Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 09/04/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n emotionally intense, riveting and overwhelmingly powerful look at a man and his young son traveling a long road while trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world."
Rolling Stone - 09/17/2009
"[D]irector John Hiillcoat has found exactly the right actor in Mortensen to convey abiding faith among the ruins."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/02/2009
"[S]pookily convincing...Viggo Mortensen, as a man wandering the wasteland with his young son, has a tremulous woundedness."
Rolling Stone - 11/26/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Hillcoat -- through the artistry of Mortensen and Smit-McPhee -- carries the fire of our shared humanity and lets it burn bright and true."
USA Today - 11/27/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "At the heart of this bleak story are two astounding performances. Viggo Mortensen is superb....[and Smit-McPhee's] sweet voice and innocence are ideally suited to the role."
Wall Street Journal - 11/27/2009
"The theme of unswerving love is strong. The spectacle of a blasted planed holds a fateful attraction."
A.V. Club - 11/24/2009
"[D]irector John Hillcoat and cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe supply some arresting images of an earth that's literally dying, shrouded in ash and littered with the artifacts of an unthinkable human tragedy."
New York Times - 11/27/2009
"The most arresting aspect of THE ROAD is just how fully the filmmakers have realized this bleak, blighted landscape of a modern society reduced to savagery."
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/27/2009
3 .5 stars out of 4 -- "The external events of the novel have been boldly solved, and this is an awesome production."
Uncut - 01/11/2010
5 stars out of 5 -- "The performances by Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee are acutely credible, with the boy avoiding all the pitfalls of child actors."
Empire - 01/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "[The] tender moments between father and son ache with emotion, and resonate as strongly as any of Hillcoat's de-saturated visions of despair and terror."
Total Film - 05/24/2010
"John Hillcoat's film showcases intense performances from its leads as they struggle to preserve their humanity..."
