Consensus: It's good to see Dwayne Johnson back in full-throttle action mode, but Faster doesn't deliver enough of the high-octane thrills promised by its title.

Only Gugino, one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood, displays emotional complexity - and do you really need that in an action flick? Actually, yes.

By the end of this underwritten wanna-B movie, only the black-and-white muscle car is left standing with its dignity intact.

Inundated with liches and lazy plot twists, this Dwayne Johnson vehicle is a complete waste of time.

Structurally "Faster" is as blocky as its star. Fancy camera angles and changes in hue cannot camouflage its stumbling, blunt-force narrative style, in which plot turns are dropped like bricks.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

Despite much effort, neither Johnson nor director George Tillman Jr. can make this preposterous tale, the latest misfire from CBS Films, live up to its title.

enough grunt to send audiences home feeling there's potential in the former wrestler as the successor to Schwarzenegger and company

Globe and Mail

The Killer subplot looks and feels like it was grafted on with Krazy Glue. Thornton's character never adds up. And the film's big whiplash surprise ending is a real you've-got-to-be-kidding groaner.

Gary Dowell
Dallas Morning News

Johnson's performance is one of seething rage camouflaging emotional scars as ugly as the physical ones, a grim, single-minded figure straight out of a Jim Thompson or Richard Stark novel.

Mayer Nissim
Digital Spy

If this was a tiny bit smarter (think Desperado, or even Kill Bill Vol. 1) or a whole lot dumber (Machete), it would be so much nearer to hitting its target.

Pretty good action film starring The Rock. Despite the formulaic ideas displayed on-screen, this film is pretty entertaining. Although nothing too original,… More

Faster marks the return of Dwayne Johnson to action films, and he is all action and practically no talk throughout. He displays a gritty intensity, may be the… More

Just look at that movie poster, The Rock is begging you to look at his Johnson. Ridiculous.

High octane action? I get more high octane action from a bowl of cereal.
