A generic espionage/crime thriller; although briskly paced, the plot is far from airtight and demands a deus ex machina to reach its climax.

Genre: Comedy/Thriller
Director: David Lowery

U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-10-05
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence)

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity, Violence, Adult Themes)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Jeremy Ungar

To be effective, "Ride" needs to nursemaid the slow-build tension but director Jeremy Ungar rushes through too many scenes.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Drugs, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama/Thriller

Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Scott Mann
