About the Movie
Former hotshot racecar driver Peter Roberts (Thomas Jane) traded the winner’s circle for safety, stability, a pile of debts and a 9 to 5 job as a beginners’ driving instructor. But his life shifts into overdrive when mysterious out-of-towner Simon Keller (John Cusack) shows up for a driving lesson and hijacks Peter to be his getaway driver in a $9 million heist. Now these unlikely fugitives are on a white knuckle race to stay one step ahead of the mobsters who want their money back and the corrupt cops who will kill anyone who gets in their way. Peter and Simon just might have a have a chance, if they can stick to the plan, drive faster than the bullets being fired at them…and don’t kill each other first.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Normally, I would have no objection to being trapped in a car with John Cusack, but that was before I saw "Drive Hard."
Rotten: Approximately as unforgettable as its title ...
Rotten: If you're not expecting too much, Drive Hard is mindlessly entertaining, but it lacks that spark of madness that might have made it truly fun.
Rotten: Cusack and Jane look like they're improvising much of the time, and while that doesn't lead to a better movie, the off-the-cuff approach is the best thing in the film.
Boring! It tries to be funny but it's not. I turned it off, after watching it for about 30 minutes, because I was falling asleep.
Yup, really really bad
Move along, nothing good to see here. Nothing at all. Keep on browsing, just go rent something else. Don’t watch this movie. Do not watch this movie. Generally I’m a fan of John Cusack and even Tom Jane. But this was not a well put together film. The “supporting” cast is terrible. The movie feels like an episode of a bad TV show. Don’t watch it.
Could have been much better.
First, I’m a Tom Jane fan and a huge John Cusack. There are very few Cusack movies I haven’t seen and because of that, I had to watch this. Now that I’ve seen it, I have to say I’m disappointed in the production value. Seems, the action wasn’t believable and the chemistry between the lead actors didn’t really take off till the end. Also, It felt like this movie was incomplete. There could have been more backstory. Its almost as if this movie was intended to be a comedy that didn’t deliver. Also, it was a little out of whack having the movie done with the down under crew. Lastly, I think wardrobe and styling needed some heavy lifting. Both lead actors have unflattering haircuts and Jane’s workout needed more training. Ouch!. Love you guys though. Wouldn’t mind seeing you two in another project.
