Faster (2010)


after serving 10 years in prison for bank robbery, Driver has only 1 mission he had to complete. he had to avenge his brother's death, murdered after being setup by a gang. now a free man, he went through the list with nothing capable of stopping him from killing them. however, a Cop who only left 10 days before retirement was assigned on his case, n a young egoistic hit-man (Killer) was paid to kill him.

the plot was so simple n straightforward it was impossible to be misled. one of the coolest attraction the film managed to consistently portrayed, was having him went through the killing smoothly despite the distractions from Cop n Killer. both the Rock n Cop played such believing parts, we were able to feel the anger as well as the joy of having one of those taken out. we loved the film, for it wasn't about good cop versus bad guy, but it was justice, with god miraculously helping those in need.

  1. Sometimes, watching a straightforward movie with simple plot can be quite nice.

  2. I love any movie by The Rock! :D

  3. The Rock is convincing in movies, quite like this tough guy :-)

  4. "for it wasn't about good cop versus bad guy, but it was justice, with god miraculously helping those in need."

    Sounds like a GREAT film!

    i totally agree. yet it wasn't boring or a failure at all!
