The Last Ride 'A Story of Hank Williams' Blu-ray Review

Ride off into the sunset with the most legendary country artist of all-time when THE LAST RIDE arrived on Blu-ray and DVD June 4 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Featuring an all-star cast including Henry Thomas (E.T.), Jesse James (Jumper), Kaley Cuoco (“The Big Bang Theory”), Fred Dalton Thompson (“Law & Order”) and Stephen Tobolowsky (“Californication”), this powerful film retraces the final days of a true American icon.

Based on the controversial life story of singer-songwriter, Hank Williams, THE LAST RIDE tells the powerful tale of country music’s original bad boy. The man, the myth and the music come together when Williams travels from Alabama to a series of New Year’s shows in West Virginia and Ohio. This remarkable journey leads straight into the heart and soul of the legendary performer...as he takes one last shot at redemption. Featuring all-new versions of Hank Williams’ greatest songs, this emotional tale of hope and truth is one you’ll never forget.



With 11 number one songs throughout his career, Williams’ music continues to touch people’s lives long after his passing 60 years ago. Former President Bill Clinton has said of THE LAST RIDE that it “takes us back to rural America in the 1950s, tells the story simply, and uses the music deftly, both to intensify the drama and to remind us of the timeless genius of Hank Williams.” Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee added “it’s a beautifully crafted and creative vehicle for telling the story of almost every gifted musician or actor who must reconcile the desire within to simply be a great artist and the demands of the public to be an accessible and accommodating celebrity.”

If you are a fan of Hank Williams then I highly recommend taking the time to watch this movie. If you are not a huge fan of older country music or culture, you may still find that something in this movie that you will enjoy. My hubby watched it and he said it was very interesting to learn about the not as well known side of Hank Williams. We let my dad borrow the movie and he really enjoyed it as well. The acting throughout the movie was involving and brought the story of Hank Williams to life. I highly recommend you to watch this if you are a fan of Hank Williams, when it comes to learning about his life, and being entertained, “it don’t get no better than this.”
