THE LAST RIDE blu-ray review

* I received the below mentioned product solely for review purposes.  The below opinions are completely honest and completely my own.

Based on the controversial life story of singer-songwriter, Hank Williams, THE LAST RIDE tells the powerful tale of country music's original bad boy. The man, the myth and the music come together when Williams travels from Alabama to a series of New Years shows in West Virginia and Ohio. This remarkable journey leads straight into the heart and soul of the legendary performer...as he takes one last shot at redemption. Featuring all-new versions of Hank Williams' greatest songs, this emotional tale of hope and truth is one you'll never forget.


Lately my fiancee and I have hardly had time to spend together much less watch a movie.  SO when we realized we had a couple of hours one night, we decided to watch The Last Ride.  Now I have to admit I did not know that the original Hank Williams was a "Bad Boy" like the movie shows.  I honestly had him pegged for one of those "Good Ol' Country Boys".  Boy was I surprised when I started watching the movie!

The movie basically features the final few days of Hank's life.  First I had hoped Hank would sing, but he didn't in the entire movie.  Besides that fact, I really liked the movie.  The chemistry between Hank and his newly appointed driver, Silas , was the highlight of the movie especially since most was in the car.  There were several scenes that made me laugh out loud!  

If you are a fan of Hank Williams or know someone who is, then you should definitely grab a copy of this movie.  The blu-ray is available where blu-rays are sold at nationwide retailers and also online retailers like Amazon.  Right now on Amazon, the blu-ray is $17.99 ( which is a great price for a blu-ray).  SO be sure to grab a copy today and enjoy a final ride with Ol' Hank!
