Driver (Dwayne Johnson) was pulled into a heist with his brother. They were setup, his brother was killed and he was sent to prison for 10 years. Now he’s out and he’s got a list. Driver is out to kill everyone involved in the death of his brother. But he’s being chased by Cop (Billy Bob Thornton) and a hit man named Killer (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). Knocking them off one by one, Driver’s on a rampage in this action film.

This is not a perfect action flick, but it’s not too bad either. There are some problems. Rock is not a great actor yet (ex: The Tooth Fairy). But he’s pretty buff. Now in terms of the people on his hit list, none of them put up any fight, so it’s not very exciting tracking down someone who’ s waiting on him to show up. Likewise the action is not very intense either. There’s a fast car chase or two, but they’re pretty anticlimactic as well. The ending is fairly predictable tool. There’s not a lot of humor in this film either, but every once in a while there will be a chuckle or two. But despite this, it’s still a relatively interesting thriller action flick that has enough to keep you interested. If you’re a fan of police/bad guy action flicks where good is not always good and evil does not always lose, this is worth the watch. I rated it in the middle because despite the flaws it was enough to make it worth a rental. The Rock looks great, and handles the action parts pretty well. I think it’s enough to make the movie worthwhile for action fans. So if you’re a fan of these kinds of films, go for it.
