The pair in this case, however, are a father and son. Kev (Hugo Weaving) and his ten-year-old boy Chook) journey deep into the recesses of the Australian outback, first abandoning their car, then riding by bus, and finally, hitchhiking across the wastelands. Their past is a deeply dysfunctional one, marred by ex-convict Kev's periodic absences from home while serving time, and Chook's only fleetingly successful attempts to understand his conflicted dad. The relationship comes to a head, however, when Kev visits a pub and hears about the murder of a close friend, Max (John Brumpton) . When Kev informs Chook of Max's death, Chook explodes with anger against his dad, forcing father and son into a series of life-changing confrontations. ...Last Ride (2009)

Format: DVD
This is a very bleak film but worth the effort.

Kev, a rough, almost silent man appears to be on the run with his young son Chook. Initially it seems they are heading through South Australia with a view to hitting Adelaide, but as the film develops, this plan seems to disintegrate. Instead, Kev calls in favours with various old mates, kipping on sofas where he can or kipping in the bush where he can't. It is a tour of an empty wilderness with few redeeming features. In this setting, we explore Kev's character - a man of strong but violent principles who probably cares for those who are close to him. But his life has been chaotic, prison stretches interspersed with short periods of free time failing his family.

Much of the film is left without an obvious beginning, and there's no real prospect of an ending. The dialogue is sparse and aggressive. At times it can feel disjointed and confusing. However, there is enough soul in it to sustain the film and it is carried by an astonishing scene at the end when Kev drives off into Lake Eyre - a vast, flat salt lake that is normally dry but has just enough water during filming to create reflections. This scene alone makes the film worth watching.

A Flawed Man and his Son 13 Jun. 2014
By Polo Sr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Riveting, emotional story of a wanted man in the Australian outback, and his difficulty coming to grips with the violent and morally compromised person he is, and the responsibility he has towards a son he can't effectively father given his vagabond lifestyle.

Extremely well portrayed by Hugo Weaving and a young Tom Russell, the film takes advantage of the stark and unique Australian locations to great effect, and the bottom line is a gripping and emotional tale of two souls hangin on to each other by a thread. At times violent and often profane, it's not a Rockwell-esque vignette about a father and son with the requisite happy ending. But it is a memorable look into a fascinating father-son relationship.

Gritty father son drama in the Aussie Outback 30 Jun. 2012
By Maureen Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Well acted and paced father son drama. Outlaw loser dad takes off on the run with young son. The dad loves his son in his rough way, but he is also endangering his life. Teaches son survival skills, but also by negative example, how not to live.

Well Worth Watching 4 Jun. 2013
By Marsh Wren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Although mostly sad and grim, this film is engrossing and ultimately very rewarding. However English subtitles to help with the sometimes mumbled Australian-accented dialogue would have been helpful.
Last Ride 22 Mar. 2013

Great acting, I really want to read the book but can not find it at an affordable price. The movie is gentle, rough and one that you will remember.
A must see movie 19 Dec. 2012
By Holly Prichard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A very moving story about a boy and his father on the run from the law. Both Hugo Weaving and Tom Russel are excellant in this. Trust me, you will cry at the end of this movie.
