Evoking many of the common themes of other Nicholas Sparks movies, The Longest Ride is a boring movie with few redeeming qualities. The two main characters, Luke and Sophia, have little chemistry and together they make a dull couple. At least Luke, played by Scott Eastwood, is an attractive cowboy that is fun to watch, otherwise this film would be unbearable. The only interesting plot point is the parallel story that is shown from the 1940s and 1950s. If you love Nicholas Sparks books and movies, then this movie fits in with his others, but it is less successful then many.
