The Road A father (Viggo Mortensen) and son make their way across a post-apocalyptic United States in hopes of finding civilization amongst the nomadic cannibal tribes in 2929 Productions' adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's thrilling Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Road. John Hillcoat (The Proposition) directs from a screenplay provided by Joe Penhall. Charlize Theron co-stars in the Dimension Films release. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

A chilling portrayal of a post apocalyptic world. It shows what a person will do to protect who they love. And when such an existence will take away from a person. It was well acted and well produced. A definite A+

Post-Apocalyptic but fun
Posted by: FinalMacGyver from: Shelby, Ohio on
This was an impressive movie when I saw it in theaters. If you are a fan of Post-Apocalyptic movies then you will enjoy this movie. The world ends but humanity remains!!

This is without a doubt, one of the BEST movies I have ever seen. It is a story that has stayed with me after seeing it. It is gripping, well-acted and both frightening and hopeful at the same time.
It is a difficult storyline but upon reflection, it is something to have in your collection.
I did not see the "Extras" so I only rated it as "average" given there was no "n/a" option.

Perfect Adaptation of McCarthy's Masterpiece
Posted by: IAMone19 from: Greeley, CO on
This won't be a long review. The book is a masterpiece and deserves every accolade it garnered. I was enthralled and read it in virtually one sitting. The movie didn't disappoint, either. Viggo Mortensen was perfectly cast and the cinematography was stark, lonely, and depressing, just as it was described in the book: a wasteland populated by dangers of unimaginable scope and magnitude. I was particularly grateful that Chillcoat kept the story and screenplay so close to the book. It was like seeing the book come to life. This kind of movie isn't for everyone, but if you like apocalyptic fiction, there's no story better than this one. It's an epic love story of a father doing anything and everything to protect his son.

I don't think I have ever seen a more depressing movie. The protoganist (Viggo Mortensen) is solely concerned with protecting his son, and doesn't do a thing to help any of the numerous other people he finds in danger. It's also frustrating because the cause of the worldwide disaster is never mentioned. It's been about two years since I watched this movie and I'm still disturbed by its barbarity and fatalistic imagery. I wish I had never watched it.

I wanted to like this

I love Viggo Mortensen. I looked forward to seeing this movie. I like post-apocalyptic movies.
I hated this movie. The father is a spineless, whining martyr. The mother is an uncaring harridan. The boy was good. There were parts that didn't stink but I was completely unable to develop pathos for any character in the film except that of Guy Pierce's family. Had the film been about them, I think I would have liked it.
I don't know if this was bad direction, poor scripting, lousy acting or just a combination of mediocrity but save the two hours of your life and watch 'The Road Warrior' or 'Tank Girl'.

Not one I'd recommend
Posted by: pitman9 from: Dryden, NY on
My biggest regret was that I didn't see Russ3103's review before I bought and watched this movie. It's extremely slow for the most part and depressing as heck.
If you like depressing movies that seem to go on forever, this one will be great for you. Otherwise I'd avoid it.

I will never get those 2 hours back.
Posted by: Russ3103 from: Hollywood,FL on
Unfortunately I cannot give this movie a 0, though I'd like to.
This movie shredded about two hours of my life that I can never reclaim. I don't know why anyone who has seen this movie would even imagine anything good about it. I spent the entire first half waiting for the movie to begin, then I spent the other half waiting for something to actually happen. I was let down on both counts. Do not watch this movie. Save those two hours of your life for something that has meaning and value, neither of which include this movie. I would rather watch Open Water again than to ever have this movie play on my TV, even if I'm not there.
Sorry for my rant.
Synopsis of film. Father and son on road. No food. Sick. The End.
