Stretch (2014) Review!!

Stretch-BannerSynopsis – A hard-luck limo driver struggling to go straight and pay off a debt to his bookie takes on a job with a crazed passenger whose sought-after ledger implicates some seriously dangerous criminals.

My Take – Their is always a mystery surrounding around films dumped by studios, like is that bad? Well, usually they are, like really bad!! But luckily this feature from director Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Smokin Aces) is not an example of that case. Instead this film a hard-boiled, muscular, dark & a hilarious 90 minute thrill ride!!

stretch-movieIt is the day in a life of a down-on-his-luck ex gambler limo driver played by (the very under rated & charming) Patrick Wilson who has a ride of his life (pun intended!). Rounding out the supporting cast are the very likeable Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, Ed Helms, and Brooklyn Decker with awesome cameos from Norman Reedus, Ray Liotta and David Hasselhoff. This film is so delicious that every second is enjoyable, filled with intense events that makes sure the viewer is happy and satisfied, Joe Carnahan knows what he’s doing & it may at times seem he is still in the awesome Smokin Aces (2006) hangover & Stretch may just be the much deserved sequel (oh please ignore the 2010 direct to DVD sequel).

strewchStretch is a very entertaining movie & at times down right crazy to watch with great performances from Patrick Wilson, Chris Pine and Ed Helms. It’s funny, edgy and a wonderful experience!!
