If you like stories about chance and coincidence and fate, then here's one you'd never heard. Boy meets girl. Girl almost kills boy by running a red light at rush hour. Boy is T-boned at over 60 miles an hour.
God, are you alright?
And survives with barely a scratch.

Stretch is a moderately entertaining, but mediocre, film
I liked the film Narc very much, and even though director Joe Carnahan's following movies (Smokin' Aces, The A- Team and The Grey) were far from being at that level, I still found them competent. Carnahan's most recent film is Stretch, a moderately entertaining, but mediocre film. Stretch takes the "crazy night" concept (used in the past by films such as Go and After Hours) and executes it with some style and humor. However, I felt a general lack of energy, and I didn't like some of the performances. I felt Patrick Wilson a bit rigid in his role, and he can never transmit the frenzy he feels with his job and the frustration of having to deal with a parade of picturesque individuals who want to kill, fire or manipulate him. Chris Pine doesn't feel very credible either in his role, and Jessica Alba is bland and monotonous in her character. Fortunately, the rest of the cast makes a decent work, highlighting Ray Liotta and David Hasselhoff, both playing themselves. What is more, I felt Carnahan's direction kinda listless. Nevertheless, I can give a slight recommendation to Stretch despite is mediocrity, mainly because it didn't bore me.
