Action All The Way!
By verisa hoglen
Unusual for somebody (Nick Cage as Milton) to escape from Hell to save his infant grandchild. He's followed by "The Accountant" who is responsible for the number of souls in Hell. The Accountant is the funniest guy in the movie. Milton meets up with a gal named Piper who is really pretty but can kick your ass, and the 2 take off in a Dodge Charger to rescue the baby girl from Satanists who are going to sacrifice the baby. The Accountant is not far behind. Milton drives angry, the Satanists drive crazy, the cops drive everywhere, & The Accountant is having a great time. There's shooting, violence, girl fights, sex, blood & guts. No children were harmed in the making this film.

People and their nasty reviews...shame on you! I loved this movie, it had action, humor, and awesomeness all rolled in together. I mean yes a lot of people died, but the humor and the chase was amazing, i just cannot get around people not liking it! I am especially in love with the "accountants" performance, he cracked my funny bones to pieces! People these days need to get a sense of humor with a dash of let it ride...without bashing the serious into it! I give it a high five! :)

I love Drive Angry
By Elizabeth C. Fairfax
I love Drive Angry. Action movies aren't usually much my thing, much less ones that seem to sell themselves on the idea of cars being given title status, but this movie embodies everything I love in a popcorn flick: it's fun, it's over the top, and it plays with beloved tropes in new and inventive ways.
Drive Angry is no piece of high art, but that doesn't mean it is by any means artless. How many other films will let you watch an undead Nicolas Cage drink a beer out of his sworn enemy's skullcap while s*** talking an infernal accountant by comparing him to other pyschopomps? Drive Angry is lovingly constructed to be the best dumb supernatural car chase action movie it can be. And did I mention the lack of a forced romance subplot? Drive Angry's female lead has her own motivations and doesn't need to be turned into Cage's wilting arm candy to have a stake in the plot.
This is the kind of "bad movie" you dream of seeing, lovingly made by people who knew exactly what they were doing. If Drive Angry is trashy, then I am the raccoon greedily gobbling up that trash because it's just so good.
