If you couldn't tell from the title, Drive Hard quite certainly continues John Cusack's skittering down the garbage-strewn path he followed Nic Cage toward after Frozen Ground. Like with The Bag Man, Cusack here wears the sunglasses, baseball cap, and nondescript dark clothing typical of the celebrity hoping no one sees them rooting through the bargain bin. He plays a thief who abducts a retired racer to be his getaway driver in a bank robbery. Thomas Jane plays said driver--and he even wears Thor's Rush wig, just so you make no mistake he's a racing guy. Together, they drive and shout a lot.
There's no mistake this looks like it was born for video, and its coming from the director of Megiddo: The Omega Code 2, Leprechaun 4: In Space, and Tyrannosaurus Azteca (starring Ian Ziering as Cortés) does nothing to alleviate such a feeling. Still, if you watch the trailer below, you might be surprised at how this isn't nearly as bad as a modern John Cusack vehicle called Drive Hard could be. 50 Cent isn't even in it!
