Rad says that he knows Benjamin did not commit suicide because the gun was found in his right hand, while Benjamin was left-handed. However, in an earlier scene in which Rad and Benjamin face off with a trio of thugs, Benjamin pulls his gun with his right and aims it with his right hand for several moments. Then, the gun appears in his left hand. Finally, he puts the gun away on his left side, using his right hand. See more »

14 December 2003 | by eatsoapSee all my reviews

It was windy day after two nights out on the town and little sleep when i rented "Ride or die" for a mate and I to watch in our ultimately hungover states. Being in that state, I wasn't in the mood for anything too heavy, so looked for nothing more than an action popcorn flick to enjoy. Which is not what we got. Ride or die feels like nothing more than someone who got hold of a camera and wrote an entire screenplay to make their mates look "cool" (which doesn't work anyway), which also says little for the acting, on a whole unconvincing altogether. The actions scenes were little more than painful to watch, one which has two guys with two guns each shooting at the main character down an empty hallway, none of whom hit anything. The plot was ridiculous to say the least. I am sorry, but there is nothing that i can say about this movie that could possibly sound good. There were several moments that you could tell the director was trying to get across as funny moments but all failed except for one, and even that only got a grunt from my mate and I.

On the whole, the movies feels as though it could be cut in two. The first half is terrible and taking itself seriously, and the backend must've been when the director realised it wasn't working and did his best to turn it into comedy, which was even worse [just wait for the demise of the last "villian"]

I want my money and my time back. Worst film I've personally seen in 2003.
