There's a great film to be made of this rather insane tale, but Driven is categorically not it. Too much is made of the veneer of the high life, the parties, and the disgusting wealth that masks the rot at the lives of all the protagonists.

A promising comedic caper that slowly meanders through very familiar territory. When it finally shifts gears, it's too little, too late. [Full review in Spanish]

There's not a lot obviously wrong with Driven, but it just feels like a cast and crew that is just going through the motions. Such a wild story is told in a disappointingly vanilla manner.

If someone put their mind to it and wrote a killer script, John DeLorean's story would make for one heck of a flick. Unfortunately, Driven isn't it.

Driven is a film that, despite a unique structure and talented cast, doesn't feel as inventive as it sets out to be.
November 8, 2019
The comic tone sits rather uneasily with this limited drama, and you wonder if going more blackly comic might have made this more engaging. As it is, this is mildly entertaining but largely forgettable.

There's a really good story in there, but the makers chose to focus on all the wrong parts.

"Driven" is a lot like a DeLorean: Looks great, but moves slow - if it even moves at all.

Someday there might be an entertaining and insightful movie about the life of Jon DeLorean. This isn't it.

November 8, 2019
Unfortunately, the film's jaunty, comedic tone too often backfires, not helped by Sudeikis, who doesn't seem sure whether he is playing for laughs or not.

Fans of hilarious hairpieces and outlandish acting are best served by the end result; anyone else can safely give this a miss.

Nick Hamm's period biopic attempts to turn this tall-sounding tale into American Hustle on wheels: alas, the results have all the dramatic horsepower of a mobility scooter.

August 14, 2019
Largely whiffs on creating tension, trying to a make a thriller out of inherently mundane tale of a rich man trying to buy nobility to cover his own insecurities.

August 21, 2019
This is a saga of greed, envy, power and self-serving behavior writ extra-large, but the resulting film feels curiously small and underwhelming.
November 8, 2019
Hamm and writer Colin Bateman are far too soft on everyone involved, presenting the two "heroes" as misguided innocents ensnared in a web of street crime and FBI corruption.

It's like someone got hold of all the wardrobe rejects from 'Boogie Nights' and built a movie around them.

August 16, 2019
... captures some of the glamour and the sleaze inherent in its story, yet rarely dives deeper to provide fresh insight.
August 15, 2019
Driven tells the wrong side of the story, but it's not too enlightening about that other side, either.

November 11, 2019
Sudeikis, alas, is no Cruise and his screen persona is too lightweight to inject the film with genuine empathy or to make it anything other than a disposable teaser for the deeper, darker DeLorean drama that will inevitably follow.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 1, 2019
Driven skirts over the facts in order to offer audiences a light-hearted dramedy reminiscent of American Hustle (2013).
