Hit and Run is an action-comedy film released in 2012, directed by David Palmer and Dax Shepard, who also starred in the movie alongside Kristen Bell and Bradley Cooper. The movie revolves around the protagonist, Charlie Bronson (Dax Shepard), who is living under the witness protection program in tiny Milton, California. He is in a happy relationship with his girlfriend, Annie (Kristen Bell), who knows nothing about his past life as a bank robber.

Charlie's peaceful life is turned upside down when Annie is offered a job in Los Angeles and he decides to accompany her on the trip. He is afraid to reveal his true identity to her and also the fact that the people he testified against might be out for revenge. However, their journey becomes a bumpy ride when Charlie's former associates learn about his whereabouts and decide to pursue him, leading to a series of high-speed car chases and shootouts.

One of the former associates, Alex Dmitri (Bradley Cooper), is an eccentric gangster with a vendetta against Charlie. Alex chases Charlie and Annie in a sleek, black muscle car, hurling insults and curses their way. As the chase continues, it is revealed that Charlie is not who he seems to be, and his past is catching up with him.

As the movie progresses, the audience is taken on a wild ride with numerous twists and turns. The plot is full of action and humor, with some heartfelt moments sprinkled in between. The audience can feel a sense of impending danger as the characters get more and more involved in the dangerous world of criminal gangs.

The soundtrack of Hit and Run is also a highlight of the movie. With classic rock music punctuating the high-octane car chases, the soundtrack complements the action-packed sequences perfectly. The cinematography, too, deserves praise for capturing the essence of the movie's genre - a mix of action and comedy.

The portrayal of the characters in the movie is also commendable, especially the dynamic between Charlie and Annie. The chemistry between the two is palpable, and their relationship keeps the audience invested in their fate. Bradley Cooper, in his role as Alex, is another standout character. He brings a certain craziness to the character, which makes him an entertaining villain to watch.

In terms of negatives, some may feel that the plot is predictable and formulaic. However, this is easily forgivable given the fun and entertaining ride the movie takes the audience on. Some may also find the humor a little too silly, but overall, the movie strikes a balance between action and comedy.

In conclusion, Hit and Run is a fun and fast-paced action-comedy that will keep the audience engaged from start to finish. With a great cast, memorable soundtrack, and exciting car chases, the movie delivers what it promises - an enjoyable ride filled with action, humor, and heart.

Hit and Run is a 2012 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.1 and a MetaScore of 50.
