Faster

2010Faster

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino and Maggie Grace

I have mixed feelings about Faster. It’s a good movie if you’re into an ex-con running around doing revenge killings. It’s a not-so-fantastic movie if you’re not.

Johnson plays an ex-con fresh out of jail from a 10-year stint. His one and only goal, avenge his brothers death. Hooked up with a fast car, a gun and the list of men to find he sets out to even the score.

Thornton plays an old rundown low-life cop with a drug habit who is just weeks from retirement. Everybody on the force knows he’s crap, so when he’s assigned to the case with Cicero (Carla Gugino) she is less than pleased.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen plays the hit man. He’s hired to track and kill the ex-con before he gets to the man who hired him.

Pretty women, fast cars, guns, God, forgiveness… This movie has a lot and it’s all crammed into 98 minutes.

I can’t say that I’d ever watch it again because once was clearly enough.
