The Road - The Road review by CP Customer

Sorry I did not enjoy this at all. Found it boring, dark, depressing and really difficult to understand. Couldn't really see the point.

Ultimate road movie. - The Road review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
31/05/2011

Unexpectedly moving in parts. The bleak atmosphere created by the the filming really pervades everything right up to the end.Each step in their journey is dictated by dire circumstances until you begin to think that the end is a foregone conclusion.

The son, in my opinion, has the better part to play,and there are some heart rending scenes which were played so authentically that I defy anyone not to have a tear to wipe away.

Equally some really evil situations some of which are suggested rather than in your face ,will give everyone pause for thought.Recommended.

A good Idea - The Road review by D C

Spoiler Alert
14/08/2010

A good idea not executed that well from the preview it looked interesting but alas it was quite poor and as for the kid i just wanted to slap him .....................

Viggo was doing his best but his shoulders are not wide enough to carry this pre seasonal bird........ i am also a fan of Guy Pearce but his cameo role was "oops" ya missed it and although Rober Duval did have a few lines again just wadding i'm afraid........... oh well onwards and upwards............
