Movie Review: Ride Along

ridealongWe had been out today to watch Ride Along at the VOX Cinemas at the MIrdif CIty Centre.

The Plot in short:

Ben Barber, a fast-talking, jumpy security guard, joins his potential brother-in-law James Payton, an Atlanta Police Department cop/detective, on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta in order to prove himself worthy of marrying Angela, James’s sister. The patrol begins to turn into a real case as James finds clues that he thinks will lead to potential closure of the 3 year case he has been working against the mysterious criminal known only as “Omar”.

Quote of the Movie: Ben: [breaks up a fight] Hey! You’re white, you’re white! You don’t fight!

Going into this movie I did not know what to really expect. Kevin Hart is not funny as most stand up comedians but rather it’s his silliness and his charisma that makes him funny. He does not tell a lot of jokes but his mannerisms and the way he talks during his parts are what is funny. I fully enjoyed this movie. It was much funnier than I thought it would be. Ice Cube does it again with his production company making a movie that is already in talks to get a sequel. No matter what Ice Cube touches it seems like it’s worth watching. I could not stop laughing at how stupid Kevin harts character was. Ice Cube and Kevin hart had very good chemistry together. You should go see this movie because it is worth it if you want some good laughs.

I was sadly a bit disappointment of the VOX Cinema in Mirdif. Compared to the one in Deira CIty Center it lacks a lot of charm and we will most probably not return to watch a movie there unless it is the only cinema showing that movie and i believe that i have to see it.
