Stretch (2014) Plot:  A hard-luck limo driver struggling to go straight and pay off a debt to his bookie takes on a job with a crazed passenger whose sought-after ledger implicates some seriously dangerous criminals.

Stretch (2014) is a fast paced action thriller with a reasonable entertainment value and passable production value. Although the story is not fresh and emulates a tried formula, the characterization and acting makes it quite watchable.

Stretch is based on a night's work of a Stretch, a limo driver who is under a huge debt and aspires to pay it off through a prospective tip by an unstable customer. As the night goes on Stretch finds himself getting involved in a deep and twisted scenario involving crime and law enforcement agencies.

The cast does a good job in entertaining the audience and lifting the movie from ordinary to pleasurable. Chris Pine plays a good part and is at times magnificent as the crazed, yet dangerous customer. Ed Helms brings a mysterious dark element to the whole storytelling as a dead limo driver who is an imaginary friend to Stretch. Jessica Alba has a cameo that does add value to the project. Patrick Wilson as Stretch fits the part as he looks like your average loser. He has also acted well. Guest appearances by David Hasslehof and Ray Liotta definitely bring some added value and some needed humor to the mix and all in all the cast out does the script and lifts the whole movie.

On the whole Stretch is entertaining and is a good flick if you want to enjoy a movie without thinking too much.

Rating: 3/5
