#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – A lone man, recently released from prison, seeks out the people from his past who he believes betrayed him. While he forces each to atone for their sins, he must also face what meting out vengeance will do to his immortal soul. Meanwhile, he’s not the only one looking to settle old scores: hired by the man responsible for the events which led him to prison, an eccentric contract killer follows his every move. Scenes of them crossing paths, sometimes violently, are interspersed with the assassin’s self-realizations of how to deal with struggles within his own life. As if old enemies and hired guns aren’t enough, a young female detective begrudgingly works alongside a veteran investigator looking to simply survive his last two weeks on the force before retirement, as they seek out the brazen ex-con who has been blazing a path of gasoline-powered destruction in his vintage Chevelle.
Plot: After 10 years in prison, Driver is now a free man with a single focus – hunting down the people responsible for brutally murdering his brother.

Dwayne Johnson handles himself adequately well in Faster
This is the second of two movies I watched with my movie theatre-working friend today (The first was Tangled). I was partly hesitant to watch what I thought was going to be an exploitative revenge flick starring a former wrestler once known as The Rock. To my pleasant surprise, it was a little more than that though there was the requisite shootings that earned this an R-rating though not a hard one like that for The Expendables last August. In the leading role, Dwayne Johnson moves well and handles what dialogue he has adequately well. And co-star Billy Bob Thornton does his usual fine turn as the about-to-retire cop coming after him. Although the story is handled seriously enough, I had an “MST3K” moment when another cop played by Carla Gugino asks “Haven’t I seen this guy before?” when looking at Johnson’s surveillance tape and I replied back to the screen “Yeah, in Race to Witch Mountain!” (I have to admit here that I actually said “Escape” before my friend corrected me.) And when “Lost” veteran Maggie Grace appeared on screen, this same friend thought she was in Son-in-Law with Pauly Shore possibly mistaking her for the role Gugino played there. (I corrected him but I don’t know if he got it) By the way, Ms. Grace seems here mostly for eye candy though she appearing in a black bikini is the closest to skin showing here. Another star from the TV show I just mentioned, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, has a great scene with Dwayne as a preacher who was previously part of the gang that had his brother killed asking for forgiveness and willing to forgive him as well. Not every subplot made sense or seemed necessary, but it was a mostly enjoyably diverting 90 or so minutes that made me admire the way director George Tillman, Jr.-previously known for Soul Food and Men of Honor-handled the whole thing. So on that note, Faster is worth a look.
A solid character centered revenge flick
Oh oh, The Rock finally playing in a good movie! He deserved it. The way I see it, he is disadvantaged as an actor by the fact he was a famous wrestler. They never take him seriously. But in this film he got a break, not because of the complexity of the role, but the one of the script.
About the movie, it is a classic revenge film, in which the main character goes after the people who wronged him, but where it shines is the character portrayal. There are no cardboard characters (except for Carla Gugino’s, which is the most incompetent cop I’ve seen in a while), and the actors involved are shown in all of their roles, good, bad and in between.
There are some flaws in the film, but mainly the police work and the horrible title. I’ve postponed watching the movie because I thought it was some sort of TripleX meets Gone in 60 Seconds thing. I am happy to say it was not. It was more like Kill Bill meets Crash, but that’s a bit of a stretch.
Bottom line: a movie worth watching and an excellent accomplishment for a movie of the genre.
