    Got this today and it's kinda disappointing.

    Not the best film I've ever seen really.

    Picture and sound are good but it's just not.... Formula 1.

    This whole CART racing thing just isn't as interesting.

    <br />6 out of 10.

    Well I must admit I have a weekness for Sallone films.I know most of them are complete crap but I still find something endearing about a Stallone movie even in todays climate of non-high concept movies!<br />I have ordered Driven from dvdboxoffice at about £13 and am still awaiting delivery.<br />Its probably a purchase I will live to regret but what the hey - everyone has questionable titles in their collection....don't they?

    Well yeah, if you wanted to watch a good movie once a week, not too much to ask it? You would have to buy/rent 52 films a year. How many quality films have come out this year? Well put it this way I could count them on one hand. This forces every one into questionable purchases or we'd all be watching the same films over and over again. So what was I watching yesterday?<br /> Not BLADE on LD again! <br />The next two months I'll be buying, St.Wa.Ep.1, St.Tr.Th.Mo.Pi, Pe.Ha and Fi.Fa.

    Got Driven this morning and just watched it...

    It really is quite poor and would suggest that you don't buy it. The picture quality is good and it sounds great but as for the movie...awful.

    received this disc yesterday from play247, ordered cos i like cart racing and also a chance to test out an rce title on my player <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

    loved the sound staging, interesting approach to drivers perspectives during racing, loved the coin trick <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

    all in all, i dont regret buying this one <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    Just finished watching it and loved every minute, yes its predicatable but its pure escapism and a great home cinema movie.

    Has some great crashes and some real good stand out moments, the one big completly unbeliavble two car race ( not wanting to spoil things ) was great fun and when fat boy slim kicks in towards the end you can find yourself hooked.

    Definatly one for people who like there movies fun and loud, very very enjoyable

    Although I'm a sucker for Stallone movies I was expecting this to be total pants after poor reviews and bad word-of-mouth. I must say was quite pleasantly suprised!
    Ok so it's not high-brow arthouse or Oscar material but i found myself thoroughly entertained for 2 hours (maybe I ought to get out more?)
    The picture and sound quality is quite superb - demo material infact.

    Certainly one I will have to file under "Guilty Pleasures"

    ;)
