Must watch

This is an amazing movie. Although it can be a bit ~slow in the sense that there is no dialogue at times but it all goes with the theme of the film. With that said it won't be everyone's cup of tea, but def worth a watch. Although this is more of an intense film it def has its funny moments. Both Pearce and Pattinson are great in this film. Pierce is amazing as always and we see a very different side of Pattinson. His character which could have easily been a joke comes across as a naive, slow kid. You just want to hug him, give him a bath and give him a good meal. Anyways without giving away too much this movie shows you that even in the desperate of times there is always some sort of humanity left in the world. Absolutely loved the ending and this movie will stay with you long after you leave that theater seat. Must watch if you're a fan of Michod, Pearce or Pattinson. If you're not they will surely surprise you in this film.

The Rover

I loved the book The Road and was impressed with its translation to screen. Although I've never read the original story of The Rover (which I now will go back and remedy) I found the film extremely well crafted and a more realistic and multi-dimensional character examination of the main character. Where The Road was chronicling someone who was clearly a good person in a bad situation, The Rover shows a person morally compromised in a bad situation and trying to make sense of the world he now lives in and the life he has been living. I highly recommend this movie with one caveat. It is bleak. It is bleaker than The Road which is a feat considering it doesn't include cannibalism. And the nature of the protagonist makes it difficult to root for a hero. At least you won't be rewarded for it. But it is an excellent examination of a character and Guy Pearce is brilliant in it.

The Rover goes nowhere fast

Very disappointed in the movie. The movie was given 3.5 stars in our local paper. I had a hard time giving it 2 times. I spent the first 90% of the movie trying to figure out where it was going. The only suspense was the end, as well as waiting for the movie to end. BIG WASTE of my money.

Superb acting, very slow

I was thoroughly impressed with the acting in this film, but the story was so slow. I don't think the story itself was good enough to justify the time I spent in the theater, though Guy and Rob's performances were worth seeing
