Drive Angry is a 2011 "grindhouse"-style action movie that stars Nicolas Cage as a man who escapes from Hell in order to save a kidnapped infant from a cult that also murdered his daughter. The film was released in 3D and co-stars Amber Heard, Billy Burke, David Morse, and William Fichtner.
The following weapons were used in the film Drive Angry:
John Milton (Nicolas Cage) carries an Colt M1911A1 pistol as his sidearm throughout the film. Piper (Amber Heard) also handles the gun on a couple of occasions. Judging from the typical dark grey finish, old safety lever and linear barrel, the gun is a genuine M1911A1 Army version, not a more common Series 70 often used to impersonate the gun. Milton's original handgun was supposedly going to be a .357 Magnum revolver. After the "God Killer" was made, Milton's sidearm was changed to an Colt M1911A1, to be less similar. The gun has two visible jam, exaclty when Piper shoots the cop and then when Milton reloads after shooting a cultist woman driving a pick-up.

Colt Gold Cup National Match
