Movies: Faster **


George Tillman Jr's drama sets off at a fair lick and rarely pauses for breath.

After emerging from a 10-year stretch, Driver (Dwayne Johnson, above) sets out to find the swine who double-crossed him.

It has a half-decent twist up its sleeve and takes a certain knowing delight in its essential trashiness.

But nothing has any right to be this badly written, and there are some very ropey performances along the way too, especially from Oliver Jackson-Cohen as a ludicrously wealthy and accomplished rival contract killer.
