This review is from: Let It Ride [DVD] (DVD)
Rarely in movies do you get a film which is perfect in every detail, where every line, every actor, every shot is exactly right, well this movie is one of those rare occasions where everything gels.
The story of an underdog betting man who falls upon a lucky streak is one to which we can all identify, the every man trying to get through who suddenly gets a break. The film is populated with whacky characters, from the heroes best friend to the large teller at the track (brilliantly portrayed by British actor Robbie Coltrane), each is performed brilliantly.
This is a feel good movie of the highest order, one which moves smoothly from scene to scene and is over before you are ready for it to end leaving you wanting more.
