Final thoughts on Driven

OK the music is so bad, especially in the second half.  The part leading up to the final race was the worst and then the very end, after the race, is nearly just as bad.

The camera work is pathetic and it just doesn't feel like they shot it right for this kind of movie.  It does not feel like a sports movie at all.

It is so unrealistic that I just kept laughing at everything they did.  It's like they went out of their way to be fictitious.  Perhaps the story was swiped from someone's real life, and the filmmakers just made it all look so fake so that no one could possibly say this was their true story.  No one in his or her right mind would believe any of this.

The action scenes are cartoonish at times and even much of the dialogue is laughable.

However, I would watch it again and will eventually try to pick up the DVD.  Some of it was fun and the actors really did the best they could considering what they were working with.

Guys, Tanto could've won that race.  But you know what?  He did win it.

here's something I didn't think of until this time around. In that final race theres a seemingly 20 car crash, where one car goes into what would be Lake St. clair; seemingly exactly the same thing that happened in Germany; yet this time no drivers go to the aide of the driver in the water... and none of the announcers or fans are clamoring "my god we should really put up fences or something to stop this kind of thing from happening"
