Nicolas Cage headlines this high-octane thriller as Milton, a hard-case felon who breaks out of Hell to prevent the cult that murdered his daughter from sacrificing his infant granddaughter to Satan on the night of the full moon. With just three days to go before the ritual killing, Milton crosses paths with knockout waitress Piper (Amber Heard), who steals her cheating ex-boyfriend's vintage Charger and joins him on his quest to save the Earth from the forces of darkness. With Piper's help and a mean set of wheels to keep them moving, they may have a shot at taking down diabolical… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The appeal of Drive Angry is much the same as that of Piranha: a willingness to revel in absurdity to the degree where the exhilaration is infectious."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"It's actually refreshing that Lussier and Farmer don't belabor the film's internal mythology of satanic cults, hell and the devil's administrative assistants."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Performances, especially from William Fichtner and Amber Heard, are great and the 3D is pretty solid, but that's about all I can say for Drive Angry 3D in terms of positive aspects of the film."
‑ Benjo Colautti, We Got This Covered
"Drive Angry is very obviously Nicolas Cage embracing his own ridiculousness, or - in language invented by Bad Lieutenant director Werner Herzog - "releasing the pigs"."
‑ Ali Gray,
"A rather straightforward supernatural-heroism tale straining oh-so-very-hard to be indecent."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"So awful it's almost great. But no, it's just awful."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"Great title -- shame about the movie."
‑ Tom Charity,
"There isn't much to Vancouver-raised director Patrick Lussier's film besides mayhem and muscle cars, but he sure gets those things right."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"[Drive Angry 3D] ends up failing pretty badly as it doesn't even come close to being a grindhouse film or entertaining."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"The Citizen Kane of exploitation flicks."
‑ Grae Drake,
"Being stoned or otherwise buzzed might help."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Drive Angry is pure grindhouse, so committed to its own junkiness that it is, in its way, a pleasure to behold."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"A little respect, please, for His Satanic Majesty, Nicolas Cage. Nobody else could have made this work, or would have wanted to."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"...a tedious waste of time..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The film is saved, not by its star, but by a supporting turn from William Fichtner as The Accountant, an underworld bounty hunter stalking Milton's every move."
‑ Martin Roberts, Fan The Fire
