Faster Review

Faster is a tale of revenge starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Billy Bob Thornton. It's a straight to the point, enjoyable, flick that pulls no punches with its style and goes straight for the jugular with a brutal manner.

There is little use of special effects (though there is some) so nothing for special effects fans to drool over really. The audio is pretty decent though. The soundtrack roars through at specific points in the film and generally suits the tone of the film.

It's a slightly strange film, and doesn't really come together until the end, and although it's slightly predictable, it's enjoyable enough to see out the finale that does leave you on the edge of your seat a little bit.

Billy Bob Thornton and Dwayne Johnsons performances are pretty good and add alot of character to the movie. It's good to see Dwayne Johnson pick up a slightly different role to what he's normally cast in, playing a fairly good anti hero that isn't scared to get his hands dirty.

The supporting actors are convincing enough too, Moon Bloodgood (Daybreak, Terminator Salvation) plays a good role, aswell as Carla Gugino.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen does well, but his character I just felt wasn't used to its best potential. He is developed well, but you just don't see much use of him and his character feels a little forced aswell.

Overall though a decent film. I enjoyed it from start to finish. If you like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, this is probably one of his better films to see.

Overall I would give this film a 8/10 for its story, 8/10 for its action, and 7/10 for audio and visual.
