We've all watched those sorts of films where by the end of it, we're either here nor there and we can't make up our minds. After seeing The Road, I was a little perplexed. There's a fair few post-apocalyptic movies on rotation at the cinemas of late but this one is much more bleak in the way it is delivered. Starring Viggo Mortensen and newcomer Kodi Smitt-McPhee, our two heros are deprived of their names and the audience is only given a vague explaination of how the world became to be the decaying wasteland they must walk through, each day a new battle to survive, find food and avoid capture of a gang of cannibals. Occasionally the viewer sees various glimpses into the past to flesh out character stories and give us direction in how long the world has been in this state. I'd really like to hear anyones thoughts on this one. I won't lie, I'm a little unsettled.
