Tragic story but fantastic movie. I knew nothing of the life of Hank Williams and had no idea he died so young. Very touching film with excellent acting. Henry Thomas's likeness to Hank Williams is uncanny, although he is much better looking than Hank Williams. Very moving film; I highly recommend even if you aren't a Hank Williams fan. He never sings a single song in the film, he just talks

Los Angeles Times
Dramatically thin, formally uninspired and thematically weak, The Last Ride really goes nowhere. Full Review
Chuck Bowen
Slant Magazine
A typical wax-museum reproduction of the American South in which every detail is Southern in bold all caps, and not a single scene over the course of the film's 102 minutes rings true. Full Review

New York Daily News
Thomas offers particularly fine work, but the underwritten script, which relies too much on sentimentality, gives him little to do. Full Review

The New York Times
This one is for Hank Williams fanatics only, and Mr. Thomas puts a dark and subtle sheen on a disappointingly watery script. Cover versions of Williams's songs - several sung by his daughter, Jett - remind us why he mattered, even as the movie fails to do the same. Full Review

Arizona Republic
Unlike, say, Val Kilmer's Jim Morrison in "The Doors," Thomas makes no attempt to create a convincing facsimile of Hank Williams, which is just as well, since he bears little resemblance to the sinewy singer. Full Review
