Film Review - Ride (2024)


Jake Allyn has scripted a few movies, with his last, 2021’s “No Man’s Land,” exploring the cowboy way in America. Allyn also acts in the features, giving himself juicy parts, often portraying tormented souls dealing with trouble of their own making. For “Ride,” Allyn returns to acting and screenplay duties (co-writing with Josh Plasse), and he makes his directorial debut with the endeavor, which once again explores the desperation of Texan men trying to fight their way out of emotional horror and financial ruin. It’s another showy part for Allyn, but he wisely packs the picture with capable supporting talent, with these performances carrying the film through a general sluggishness it only periodically breaks free from. “Ride” is an editorial pass away from greatness, but the effort does hit a few gut-rot moments of regret worth sticking around for, and its central idea of generational guilt occasionally reaches its potential.
