I trulu LOVED this movie!!

I have watched (or simply played) this movie, The Way, more than 20 times, and it hasn't worn thin yet! The UNSURPASSABLE GENIUS in ALL aspects of the making of this movie; the photography--from epic scenery to subtle expressions of the actors, the timing of dialogue, music, sound-before-scene, and momentum of the Camino trek, has me so addicted that I cannot go more than a few days

it a great movie, should be academy award material, however anything that has any degree of Christian value, or high moral standard is usually not something Hollywood or the academy of motion pictures looks for or appreciates. Recommend without reservations. Good for the Estevez Family for such a great effort.

It works better as an idyllic travelogue through northern Spain than as a familial drama; despite the real-life relationship between filmmaker and star. Full Review

The making of The Way must have been a nice moment for father and son, but why must the rest of us suffer? Full Review
Angie Errigo
Gentle, likable and profoundly touching, it makes you want to dig out the hiking boots and make the same journey. Full Review

There's a contemplative loveliness to The Way, an affecting personal project both for Emilio Estevez, who wrote, directed, and plays a small role, and for his father, Martin Sheen. Full Review
Nick Schager
Village Voice
As a director, Estevez exhibits a bland visual sense, but he does manage to convey some of his scenic locations' multifaceted textures. Mostly, though, his dramatically inert, spiritually generic The Way seems like it was far more fun to shoot than it is to endure. Full Review
