A stint in prison usually has one of two effects on a man – it either breaks him down or makes him stronger. For Driver (Dwayne Johnson), a 10-year sentence proved the latter. His strength was not just fueled by time, but also by a hunger to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his own imprisonment. Untouchable on the ‘inside,’ he made plenty of enemies in prison - men who were counting the days until his release so they could exact their own revenge on the outside. Now, on the day of his release, he is hell-bent on reaping vengeance upon the four men responsible for his brother’s murder. With a list of names and addresses in hand, he sprints out of the prison gates and is immediately on his mission. No regard for witnesses. No finesse to the acts. Within hours of Driver eliminating the first name on the list, two men are on his trail – Cop (Billy Bob Thornton), a veteran police officer just days from retirement, and Killer (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), a young egocentric hitman with a flair for the art of killing. The hunter is now also the hunted. Dwayne Johnson (“Welcome to the Jungle“, “Walking Tall“), Billy Bob Thornton (“Monster’s Ball“) and newcomer Oliver Jackson-Cohen star alongside Maggie Grace (“Taken“) and Moon Bloodgood (“Terminator Salvation“) in Faster. The action-thriller is directed by George Tillman Jr. (“Notorious“, “Men of Honor“).
