Some movie trailers, like the first for this summer's hit "Inception," reveal absolutely nothing about the film but leave viewers with an unquenchable thirst to see it. Other trailers, like the one just released for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's action-thriller "Faster," basically leave viewers feeling like they've just watched the entire movie in the span of two-and-a-half minutes. But, as the "Faster" trailer illustrates, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
The clip shows Johnson's character Driver -- who's fresh off a 10-year prison sentence and looking to avenge his brother's murder -- methodically blowing away most of his bro's killers (there are like 10) while being pursued by a soon-to-be-retired cop (Billy Bob Thornton), a young Abercrombie-model-looking hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) and Shannon from "Lost" (Maggie Grace).
Sure, the trailer probably shouldn't have shown (or implied) some of those killings, but we're going to go out on a limb and say that the feature film will contain a few great death scenes, as well as some twists, not depicted in the clip.
After all, the trailer never really shows Johnson at his best, which is when he's pummeling baddies with his fists rather than shooting at them with a puny gun that certainly isn't as strong as his tree-trunk arms. So what if we know that a few characters bite the big one ahead of time? Thanks to Johnson, we're willing bet that "Faster" will still pack one heck of a punch when it drives into theaters on November 24.
What do you think of the trailer for "Faster"? Too revealing? Not revealing enough? Just right? Tell us in the comments!
