Ride Along Review (No Spoilers)

MV5BNjU4NzYzOTY1MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTAyNTc1MDE@._V1_SX214_I thought the trailer was funny, how was the movie? Well, it…

was actually pretty good. It is in no words original, but it is a definitely enjoyable 99 minutes of your time. The film squanders Ice Cube on basic stupid bits that Ice Cube is used to doing. As for Kevin Hart, this is where the film gets most of it’s energy. The comedy comes from Hart’s prattling mouth and even the audience gets something from his incompetence. There are a few parts that feel like they are dragged on forever by the director and writers. It’s best to wait till rental for this one. Even though it may be fun with a group, it is no Citizen Kane. Although it January it may be considered as so.

Verdict: A fun, predictable, buddy cop film that is good enough for a rental, and no repeat theater viewings. C+
