no cradar

Struggling L.A. actor James (Jessie T. Usher) makes money by driving in a ride share program Ryde. He is taken with his fare Jessica C. (Bella Thorne). She invites him in for a drink but he continues to drive instead. Later in the night, he picks up a man he assumes to be Bruno A. (Will Brill).

Will Brill sells it too hard. He's like a flashing red neon light and it's hard to be surprised by anything. The best that can be said is that he makes things uncomfortable which should motivate James to get rid of him sooner rather than later. There is no reason why James doesn't insist on doing only one stop. If he takes the $100, he would probably go off the program. It becomes all James' fault for being stupid with no cra-dar. It's a basic need of the job to spot the crazies. This would work so much better without Bruno being annoyingly aggressive. It's an uncomfortable movie and it could be good if it's written better.

Not worth sharing this ride

'Ride' did have a cool cover and an interesting idea going for it. The low rating and negative reviews did make it apprehensive admittedly, but as someone who always gives every film that interests me or comes my way a fair chance with an open mind it was seen anyway.

While not a complete waste of time, 'Ride' is not my definition of a good film. To me, there was a lot wrong with it and it is a very weak film in general. 'Ride' does not deliver on any promise it had, which may not have been massive but the film was hardly devoid of it, and was the complete opposite of what it could have been. This is being said with no malice, bias or prejudice (actually with regret), part of me wanted to not be as bad as has been said and have been known quite a few times, especially in my early years as a reviewer here, to go against the grain in not caring for a positively reviewed film or liking a panned one.

There are good things. The music is not obvious or intrusive and didn't feel at odds with the rest of the film. Visually, 'Ride' is reasonably slick and doesn't look too cheap.

While the acting is hardly great, the actors do do their best and their performances came over as committed and not overdone.

Unfortunately, the script and especially the story brings 'Ride' down. The script is very awkward sounding and doesn't flow, some of it is very difficult to take seriously. The story is excessively dull and has no surprises, tension or suspense. Instead it is ridiculous and implausible, with so many intelligence-insulting moments and parts that don't make sense or make one throw a hissy fit in confusion.

On top of that, the ending is extremely abrupt, it ends just like that with no resolution and gives the sense that the film was left incomplete. The characters irritate and there are frequent instances of them behaving without any logic or intelligence, could not believe that the film had characters behaving so stupidly, vaguely and illogically.

Summing up, weak. 3/10 Bethany Cox

Take a Ride with ... us

Now without having seen the trailer and without having read anything about the movie, before I watched this (at a festival), I can say that this was quite predictable. You can feel and see where the passenger is going with this. There might be a twist or two that may come as a surprise. That only will happen if you don't start thinking ahead of course.

No pun intended with the last remark in case you were wondering. Now the actors are more than decent in this and considering the restraints the script sets them, this is quite nicely told and paced (another one of those puns). I know that some people are appaled by the ending (it's quite strange), but if you were with the movie up to that point - well stay and remember that feeling. Small budget, nice idea and enough suspension to entice you - if you let the movie do that
