Sure, the movie isn't for everyone. Logic and tactics are thrown right out the car window, and the three interlocking stories of violent men might not be for everyone. Both Driver's (The Rock) the Cop's (Billy Bob) stories are entertaining, but I couldn't care less about Killer's plight, nor his girlfriend/fiance (the always annoying Maggie Grace).
In the end, this film will feel right at home amongst 70's action flicks, and it has enough noir hints to satisfy those looking for a downer film. It's not going to win any awards, or maybe even be that memorable in a few years, but for 98 minutes, I was thoroughly entertained.
