The Last Ride Reviews

Alas, "The Last Ride" doesn't deliver much insight into Williams or the lifestyle that killed him.

The Last Ride doesn't give us a complete picture of Hank Williams. But it does ably illustrate the final days of his life.

James does a fine job of portraying a na´ve youth whose eyes slowly open to glimpse both the pleasures and the pain of living.

Dramatically thin, formally uninspired and thematically weak, "The Last Ride" really goes nowhere.

Bearing all the hallmarks of a small-budget labor of love, The Last Ride is a leisurely paced but modestly engaging road trip that gets considerable mileage from the byplay between its two lead characters.

This one is for Hank Williams fanatics only, and Mr. Thomas puts a dark and subtle sheen on a disappointingly watery script.

The film can't really function as a proper meditation on its subject - because he's not really its subject.

Director Harry Thomason takes some unnecessary liberties in imagining Hank Williams' final days.

It portrays Williams in a generally sympathetic light without whitewashing his vice-loving, belligerent ways or mythologizing them in a bid for postmortem psychoanalysis.

At least Thomas gives a suitably burned-out performance as Williams. He's almost enough to melt your cold, cold heart.
