70
Stripped for action without a moment wasted on unnecessary dialogue, exposition or nuances.
70
Built for speed, and for an action-savvy audience who can appreciate a throwaway vengeance flick for exactly what it is.
63
A pure thriller, all blood, no frills, in which a lot of people get shot, mostly in the head.
63
Faster is meat-and-potatoes action with a side of crazy.
63
Grim but holds the attention; it does not, however, offer the kind of mindless action excursion that many will be anticipating.
63
Plays as if Tillman studied the works of director Michael Mann ("Heat"), but got a C on the final exam.
50
The perfect vehicle for Johnson's charm and talents is still out there. It's certainly not in the muscle car he pilots in Faster.
50
Tillman, who made a splash last year with his hip-hop hit "Notorious," does a nice job of calling into question the assumption, shared by most genre films, that vengeance is the only right course of action.
40
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is overhyped as Billy Bob Thornton is slow and steady.
25
Faster grafts that genre's style onto a deadbeat script and leaves it to Johnson - as deadly focused as a gunsight - to make it all believable.

No matter how guilty our knucklehead-protagonist's victims supposedly are, it's difficult to maintain a rooting interest.
