‘Faster’ is 2010’s Dirty Harry and its star, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, inhabits his character as menacingly as the perilous Clint Eastwood ever did. This is a serious revenge thriller with some moments of gun slinging action; the jokes are absent and the raw pounding revenge only moves one way – forward. The action is light so don’t expect any Jason Bourne choreographed fight sequences or Michael Bay explosions as the star walks away unscathed. With ‘Faster’ you get a deeply tormented man, hell-bent on revenge as he points, shoots and kills his victims without consideration of any consequences or regard for the law. It is genuine, uncensored, R rated fun.
