80
The film never outshines its influences, but as back-to-basics action filmmaking, it's often superb.
70
Movieline
Built for speed, and for an action-savvy audience who can appreciate a throwaway vengeance flick for exactly what it is.
63
Faster is meat-and-potatoes action with a side of crazy.
63
A pure thriller, all blood, no frills, in which a lot of people get shot, mostly in the head.
60
A stripped-down affair, from title to characters to plot. It never strives to be more, instead concentrating on making the most of its self-imposed limitations.
50
This is meat-and-potatoes (and bullets) action filmmaking, although, really, that title's got to go.

Chicago Tribune
Dwayne Johnson leaves his lovable self behind in the violent but bland Faster.
50
L.A. Weekly
The archetypal names are pure Walter Hill, the single-minded grudge mission borrowed from Donald Westlake's Hunter books - fine antecedents, though director George Tillman Jr.'s style is anything but terse, indulging rote slo-mo swagger set to secondhand musical cues.
40
Boxoffice Magazine
Watching Driver peel rubber proves B grade action movies are a welcome diversion in the era of CGI blockbusters. If only Faster didn't fizzle each time Johnson put down his gun.
25
Faster grafts that genre's style onto a deadbeat script and leaves it to Johnson - as deadly focused as a gunsight - to make it all believable.
