Whereas Nicolas Cage’s most recent stinker “Season of the Witch” just looked really, really ridiculous in a ridiculously awful sort of way, his latest, “Drive Angry 3D” just looks really, really ridiculous in a ridiculously fun sort of way. Then again, maybe it’s just Amber Heard in shorts and boots walking around saying lines line, “I’m gonna mess you up” with a ridiculously affected Southern drawl. Either/or. Here is another clip featuring the always watchable William Fichtner doing his thing and two TV spots.
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.
Starring Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard, Billy Burke, Katy Mixon, David Morse, William Fichtner, Wanetah Walmsley, Christa Campbell, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Bryan Massey, Charlotte Ross and directed by Patrick Lussier.
