THE LAST RIDE on Blu-ray (review)

Based on the controversial life story of singer-songwriter, Hank Williams, THE LAST RIDE tells the powerful tale of country music’s original bad boy.  The man, the myth and the music come together when Williams travels from Alabama to a series of New Year’s shows in West Virginia and Ohio.  This remarkable journey leads straight into the heart and soul of the legendary he takes one last shot at redemption.  Featuring all-new versions of Hank Williams’ greatest songs, this emotional tale of hope and truth is one you’ll never forget.

With 11 number one songs throughout his career, Williams’ music continues to touch people’s lives long after his passing 60 years ago.  Former President Bill Clinton has said of THE LAST RIDE that it “takes us back to rural America in the 1950s, tells the story simply, and uses the music deftly, both to intensify the drama and to remind us of the timeless genius of Hank Williams.”  Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee added “it’s a beautifully crafted and creative vehicle for telling the story of almost every gifted musician or actor who must reconcile the desire within to simply be a great artist and the demands of the public to be an accessible and accommodating celebrity.”  

THE LAST RIDE Blu-ray and DVD includes a making of featurette.

A Look Inside The Last Ride


This movie is ok but nothing to really get excited about. Well I don't think so anyways but maybe if you are/were a fan of Hank Williams you might enjoy this movie more. The acting was decent and story line was ok but personally this movies just wasn't my cup of tea.

I give this 2 out of 5
