Like an average Uber ride, the film passes quickly and doesn't leave a lasting impression.
Ultimately, "Ride" feels a little like a drama class exercise, with the leads digging deep into their characters' motivations and feelings. All three nail their parts. But their story never gets out of first gear.
Competently crafted enough to work well as a résumé-builder for its participants, but also underwhelmingly conceived enough to impress viewers as little more than a forgettable time-killer.
Tapping cleverly into one of the newest perils in urban living, Ride will please most audiences looking for a Friday night thrill ride.
...Ride is a good time. The characters are smart, the script is tight, and nothing about either is dumbed down for the audience.
It isn't exactly a revolution in filmmaking, but it's entertaining enough over the course of its brief runtime to not wear out. At times it's funny, at others it's tense, and throughout it shines bright with a passion for the city of Los Angeles.
... feels completely detached from reality and runs out of gas even at its abbreviated length.
[T]he movie rushes through its high-stakes mind game, evading the consequences ... and arriving at a conclusion that doesn't resolve anything.
...the threesome are entertaining, and Brill, as the crazed Bruno, has his moments. He's like a younger Peter Sarsgaard, who has mastered the art of playing smarmy.
In desperate need of at least half hour of narrative, and better ideas.
"Ride" is a one-act play trying to be a big screen pulse-pounder, but there's not enough here to fill what's already a scant run time of 76 minutes.
Strip out the thriller moments and you have an interesting film, instead, we're left with a mediocre thriller that phones in the final act.
