The Road - Blu ray - £5.00 @ Amazon

From Cormac McCarthy, the writer of the Oscar-winning No Country For Old Men and the director of The Proposition comes the film adaption of one of the most celebrated and beloved books of the 21st Century, The Road.

It is a gripping post-apocalyptic thriller, a heart-rending love story between father and son and a lesson to us all on how humanity can overcome the most horrific challenges to our survival. BAFTA nominated for its cinematography, The Road is a stunning, life-enhancing and utterly rewarding experience that deserves to be seen.

At my cousin's school, they play this film to the kids in detention as punishment. True story. Detention only lasts fifteen minutes, but with this on the big screen, that time just drags, and drags, and drags. I dread to think what watching the film in full must be like.

Pictures tell a thousand words, and the imagery throughout the film is compelling. If you don't like it then go watch Die Hard 4.0 or Transformers!

never seen it but has reasonable reviews on imdb:

Brilliant film, touching, lifting and engrossing yet very dark and depressing at the same time. Its not about special fx, its not about action, its not about clever dialogue. If you expect that you aren't watching for it what its meant to be.

I managed 10 mins as the airline movie, before I fell asleep..

I guess the film watchers are divided between those who expect to be told a story, where things happen occassionally and those who think they inhabit a higher plane and can watch two dull hours of people mumbling at each other (eg Brideshead Revisited) and because its 'deep'. They can sneer at films with some movement or plot in them.

Great film.
Granted, maybe not for everyone, but I thought it was excellent. Acting in it was top notch and I spent much of the film with a tear in my eye.

Indeed - as a dad it had me in bits all the way through, thinking exactly what i'd do, how much he'd lost but how much he had to live for in his son and despite all the darkness, there is still hope at the end. I'm not sneering at other special fx driven films by any means, I enjoy them too.

I think its a little sad however to poke fun at other people simply because they have a different view on a film other than you.

How can you say that when you only watched 10 minutes of the film?

One of the most moving and powerful films I've ever seen. It stayed with me for weeks. Its also very hard to watch.

You are a Leeds United fan - surely you're used to watching around two hours of dullness every week or so? ;)

to the poster who thinks if you watch and enjoy films like die hard 4 and transformers then you're dumb how sad you must be to just spend your days looking down at people..I actually enjoy transformers/die hard/rocky etc and i actually enjoyed this but I do not think its a great film its a very good film but not a great one in my opinion and before you start i enjoy coen bros-foreign subtitled films-studio ghibli- because im one of those people who can enjoy all types of films.

rofl at this rubbish film absolute waste of time, I havent read it but the book is meant to be good.

Fantastic piece of filmmaking, imo.

I enjoyed this, very dark and quite moving in parts, but then again i knew what to expect. SWMBO, on the other hand, hated it.

Not to everyone's enjoyment but a good watch all the same.

Watch Disney then, Justin Bieber 3D, spice world... plenty of movies out there for you.

A lot of people totally miss the point of this movie. Very sad and i agree with comments that its hard to watch but to dismiss it as rubbish suggests you didn't get it. Some people dont like to think, or they dont like their cozy world view challenged.

Good rating on IMDB, watch it if you have brain.

Good price but the film is so depressing anyone could kill themselves over it.

If you know your disaster movies, this one's as grim as Testament. And, like Testament, you get much more out of it on second viewing. Those here who damn this movie really need to pick their moment & re-visit it.

Great deal.

worst date movie everrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Probably the best film I saw last year but there is nothing that comes close to being as bleak as this. The ending divided a lot of people and without spoiling it from what I saw there is not even a little bit of hope in all the movie.
It's fantastic but I don't know if I can put myself though that agian.

Great deal though!
#31
Well I really enjoyed it . Any movie that makes you feel the pain and anguish of the characters is great in my view. So many movies now have little or no feeling . That said it's not for everyone otherwise we would all be boring

Along with 'Happiness'.

Brilliant Film. Terribly depressing view of a possible future. The book is also brilliant. Images and thoughts from both haunted me for months. It left me feeling very hopeless and empty - chilling stuff. Not everyone's cup of tea. Sticking to cartoons from now on :)
Hot for me.

Looked great but as I've said before, I've never seen a film where I've wanted to see the main characters die more than in this one.

Big disappointment. Boring film with a REALLY annoying whiny kid.


>>Good rating on IMDB, watch it if you have brain.

I've got a chemistry PhD and I thought it was bland. I think this is a Marmite film. Magnolia which divides a lot of people and many think is pretentious and boring is one of my favourite films. If you get something out of it then good for you.
