Hit & Run

(R) ★☆☆☆☆

Co-director and writer Dax Shepard of Punked and Parenthood turns in this weak attempt at throw back, automobile-driven time-killers such as The Cannonball Run. It fails miserably. Charlie (Shepard) is a reformed robbery getaway driver living in rural California with his girlfriend, Annie (Kristen Bell). They hit the road to get Annie to LA for a job, but they’re pursued by Annie’s ex and Charlie’s former cohorts. It’s more of the over-the-top comedic violence that’s awful. Even the car chases are stale.

Channy Leaneagh’s ethereal voice permeated the air as the Minneapolis quartet delivered dark, electronic-pop and a sultry, hypnotic vibe. The short-haired, sylphlike front woman danced gracefully and applied Auto-Tune effects as she crooned, creating angelic layered vocals. Chris Bierden provided high- and low-pitched supporting vocals as his buoyant, driving bass lines cruised along with drummers Ben Ivascu and Drew Christopherson’s simultaneous breakdowns and crescendos.
