4.0 out of 5 stars Goofy, Over-the-Top Mayhem = Instant Cult Film, May 29, 2011
By 
This review is from: Drive Angry (DVD)
Drive Angry has everything you could want from a trashy action film: cool muscle cars, over-the-top shoot-outs, larger than life baddies, and a cool good guy with a mission.

There is an audio commentary by director Patrick Lussier and co-screenwriter Todd Farmer. Lussier jokingly refers to Drive Angry as his "subtle, gentle road movie," and battles through a bad case of laryngitis, which makes it difficult at times to understand what he's trying to say. But he soldiers on with Farmer as they talk about how the film was made. The two men tell all kinds of filming anecdotes as they talk us through filming. Lussier points out that Clint Eastwood's protagonist in High Plains Drifter was the model for Nicolas Cage's character. They give shout-outs to various crew members' contributions on this solid track.

"How To: Drive Angry" is one of the better promotional featurettes. Amazingly, the studio gave the filmmakers the creative freedom to do a hard R-rated supernatural action film. They talk about shooting in 3D as opposed to converting it in post-production. The filmmakers also talk about working with a modest budget and solving certain problems creatively as opposed to throwing a lot of money at it a la Michael Bay. It's nice to see that many of the stunts in the film were done practically.

"Milton's Mayhem" is an amusing extra that compiles all of Milton's action sequences and attributes a point system to every punch and gunshot like something out of a video game.

Finally, there are two deleted scenes with optional commentary by Lussier and Farmer. We see a little more with Piper and her boyfriend and another scene with the Accountant that were both rightly cut.
