Driven Reviews

November 14, 2019
It won't have much cinematic impact...but I quite enjoyed it, even though it's spectacularly wiggy.
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.

The film gives Pace a blank canvas on which to deploy more screen presence than everyone else combined, often just by directing a deep gaze in the general direction of the camera.
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.

November 8, 2019
Screenwriter and novelist Colin Bateman has here scripted a flashy but watchable true-crime thriller in the style of American Made (2017) or Blow (2001).

November 7, 2019
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.

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

Jason Sudeikis specializes in characters hiding canniness with slightly sleazy charm, and so he is ideally cast as Hoffman.

The shifts in tone generally work, and credit is also due these characters and the performances behind them.

A joyride more interested in the journey than in any significant destination.

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

"Driven" is a good-natured, divertingly jolly mess.
September 9, 2018
If the film's finally an entertaining ride, it is because Sudeikis takes the audience by the hand through this very unlikely story that was inspired by true events.

Pace gives it something like a heart, albeit a closed, melancholic one: that's some acting, and it's maybe more than these agreeably derivative proceedings deserve.
