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

I haven't seen a movie like this in a long while..
Drive Angry, a 3D explosion of sex, violence and mythology.. Balls to the wall with blood and hillbillies and hicks, Cage is like his Cameron Poe (Con-Air) character but on the on the other side of the track... a hillbilly with no mercy..
the first 5 minutes show what kind of movie this will be..blood, guts and more blood.. a 70's throwback to the pulp, metal on metal, grindhouse era.. gritty yet polished and stylized beacuse of the's an straight forward action flick.

William Fichtner does a good job as the Accountant. He has those crazy ass one liners, delivered with quick and dry wit and a cooler than you attitude..
the rest are just bleh.. maybe it's because this was made for the white trash folk, others might not be able to really appreciate it as a whole.. peppered with one liners and other self aware action humor.. it's trying to be one of those cult movie classics.. it can be.. not sure right now.. but it can be.. then there's a scene there where a fat guy walks by and takes pictures on his cellphone, which was hilarious..
Kinda got boring in the middle and the end was predictable.. it was outlandish, but still predictable and kinda anticlimatic, for me at least..

watch it every now and then if you want some mindless action in 3d... just a popcorn flick for lazy day..
