paar schlechte Effekte im Finale gibt es dann doch Abzüge. Insgesamt ist "Drive Angry" aber wirklich unterhaltsam und wenn man Trash mag, kann man ihn sehen.
Well this movie has one thing right how I feel about this movie and that is angry.

The good: Fichtner is cool as fuck. Protagonist is unscrupulous.
The bad: Pretty much everything else.
William Fichtner really does make this movie. He is just cool all the way through and without him this movie would be bland.
