Awesome movie! Very realistic for what could/will happen one day.
ezxcellent movie based on an excellent book!!
Now I took the time to read the comments about this movie and like one person mentions, this movie is not for everyone. As for the person that said the book of Eli is better, they wouldn't know the difference between a good or bad movie if it hit them in the face. Honestly, this is a great movie, and in my opinion if your not mature and sensitive don't watch the movie.
the film was very dark and you will not crack a smile through the whole movie
as someone mentioned, just like a zombie movie, the only thing missing was the zombies. Lousy ending too.
very powerful and entertainig movie!
Well acted and directed. It has haunting scenery and bleak, simple dialogue.
A beautiful father son relationship at the end of hope. Stays true to the book. Not a lot of laughs though. :-)
I was hypnotised from the moment it started. It was not what I thought I was in for when I sat down to watch but it was fantastic non the less. Really dug deep. Wonder how much therapy the actors needed after shooting. Bleak but provoking
i was surpised at how much i liked this movie. I thought it was well acted and crafted by the director. An excellent movie
This is a love it or hate it type of movie. I thought it was a gritty, thought provoking, look at the desperation of human existence as our planet is dying. It is definitely a depressing, relentless struggle ... but I loved every minute.
Very emotional, well acted movie. Albeit a bit slow at times, the movie was an insprational story about a father's love for hisson.
What a bloody waste of film and talent. Could this movie be any more boring. There was no sense no purpose...it didn't go anywhere or endup with a good ending. It SUCKED the big one. It had nothing to offer. And in the real world this could never happen. sorry to say but everything about this movie was horrible. I'm sorry I wasted my money. But mostly my time....I will never get that back. YUCK....Hated this movie...
I thought this movie was really good. The acting was amazing. Viggo did a very good job.
I love this actor, but for V.M. this movie is such a downer. If you don't like depressing movies that include cannibalism, don't watch it!
At first we thought this was going to be a long boring movie. Our family couldnt take our eyes off it until the end. I would highly recommend watching it.
This movie was BORING. The book of Eli was better. It was very slow and uneventful. I couldn’t wait for it to end. The world was destroyed but to sit through a whole movie where the characters walk about aimlessly, no excitement, no interesting plot it was quite a waste of time. I generously give this movie one star.
no power, no vegetation, no beginning, no end, no pacing, no plot. The only way to have saved this movies was add zombies, at least then I wouldn't have had any expectations of quality film making. As a matter of fact that is how I would describe this film, a zombie movie without the zombies. Pointless.
after seeing this movie we could not forget about it, incredible acting, humanity at its best and worst. we have told everyone we know to see it, the studios should have supported this movie, people need to see it.
terrible, waste of time and money!!
To really appreciate this movie, read the book first. Either way, a very moving movie!
Not like any film i've ever seen befor,and beleave me i've seen a LOT of films! This has got too be viggo at his BEST!!! 2 - thumbs UP!... WAY UP FOR ME!!! Can't wait for the DVD release date!
Just way too depressing
Great Movie. Papa, Papa
this movie was poorly marketed by the studio, it should be seen! and in the theater , this movie with its bleak nomadic nothing like you've ever seen king of movie/feeling and its stayed with me for days as i believe it will for you as well, very powerful and strong, i recommend it emphatically N.D
Viggo Mortensen and the boy that plays his son in the movie Kodi Smit-McPhee were brilliant in their roles. The movie on the other hand was very disappointing. I saw this movie a couple of months back at the Toronto International Film Festival and believe me when i tell you the best part of the movie is when the credits came up at the end. Beware of the trailers and commercials you see of this movie, the story line they pôrtray is very false. Like i said Vigo and Kodi were brilliant but the movie in all was Very Disappointing.
Good not great. Bleakness personified.
A GOOD GUY-BAD GUY MOVIE, BUT NOT LIKE ANY OTHER EVER MADE. A MESSAGE OF INHUMANITY THAT EXIST FOR MANY RIGHT NOW IN SOME AREAS OF THE WORLD.THE END OF THE WORLD AFTERMATH HAS NOT ARRIVED FOR US.. YET.YOU CANNOT HELP BUT BEING DRAWN INTO THE CHARACTERS,THAT ARE SO WELL ACTED.THOUGH SOME QUESTIONS ARE LEFT UNANSWERED, AS IN REAL LIFE, THE REAL QUESTION OF WHAT WE THE AUDIENCE WOULD DO IS FAR MORE CHALLENGING. SEE IT AND YOU DECIDE-GOOD GUY OR BAD GUY?
Excellent movie! This is a very compelling story between father & son and the will to survive. Emotional especially if ur a parent n immerse urself n2 the characters. I noticed several people around me crying... NOT for the crowd who needs CGI and constant over-the-top ACTION to keep them entertained w/o ever developing a story and or characters.
A very good performance by Vigo,but a very depressing film.
This film is for people with attention spans. Not the G.I.Joe crowd. You need a working brain to watch this movie.
The feel good movie of the year!! Ton's of laughs...kidding. If I hadn't read the book I wonder if I would have enjoyed it as much as I did. For fans only.
This movie is excellent. If you have read the book especially it follows it fairly well. Very sad, and emotional. Screw everyone who says it is boring.
Excellent movie! Viggo is amazing!
i'll sum it up - dark, depressing, well acted, nicely shot, depressing, bleak, traumatic, and really depressing. Its Mad Max, without the action and all the emotion, meets Texas Chainsaw massacre, without the graphic violence.
don't hit THE ROAD to see this movie..... talk about a movie that going nowhere.... save your money......
It was a good end of the world movie. It reminded me of a cross between Planet of the Apes meets Damnation Alley and Soilent Green. I found out about this movie from a friend in Toronto that referred me to a site called moviedaters.com in the GTA. I found someone within a few days and we both would recommend this movie and this site to find new friends and movie dates. jjsteel2009
"great film. If you liked No Country for Old Men, you'll like this." I Couldn't stand "Old Country for Old Men"! What a boring senseless movie it was. How would it figure if I Didn't like the above movie? Then if I went to see The Road and liked it then what?? So your idea doesn't make any sense in this regard. I have to give it a rating so if I see it, I'll give it 5 stars if it is Very Good. Considering everything, I think it is will be 5 stars from what I've seen and heard of the comments, plus the story and acting, etc.!
Very well acted, especially by Viggo... But it's very dark too, and not for everybody.
This movie is garbage. I appreciate good stories but this is 119mins way too long...Every scene repeats itself over and over. Please folks save your money!!!
very well acted..but very depressing...and keeps you wondering what the hell happened to the earth in this movie.. Also, couldnt figure out why the wife just left.
great movie! very well done
This was simply incredible. An amzing movie. Anyone who does not agree has no understanding of the deep meaning behind the meotional strength neede by these two individuals. Wonderful movie. Follow the book very well. Loved it.
Follows the book very nicely. If you're looking for a gripping tale of survival and determination, this movie is for you!
great film. If you liked No Country for Old Men, you'll like this.
I don't know how this has 5 stars. If you want to be bored & depressed by all means go see it.
awesome. Why are not more theatres showing this.
