Adventure, Drama
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind and water. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the warmer south, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there.

A "once in a life" must see. The power of love of a father towards his son moves them in a story that calls for strength, survival, memories, hope and belief that in a dying world, humanity and innocence inside a child means so little and yet so much. We are left to believe, that as humans we mean more than the body we carry. We are what we believe!

Left me feeling totally depressed - really, really great movie, great performances from both leads, the kid is just perfect, just as well as Viggo. If I had seen this one three years ago I'd might feel a bit different, but after having a kid of my own it changes perspectives and makes you connect with things you wouldn't connect being on your own.

[9.2/10] Bleak doesn't cut it. Grim doesn't cut it. Desolate doesn't cut it. *The Road* is a harrowing film. It is about the death of the planet, whether the world that’s left is worth living in, and whether God has abandoned his children. It contains frank discussions and tasteful but More

Heard good things about it and wanted to like it. Starts off OK. Good and bad people exist which obviously they do even in a non post apocalyptic world. I like how people's evil and good adapted for survival. Not much happens though after that. You're basically either a cannibal or you'r More

This was not a good film. I was really disappointed, b/c it seemed to a fairly novel idea. The problem was, the writing was just tremendously awful. First off, why would anyone bother to go to the lengths Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee went to in order to subsist on insects and melted snow, More

**The Road paints a grim and genuine picture of the dangers and greed of a world surviving the collapse of society and hope.**

The Road is a realistic and super depressing depiction of a post-apocalyptic world. Viggo Mortensen’s portrayal of an unyielding father doing whatever he can to keep hi More
