Synopsis


Faster
An ex-convict seeks revenge for his brother's death in this action-packed revenge thriller starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Ten years ago, Driver (Johnson) was part of a bank heist gone horribly awry. In the chaos of the botched robbery, his brother wound up dead. Now Driver is a free man, and he's determined to punish the men who killed his late sibling. But settling the score won't be easy, because despite being just a few days shy of retirement, a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) isn't about to let a massacre take place on his watch, and a hotshot hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) has Driver locked in his sights. Unfortunately for Driver, the closer he gets to his targets, the more he puts himself at risk. Later, just as Driver starts to think he's gotten everyone on his list, he discovers that one name seems to be missing. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    When I decide to see Dwayne Johnson in a movie, I am either looking for hardcore butt-kicking action or something on the lighter side where he isn't afraid to challenge his manhood (like in the Tooth Fairy). In this movie, it is hard to tell if his role is supposed to be a good guy or a bad guy. It takes quite a while to build up the story and for you to get all the details of why he is doing what he is doing. I don't think the hit man in this movie added anything to the plot. I liked this movie, but would have rated it higher if there was more action and it didn't take so long to get the viewer to understand what was the motivation and who everyone was. It seemed like the director/writer wanted to add a little thought provoking element to this movie, but when you are watching The Rock, you just want to see him kick butt.

    This movie focuses on Driver (the Rock) and his search for the men that killed his brother. Both are shot and left for dead after a botched robbery attempt, but only Driver survives (and has the metal plate in the back of his head to remind him). After he is released from prison, his sole mission is the elimination of his brother's killers one-by-one. You can tell that this isn't a task he would carry out under normal circumstances, but yet in his mind it is one that must be completed out of love for his brother. You'll have to watch to see how it ends, but I highly recommend this one.

    Okay, I admit it (since I don't have to use my real name)... I would watch Dwayne Johnson read the newspaper. Sue me. There are other DJ movies I enjoyed more, but this one was action-packed enough for me. Seriously, DJ has more talent then he is given credit for, and certainly this movie didn't really do him justice (but it was better than Tooth Fairy!) Billy Bob Thornton was really good - his character was so ... yuk, I felt like I needed to take a shower after watching him.

    I first rented this movie online to see how good or bad this movie really was. After watching it, I LOVED this movie. IT is just simply AWESOME and has the most intense and thrilling scenes mixed with a plot I loved from beginning to the very end. The visuals and actors are just fun and cool to watch and I could easily watch this BLURAY DVD over and over again, and never be bored or tired of it. An awesome movie I got for a very cool price here at BestBuy.com. FASTER ROCKS! OH YEAH!

    This is a good quality blu-ray with clear picture and sound. The story is an action revenge drama starring Dwayne Johnson who delivers a good performance as the main character whose past unfolds as the story evolves. Billy Bob Thornton plays a detective on the verge of retirement who is assigned the case of Johnson's aftermath. As the plot comes to a climax, the two main characters collide and their present and past come together. Entertaining and well crafted.

    You just don't see the "revenge" action flick enough these days! This had the no-holds-barred, singular focus revenge is all that matters feel of action movies of the 80s and 90s. Except the plot was better. And the acting was better! I bought this as a "blind buy," which means I had never seen. Got a fantastic deal - Thanks Best Buy! - and loved the movie. Recommended period, a MUST OWN for any action fan!
