The movie is good with Jake Johnson as the leading character that showed us it is possible to make a feature film in the struggling period of COVID-19 but not that much good as we were expecting. The film opens with Leif who heard a bad news that his mother has passed away. This not only shocked him but also breaks his heart as he abandoned her when he turned 12 to join a cult. Now, he has to do some last rituals to take over her mother’s property at Yosemite but he has to perform a list of tasks that has been recorded in a video cassette.

Ride the Eagle is actually a nice film that shows us reality with humor and there are some places where it looks pointless when cast members are trying hard to make the scene work. The ending can be more pleasing and informative but anyhow the filming was done under the pandemic. So, you can derive some fun there because due to pandemic, it was not possible to test each crew member for the same frame.

Ride The Eagle 2021 movie is now streaming in US cinemas since 30 July and available to rent on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, YouTube TV, and Vudu.
