After 10 years in prison, Driver (Dwayne Johnson) has a singular focus - to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his imprisonment. Now a free man with a deadly to-do list in hand, he’s finally on his mission… but with two men on his trail - veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) just days from retirement, and a young egocentric hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) with a flair for the art of killing and a newfound worthy opponent.
Faster is a nonstop adrenalin pumping thrill ride from the gate. After Driver is released from prison, he goes on revenge fueled killing spree that doesn’t seem to ever end until he finally finds the person you pulled the trigger in his brother’s murder. Finally Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) has been given a role that he is meant to play. I’ve been so tired of seeing him in Disney fluff movies, I could puke. He was born to be a kick-butt action hero. This shoot first and ask questions latter flick is not a date movie, so just grab the guys and take them for a ride. It’s not the best action movie I’ve seen by a long shot, but it’s worth seeing if you like action thrillers.
