Nicolas Cage’s latest, “Drive Angry 3D” (apparently they’ve burned the “3D” part into the title to remind you that it’s, you know, in 3D) will be either really fun, or really, really bad. To be perfectly honest with you, I can’t tell where it’s going to fall, or even where it’s leaning. Here’s the first full trailer for the movie, so you can decide for yourself. By the way, if you were wondering if Cage’s character actually broke out of Hell? Well, this trailer pretty much tells you that Yes, he did in fact break out of Hell, and the Devil is after him as a result. So I guess this is a horror movie, too?
In the newest 3D action-adventure from the director of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, DRIVE ANGRY stars Nicolas Cage as Milton, a hardened felon who has broken out of hell for one last chance at redemption. Intent on stopping a vicious cult who murdered his daughter, he has three days to stop them before they sacrifice her baby beneath a full moon. He’s joined by Piper (Amber Heard) – a young, sexy waitress who liberates her ex-boyfriend’s cherry-red muscle car in order to help Milton. Now, the two of them are hot on the trail of the deadly leader of the cult, Jonah King (Billy Burke), who believes it is his destiny to use the baby to unleash hell on earth. But the bloodthirsty cult is the least of Milton’s problems. The police are after him too. And worse, an enigmatic killer known only as “The Accountant” – who has been sent by the Devil to retrieve Milton and deliver him back to hell. With wicked cunning and hypnotic savagery, the Accountant will relentlessly pursue Milton at high speed across the country until his mission is accomplished. Fueled by high octane and pure rage, Milton must use his anger to go beyond all human limits to avenge his daughter’s murder, before his last chance at redemption is revoked.
