The Road (2009)

2009_the_road_018-1A 2009 post-apocalyptic movie based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Cormac McCarthy.

I’d always wanted to watch this film, because of its post-apocalyptic setting which is usually done rather well.

Viggo Mortensen shines in this film as the Man who must protect his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) from from danger in post-apocalyptic America. I didn’t expect this movie to move me emotionally as much as it did. After the movie ended, I felt very bereft without truly knowing what I’d lost.

A superb movie which is worth a watch if you haven’t seen it yet. It’s really awe-inspiring and unsettling at the same time.

MY RATING: **** / *****
