Hey, it’s nice to see one of these films shot in Atlanta that isn’t afraid to actually take place in and showcase the city as itself. Other than that, this look at Ride Along is a pretty straightforward teaser, your response to which wholly depends on how much you enjoy Kevin Hart’s whole “I’m weak and short and shitty” shtick pit against Ice Cube’s “I’m super hard and tough and badass” thing in a sort of comedic Training Day.
Holy shit I hope this plays out exactly like Training Day.
This will be crazy profitable, just FYI, so don’t be surprised when it comes out of nowhere to be a big hit next January. Think I’m joking? They’re already working on a sequel, with director Tim Story.
