The Road – Movie Review

The movie The Road deals with a father and son who try to survive the nightmare ordeals of a post apocalyptic world.  They search for food, water, warmth and safety while trying to avoid the canabilistic  thugs who roam the highways and backroads searching for their next meal.  This is not a zombie movie and while the apocalyptic event is never shown, the movie focus on trying to survive the apocalypse in what remains of a bleak and desolate world.

I enjoyed this movie because of the realistic feel it presented and the differences between those who have hope and those who don’t, between those who are the hunter and those people they hunt and between those who cling to life and those who give up and long for death.  The movie gives one the eerie feeling of what life could be like after the apocalypse.

  1. It is a really good movie and very faithful to the book on which it’s based.

    I agree deathstalker2. I found it to be pretty much in keeping with what I imagine a post apocalyptic world to be like.
