Nothing annoys more than an action flick that wastes time hovering over small, unnecessary details and the director of Faster is mercifully aware of that. He is to the point making this story of revenge short and sweet.

The movie neatly compiles flashbacks, motives and investigations making it clear to the viewer where the story begins and where it’s heading. It begins with Driver’s (Dwayne Johnson) past, and the death of his brother. So strong is his hatred for the culprits that not even a shadow of a smile escapes his lips as he strides out of prison towards their deaths.

A lone walker with no allies he doesn’t waste a minute as he moves from target to target canceling the names of his hit list. However a faceless member of the gang, the man behind the whole coup is not taking any chances and hires a ‘sophisticated’ killer (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), to ensure Driver reaches is grave.

Meanwhile, tough lady Detective Cicero (Carla Gugino), has to overcome her differences with her drug-addict, rehab-seasoned partner on the job (Billy Bob Thornton) to track Driver and predict his next move. The pace is quick and certain character traits quite amusing. The killer, for example, has psychological issues and a shrink, and he may be skilled and competitive but beneath all the pride is a coward.

Standing in stark contrast is Driver’s fearless attitude despite the lack of skill. The cinematography matches the pace and some powerful scenes lend humanity and morality to the whole business of revenge. This particular one anyway.

There is a pointless, cheesy love story thrown in as the cocky killer romances his blonde lithe lady love. Apart from that it wraps up quickly, and when that one remaining face is unveiled it won’t be such a surprise to a regular CSI watcher. It’s not brilliant but it isn’t baseless either. Just like the revenge it’s quick and painless.

The movie has you engaged while it runs but doesn’t leave an impression once you walk out.
