Today marks the four years since the release of Ride Along starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart.
Ride Along is an comedy action film that follows Ben Barber (Kevin Hart), a security guard who only wants to prove that he is the right man for his soon-to-be wife Angela (Tika Sumpter) who is the younger sister of Atlanta detective James (Ice Cube). In order to do that, James takes Ben on a 24-hour ride along as he patrols the streets of Atlanta.
Within those 24-hours, Ben has a comical hard time keeping up with the harmless Crazy Cody (Gary Owen) who won’t stop smearing food all over his body in a grocery store to the very dangerous Omar (Laurence Fishburne), boss of Serbian smugglers who is considered a ghost because he’s never been seen by anyone.
Although the movie was funny on some parts, the way scenes play out using Ben’s game intuition is a real stretch. I’m always all in for an action comedy as long as it’s believable and makes sense but there is no way that playing a video game will make you a better fighter or recognize the sound of a specific gun. I want you all to know that I did laugh a lot at this movie.
Rating: 3.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
