(2011)  104 min

A vengeful father escapes from hell and chases after the men who killed his daughter and kidnapped his granddaughter.

Director: Patrick Lussier
Writers: Todd Farmer, Patrick Lussier
Stars: Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard and William Fichtner

As entertaining as this film seemed in a trailer the actual movie just didn't keep up. Nicolas Cage plays the part of a murdered father who escapes from hell to save his murdered(sacrificed) daughter's baby from the clutches of a demonic cult. This plot seems interesting but Drive Angry runs out of gas quick.

The entire movie seems like a collage of badass moments mixed with some emotional baggage. Cage's performance is mediocre (i think he meant it to be) and most of his scenes are either crude, sexually explicit, filled with guns and death, or of him sad and depressed. Amber Heard's character is definately more believable than Cage's and she grounds the movie in a sense of reality. William Fichtner plays the role of Anubis (the Accountant), the god of the dead and is chasing Nic Cage all over Earth to bring him back home.

Long Movie Short; losts of death, campy acting by Cage, Billy Burke (Captain Swan from Twilight) plays the crazed demon incarnate cult leader, and William Fichtner has the best lines and acting in the film. Not to mention the 3D was almost not even noticeable.
I advise you to pass on this one.

+ William Fichtner
+ Creative Plot
- Terrible Acting
- Terrible Dialogue
? What will Nic Cage's next film be?
