A wild Ride
9 October 2014 | by rapidcerebSee all my reviews

I was not expecting an overly good movie, but what I got in turn was an rollicking thrill ride. The Movie "Stretch" Takes place over the course of one night, and is about a man whom is a Limo Driver that owes six grand by the end of the night.

At times this movie reminded be a bit of "eyes wide shut" and "Hanna," with similar colouring and locations to the movie "cosmopolis," but with a much more light hearted and humorous tone. I did not view the credits beforehand, but was surprised with several cameos, and quite a few recognizable faces throughout the movie.

Some parts are a little mediocre, but as a whole the movie is a fun ride, and offers some good entertainment while contemplating on things like fate and taking action.

It was beginning to feel like Chris Pine was becoming a bit type cast, but in this movie he effectively breaks those bonds, portraying a wild, unpredictable man with a sense of mystery and insanity.

At first appearance, it looks like it will be another run of the gun, 'wild night' movie, but instead "Stretch" offers some truly unique aspects, with plenty of creative and funny scenes throughout.

Definitely a good movie to watch if your looking for some fun entertainment that doesn't take itself too seriously. Probably one of the directors best movies, if not the best. If you like wild adventure movies with comedy and action, then don't miss out on this one!
