Drive Angry is an action packed movie shot in real 3D, it has a very similar plot to that of Ghost Rider (2007), where a Hell’s escapee goes onto create havoc on Earth, in both films Nicolas Cage plays the fugitive from Hell character, the paper suits him very well, caustic humour scenes, lots of action and a pretty female sidekick (Amber Heard), Drive Angry action starts at the first minutes and lasts until the end, non-stop.
There is nothing on this movie making it stand out from the crowd, just what you can expect from any Nicolas Cage action film, lots of shooting and cynical humour, I would call it entertaining for the average public and quite enjoyable for action movie fans but I would not go out of my way to watch it, I don’t see this film winning any kind of award.
The 3D version of Drive Angry produces a crystal-clear picture with very little eye strain, I didn’t think that the special effects were worth the extra money that a 3D film costs, only the more in-depth explosions and big firewalls can justify it.
Synopsis: Melon (Nicolas Cage) escapes from Hell to avenge his daughter’s murder and rescue her kidnapped granddaughter from a band of cult worshipping savages.
