Drive Angry Reviews

  • Cage has forged his own hell, and it's called: the movies he's addicted to making, even when they trash his brand.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • Makes a loud, incoherent but oddly compelling case for the enhancing effects of stereoscopic projection on certain treasured objects of the cinematic gaze, like classic Detroit muscle cars, women's breasts and Nicolas Cage.

    A.O. Scott — New York Times

  • Even at its most lurid, though, the movie is a little dull. And it only gets less compelling as the backstory fills in.

    Mark Jenkins — Washington Post

  • It must be handed to Nicolas Cage. He continues to boldly go where few actors willingly do: the Dumpster. His career now is almost completely reverse-engineered.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • Drive Angry is pure grindhouse, so committed to its own junkiness that it is, in its way, a pleasure to behold.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • Drive Angry 3-Dis a movie so wantonly ridiculous, so aggressively stupid, it demands you make fun of it.

    Tom Maurstad — Dallas Morning News

  • It is hard to imagine Drive Angry sustaining this level of trash-tastic hysterical hokum, and I regret to inform you that it does not, even with all of the above in 3-D.

    James Rocchi — MSN Movies

  • I can't say I enjoyed it. But I can appreciate it. It offends every standard of taste except bad. But it is well made.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • Another John Milton wrote: "Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven." Cage's character would concur, heartily, before reloading.

    Michael Phillips — Chicago Tribune

  • A trio of stridently weird performances -- from Nicolas Cage, William Fichtner, and David Morse -- brighten this otherwise rote actioner.

    Ben Sachs — Chicago Reader

  • Sharp 3D lensing and low-octane camp humor help rev up Drive Angry.

    Rob Nelson — Variety

  • A movie that could have left skid marks on our psyche - in 3-D no less - instead drives us to distraction with verbose line readings that kill momentum worse than a police flashlight shining through a parked windshield.

    Peter Howell — Toronto Star

  • I just wonder if these resources couldn't have been used for something, you know, actually good?

    Laremy Legel — Film.com

  • To its shameless credit, Drive Angry has a knack for stacking its cliches in mind-boggling arrangements.

    Liam Lacey — Globe and Mail

  • The appeal of Drive Angry is much the same as that of Piranha: a willingness to revel in absurdity to the degree where the exhilaration is infectious.

    James Berardinelli — ReelViews

  • There's hellfire and hot rods aplenty here, but a mindless exploitation entry that should have been appallingly awesome instead marshals too little style or intentional humor.

    David Rooney — Hollywood Reporter

  • Being stoned or otherwise buzzed might help.

    Peter Travers — Rolling Stone

  • So awful it's almost great. But no, it's just awful.

    Richard Roeper — Richard Roeper.com

  • It's actually refreshing that Lussier and Farmer don't belabor the film's internal mythology of satanic cults, hell and the devil's administrative assistants.

    Mark Olsen — Los Angeles Times

  • Feels like an affectionate remake of an obscure 1978 Roger Corman production that might have been called "Hot Pants and the Devil Driver."
