For some reason some get the big budget treatment and others seem to be left to the straight to video or limited run route. The latest is The Last Ride focusing on Hank Williams senior, but takes an interesting direction with the tale, but does it deliver? The Last Ride follows the end of 1952, with the best years of Hank Williams's career behind him, he hires a local kid to drive him through the Appalachian countryside for a pair of New Year's shows in West Virginia and Ohio. This is one of those films that is a bit hit and miss depending on how you look at it. On one side it is pretty intriguing the direction and time period that they chose to go with to tell this story of Hank Williams. While entertaining it is almost a bit of a letdown as this isn't really a Hank Williams story at all, but still is. This film plays more of a character study that relies mostly on the performances and the direction in hopes to tell this story in a way that is different than most of its kind. Through most of the film the lead character has no idea who he is driving around, which in turn makes it engaging waiting for that big reveal moment when he knows, but sadly that point never comes. There is no doubt he realizes, but it isn't played up as much as you might think and will probably be anticipating. On the flip side the performances are all pretty well executed keeping what could have been a slow boring film engaging and worth the time spent. There are some strange choices regarding green screen at times for some driving moments, but also seems to give it an old film feeling that kind of works with the time period.This isn't a perfect film by any means, but is interesting on a few levels. The choice of what time they chose to make the focal point and lack of ever using any of him performing in the movie or even the soundtrack makes it a big risk but does manage to payoff. The overall film plays out more like a well-made TV movie, but these days is not necessarily a bad thing. Filled with a great cast and easily one of Henry Thomas' best performances in some time The Last Ride manages to keep your attention and take you on a trip worth riding along for, especially for those that are fans of Williams. Just know going into this film it is not the story of Williams struggle in the music industry, but his struggles in life when it was probably time to hang up his hat.

Shartnado (br) wrote: E.T. would have been a more believable Hank Williams than Henry Thomas. I really wanted to get in to this movie, but it was a dumbed down version that felt like a Lifetime movie. It felt more like a high school play , it did not do Hank Williams justice. Or anyone that wanted to learn about him.

Nick M (kr) wrote: Great movie! Well worth my time. I don't care for the critics reviews, after all they're reviews don't often represent the views of the average movie goer. Love the historical side and the glimpse of Hank Sr.'s final days. This one wasn't meant to be Oscar worthy, but it was definitely worth it.

Michele G (fr) wrote: I loved seeing how Henry Thomas has grown from a child actor into a really talented adult actor. His portrayal of Hank Williams was great. I loved his easy going reactions to life and it was so interesting to see that Hank WIlliams was human just like the rest of us. I also liked that it didn't concentrate on the music but the person. Its a great movie that everyone should go see.
Melody G (nl) wrote: Great film! Performances by Henry Thomas and Jesse James are incredible. This is not a bio pic, but is film about the last few days (hence the name, The Last Ride) of Hank Williams and the relationship he has with his driver. It gives us a glimpse of the man who became a legend. The music is also fantastic. If nothing else, you'll love the soundtrack.
