Dwayne Johnson has dropped "The Rock," along with the comedy and family fare, to go hard-core vigilante in Faster. A good career move? A good movie?
"Since it doesn't rely on the cliches that riddle the typical action movie, Faster feels fresher. It's closer to a drama with a determined look and moral compass than a bunch of bullet ballets or car chases strung together."
— Bill Gibron, filmcritic.com
"...too bad an unnecessary major character and some silly last-act twists and turns almost ruin the fun."
— Peter Paras, E!
"...a pure thriller, all blood, no frills, in which a lot of people get shot, mostly in the head."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...an overpacked suitcase disguised as a movie..."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...a turgid, ultraviolent parable of revenge and forgiveness..."
— Stephen Holden, New York Times
