I like Ryan O’Neal. Or, at least I like him in Barry Lyndon, that being my second favorite Kubrick film. I also like Isabelle Adjani, particularly for her wild-eyed performance in Possession. Not only are they both in The Driver, but there is some top-notch car chasing to behold as well. While the plot is your basic tenacious cop vs. cool as ice criminal situation, it’s the no-nonsense action and hard-edged tone that make it worth watching.
DIRECTOR: Peter Berg
FLICKCHART FUTURE: Maybe the worst big-budget trailer of all time? I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt because there is some strong talent behind it but it really seems like this will end up being to the Transformers series as Pearl Harbor was to Titanic. Only worse, because the Transformers movies kinda already suck.
