Did anyone actually like DRIVE ANGRY? I know people went to see it, but did anyone like it?
It was braindead fun. If you didn't like Fichtner at least, something is wrong.
I have no idea why people rave about Brick. The idea of setting a noir in a high school could have worked with a really good writer, but Brick's story was so generic that once you figured out who had been transplanted into which stock character - which wasn't hard, if you'd seen much in the way of noir - you knew the entire plot of the movie. I didn't walk out on the off chance that the form would be subverted in some way and surprise me, but I was disappointed.
