Synopsis
An ex-convict seeks revenge for his brother's death in this action-packed revenge thriller starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Ten years ago, Driver (Johnson) was part of a bank heist gone horribly awry. In the chaos of the botched robbery, his brother wound up dead. Now Driver is a free man, and he's determined to punish the men who killed his late sibling. But settling the score won't be easy, because despite being just a few days shy of retirement, a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) isn't about to let a massacre take place on his watch, and a hotshot hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) has Driver locked in his sights. Unfortunately for Driver, the closer he gets to his targets, the more he puts himself at risk. Later, just as Driver starts to think he's gotten everyone on his list, he discovers that one name seems to be missing.

Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
"FASTER is a pure thriller....Director George Tillman Jr. does a lean, efficient job of creating stark action scenes."
Roger Ebert (23 Nov 2010, )
Los Angeles Times
"The movie exists for its squealing-tire spins and high-speed-in-reverse moves."
Michael Phillips (24 Nov 2010, )
Movieline
"FASTER was built for speed, and for an action-savvy audience....It's a film about The Rock's intensity-in-10-cities glare and giving it to them that bloody well deserve it."
Michelle Orange (23 Nov 2010, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "[B]oth director and star follow the blueprint of all the second-tier '70s revenge-thrillers that FASTER bases itself on, offering up a teeth-gritting, eye-gouging, retro-fitted kill-fest..."
Ken McIntyre (1 May 2011, )
USA Today
"Johnson is always watchable, and, given his hulking physicality, is a natural action hero."
Claudia Puig (26 Nov 2010, )
