The Road Movie Review (2013)
The Good: This movie pulls deep into the audiences' emotional tanks. Just when you think life was hard it gets even harder, and in some cases crazier. (If you saw that Basement scene you'll know EXACTLY what I'm talking about) It really captivates the loving bond that a father and son share, or any parent for that matter. It also takes a radical and interesting look at the lengths a parent will go just to protect their child. There are some really intense scenes and the best part of this movie is the number of moral decisions that have to be made, just in order to survive. You'll question yourself most of the time asking "Would I...or could I even make THAT choice?"
The Bad: This is a bit long and drawn out for a drama filled movie. It's very slow paced which may lose some average movie goers with short attention spans. (Yours truly being partially guilty) The kid's character was SOOO ANNOYING! One would think that if someone grew up in those post apocalyptic times that you'd be used to a lot, but this kid acts like he just woke up from a long nap or something. smh
The Reason: This is one of those movies that you may literally pray never becomes a reality. It's got some high's and low's which make you feel like you're on an emotional roller coaster. This movie may not be for everyone, but it's one movie you'll probably not forget after watching it. I think this movie will be hit or miss for many. I hear the book was excellent though.
The Rating: 6.5/10
