Dreary Drunk Driving Drama
4 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lawyer Richard Dix knows when a rich man's whiny son, Elisha Cook Jr, gets a snootful of the good stuff, and then gets behind the wheel, THE DEVIL IS DRIVING. But, when his career is on the line, will he sacrifice his career, or the safety of the general public?

This is one of those ripped from the headlines movies that can be real good with the right kind of star, and a script that is interesting. Alas, though, this is much fun as a prohibitionist tract on the dangers of drinking, and the plot is full of non- surprises. Dix tries -- but he is not at his best in a crusading attorney role. Elsha Cook (who has all his hair and looks so young here) does well as the creepy little son who never draws a sober breath outside of a courtroom. But, most of the movie is preaching, and more preaching against DUI. A worthy cause, but dull cinema.

So, unless you believe that any movie with Richard Dix (or Elisha Cook) has redeeming social value, you can pass on this one.
