Here is the plot description for “Faster”:

After 10 years in prison, Driver (Dwayne Johnson) has a singular focus: to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his imprisonment.

Now a free man with a deadly to-do list in hand, he’s finally on his mission. But he has two men on his trail: a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) just days from retirement and a young, ego-centric hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) with a flair for the art of killing. The hunter is also the hunted. It’s a do-or-die race to the list’s finish as the mystery surrounding his brother’s murder deepens and new details emerge along the way hinting that Driver’s list may be incomplete.

Dwayne Johnson (“Gridiron Gang,” “The Scorpion King,” “The Mummy Returns”), Billy Bob Thornton (“Eagle Eye,” “Monster’s Ball”) and newcomer Oliver Jackson-Cohen star with Carla Gugino (“Watchmen”), Maggie Grace (“Taken”) and Moon Bloodgood (“Terminator Salvation”) in “Faster”: a co-production between CBS Films (the film division within CBS Corp.) and TriStar Pictures (a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment).

George Tillman Jr. (“Notorious,” “Men of Honor,” “Soul Food”) directs from a screenplay by Joe Gayton and Tony Gayton. “Faster” wrapped principal photography in April 2010 and will hit U.S. theaters on Nov. 24, 2010. The film is produced by Castle Rock Entertainment’s Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer along with Tony Gayton and State Street Pictures’ Robert Teitel. Joe Gayton and Dara Weintraub are executive producers.

The ultimate revenge is always to live your life to the fullest and being happy, no matter what people do. It gets people mad to no end! Other than that, the greatest revenge is not in our hands and karma will eventually come full circle.

Ultimate Revenge

The ultimate revenge is calling someone a penisbreath then running out of the room as though you are on fire. I have found this an effective tool when ending conflict.

Ultimate revenge

Sometime revenge is so powerful it feels as if the need for it is the only thing that sustains us in times of trouble. When you can though I think the best revenge is letting the person know that you are aware of their error, sin or crime and to then let it go. Turning the other cheek is (at times) the best form of revenge, the person will think you are planning something even when your not, that fear alone will do more harm than any physical thing you could do.
