With Dwayne Johnson’s Faster hitting theaters next week, CBS Films has provided us with 4 clips from Johnson’s return to kicking ass. While I’m under embargo from saying too much, I don’t think they’ll mind if I tell you Faster is exactly what I hoped it’d be: a lean, violent, revenge flick that shows what Johnson can do when he’s not making family films.
What I especially like about the movie is that it never wastes time trying to give Johnson’s character too much backstory, or trying to make him out to be a saint. The movie starts with him leaving jail and almost immediately he kills someone. That’s Faster. If you’re into watching Johnson going around extracting revenge on the folks that killed his brother, you’ll like this film. Hit the jump to watch 4 clips.
For all of our previous Faster coverage, click here. You can check out interviews, trailers, on set interviews, posters and images. Faster also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Moon Bloodgood, and Maggie Grace.
As always, are the clips are in the player below. Once you push play you might have to watch a pre-roll ad and then all the clips will play in order. Sorry about the pre-roll, pays for the bandwidth.
