THE LAST RIDE ***1/2 Great title for an okay spy/action/heist-gone-wrong tale that has an ex-convict (Dennis Hopper, nearly 70 years of age at the time) getting back at the foul cop-turned-forces manager (Fred Ward) who sold him out in the first place. A young renegade (Chris Carmack, admittedly impressive), the grandson of the former jailer, gets caught up in the mess when he decides to help his long-lost grandfather carry out the plan. The script is similar to that of 'The Recruit' and 'Partners' since it doesn't cover much ground or develops its characters very well in spite of a promising storyline. (I think Rob Cohen should stick to directing...) It's a real shame; still, fairly good entertainment.
