Rideshare

 (107)4.31 h 42 min201813+
Hitch, the most popular Rideshare app in Los Angeles, has created safe rides for millions. At least, that's what they want you to think. It was only a matter of time before the story went public. The story of that one night. That one, horrific night. This twisted dark comedy about a creepy killer's wicked night in Hollywood will make you think twice before hitching your next ride.

Hardly a horror, more of a dark comedy
Verified purchase
Not really a horror and not really suspenseful... here's some spoiler-free notes I made while watching.

Alright... the first four minutes of this movie are terrible. The acting is awful, the characters are detestable. I'm questioning if it's worth the remaining hour and forty minutes.

Ten minutes in and the riders are all so annoying I'm actually on the driver's side...

Thirty-seven minutes in and the storyline and acting haven't improved at all. I get it. People suck.

Fifty-nine minutes in and this almost works as a dark comedy. Its definitely far more hilarious than scary or suspenseful. I'll also add that the script isn't too shabby. Whoever wrote the script has a knack for dialogue.

The acting never entirely improved, but once I started looking at it as a comedy, it was far more enjoyable. I don't know if the ending was worth the length of this film. The dialogue was actually the strongest aspect of the movie. Not many writers can pull off a movie of this length that is comprised almost entirely of dialogue.

As far as a learning experience, I've learned to never accept food or drink from rideshare drivers. I am now also uncomfortable with food delivery services. I also learned to not be an a-hole of a passenger.

Overall, this movie was fine if viewed as a dark comedy. Beyond that, it doesn't have much to offer.

A slasher I could relate to.

Oscar Wilde once said; "Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." Only when a man believes he is safe from the repercussions of his actions, will reveal his true nature. "Rideshare" follows the exploits of an Uber driver named Jason. After witnessing the side of Los Angeles from constant bombardment of fake personalities, Jason grows hostile towards those around him and develops a dark, nihilistic view of humanity as a whole. This new outlook soon leads him down the path of murder and violence. Jason converses with each passengers, while secretly judging whether or not that person deserves to live. The passenger continues talking, completely oblivious of the weight his words hold regarding whether they will reach their expected destination or become another victim of the crazed driver. Just as the masked man speaks freely, Jason's passengers talk to him without reservation and undeterred by typical social conventions. By the end of the drive, the passengers true nature is put on display for Jason pass judgement on. The vapid and distasteful personalities that make up his passengers, serve as a constant reminder of everything Jason despises about the world around him. it's difficult not to sympathize with his actions to some extent, while simultaneously condemning them as morally reprehensible.

Terrible
Verified purchase
The acting was awful, especially the killer. Monotone throughout. The fact that the passengers were made to be awful makes me think that the director WANTED sympathy for the driver and none for the passengers. That is just terrible. Storyline was stupid. No woman who's alone in a car with a strange man is going to threaten to report him. Very poorly made because after the first killing they would find him. He didn't bother to wipe his fingerprints from anything. If he really got not from "Hitch" to pick up a rider then the company would know everything. Just very poor written. The ONLY decent line was near the end when his brother's wife(?) said "I didn't know you had tatoos". Even then you wonder just how stupid is SHE? Just all around very poorly done.

Using an actual tragedy as basis without credit???
Verified purchase
I watched the entire movie and found it okay. It had an interesting enough plot but not amazing. Upon going to the reviews I saw a comment that said this was based on the 2016 Kalamazoo, Michigan killings by Uber driver Jason Dalton. As the other commenter pointed out the details are WAY too similar. The killers are both named Jason??? I don't ever post reviews but if this movie was truly based on the killings (despite claiming to be fictional) and it certainly appears to be so, it should be taken down. No one should be making a profit from this. I've seen plenty of movies base their plots on real events RESPECTFULLY and WITH PERMISSION. This movie does neither. Very disgusting and I regret watching it.

Solid For a Prime No-Budget Movie
Verified purchase
Uh, it was a micro-budget Prime movie. In that context, it's worth a watch and is definitely above average compared to its peers.

But overall, there were constant plot holes that made it difficult to engage in the storyline and the ending was completely predictable.

As someone from Kalamazoo, Michigan where the ACTUAL Uber killing spree happened....
Verified purchase
As someone from Kalamazoo, Michigan where the ACTUAL Uber driver's killing spree happened this movie just mocks way too much of the reality that my community actually went through. It's tasteless, and the fact that the main character's name was the same as the actual killer's name just topped it off for me. I shut it off. It's sick and until you live it and see the pain, you'll never understand.

can't tell
Verified purchase
can't tell if it is supposed to be funny or scary? for an independent film though... the acting is good, the dialogue is good, the premise is good and the music and cinematography are good. i think it kind of drags on a little too much and by the end of it the "killer" is enjoying a little too much "soapbox" with the voice over narration. could've been packaged tighter somehow.

Macabre for Hire!
Verified purchase
Macabre, indeed. This flick starts off slow, but has just enough 'wait-for-it' substance to make you, well, wait-for-it!
I found the victims to be annoying. Indirectly, I suppose, this is a nod to the main character. It's not really a spoiler of me saying this, but this hired cab driver has a dead-end job; picks up dead beats; makes some grave decisions; he's dead tired exhausted after his shift; all his passengers are dying to get home.
RIP⚰
