A good version of The Book of Eli, sad and powerfull. A great story, and very believeable. Finally an "end of the world" movie that is actually believable.

I was really happy with this buy. One of the most inspirational, and compelling movies I've seen in a long time. I agree with Iambcrusher, I was expecting a nonsensical movie, not this. I was so happy with everything in the movie, Viggo can pull off any character, its amazing.

The Hollywood Reporter
Director John Hillcoat has performed an admirable job of bringing Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel to the screen as an intact and haunting tale, even at the cost of sacrificing color, big scenes and standard Hollywood imagery of post-apocalyptic America. Full Review

The New York Times
Engrossing and at times impressive, a pretty good movie that is disappointing to the extent that it could have been great. Is this the way the world ends? With polite applause? Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
The latest in a year filled with Armageddon movies such as "Terminator Salvation" and "2012," and it won't be the last, but it's the most chilling so far. Full Review

Washington Post
The Road possesses undeniable sweep and a grim kind of grandeur, but it ultimately plays like a zombie movie with literary pretensions. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
While the film is not as resonant as the novel, it is an honorable adaptation, capturing the essence of the bond between father and son. Full Review
