After 10 years in prison, Driver (Dwayne Johnson) has a singular focus - to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his imprisonment. Now a free man with a deadly to-do list in hand, he's finally on his mission...but with two men on his trail - a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) just days from retirement, and a young egocentric hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) with a flair for the art of killing and a newfound worthy opponent. The hunter is also the hunted. It's a do or die race to the list's finish as the mystery surrounding his brother's murder deepens, and new details emerge along the way hinting that Driver's list may be incomplete.

Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
By the end of this underwritten wanna-B movie, only the black-and-white muscle car is left standing with its dignity intact.Dan Kois, Washington Post, 11.23.2010
The redeeming factors of this heavy-handed, dumbed down movie for action-loving young males are its eccentricities and contradictions.Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile, 01.30.2011
While it sticks to the formula of a revenge thriller, the characters are fully realised, surprisingly transforming this into a compelling human drama.James Fletcher, FILMINK (Australia), 02.01.2011
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.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 11.24.2010
