Don't waste your time.
31 August 2004 | by (Annalong, N. Ireland) – See all my reviews

Thank God this film has all but vanished now, because it's a complete waste of space. I was expecting a lot of cool vehicular action after seeing the trailer on the internet, but while the film delivers that kind of action, it is bogged down too much with the soap opera stuff with Sam Jones (FLASH GORDON) trying to prevent his rich in-laws from getting custody of his daughter, or the stuff with Jones trying to win Catherine Bach's heart.

Don Swayze, brother of Patrick, is okay as a bad guy but he really needed a better movie to display his talents in. DRIVING FORCE is a complete stinker, through and through. Avoid.
