The Road

Review – Peter Ricci – FlixCritic writer

The movie “The Road” is remarkably good, but yet rather dark in the grim imagery of a post apocalyptic future where America has been devastated. It’s a rather straightforward blunt in your face movie where habitations have been destroyed or abandoned, vegetation is dying, crops have failed, and the infrastructure of civilization has disappeared. It’s a recent memory that even the young boy remembers a time when the world was a healthy place to live and grow up. There is no reason why the world has turned savage and destroyed, maybe global green house affect perhaps, but the point is made and it is powerful, but the film lacks the some basic core of emotional feeling. The dialogue is somewhat restrained and less baroque than usual for author, Cormac McCarthy.
