There's about as much action as My Dinner With Andre.

Hillcoat certainly provides the requisite seriousness, but what the movie lacks is an underlying sense of innocence, a sense that, however far humanity has sunk, there is at least some chance of rising again.

This is a willfully, skillfully crafted film with insufficient heart to the task it undertakes. It never fully connects us to love amid its ruins.

What was poetic and spare on the page has become monotonous and oppressive on the screen.

The ending rings false; and the overbearingly sentimental music can't compensate for the lack of even harsh lyricism.

It's never clear why the movie needed to be made, unless Hillcoat wanted to show that he could compete with Bela Tarr's 7 1/2 hour Satantango by having just as many endless shots of downtrodden people walking down a dirt road.

Instead of popcorn and soda, the concession stands ought to serve broken twigs and muddy water with this one.

Watching McCarthy's story unfold is a lot like listening to a brooding musician hold down the lowest key on a piano for two unrelenting hours.

Filmed as if dictated by Jehovah but ultimately boasting only a fraction of the artistic value of, say, Terminator: Salvation

... what remains of 'The Road' is an honorable failure, given there was never any real hope of translating McCarthy's style-driven novel into film.

This is London

Like Mad Max on Mogadon, the film is enraptured with its own depressiveness, coming on like the worst New Year hangover you've ever had.

When a movie is bleak and depressing, it had better be damned good. The Road is damned bad.

Tedious, dull and anticlimactic despite decent performances and exquisite cinematography filled with bleak images. It's ultimately an underwhelming experience that lacks emotional resonance.

It's a grind. Each weary, rainy step is agony. Around every corner is more desolation. More destruction. More misery. On it goes until The Road finally hits a dead end.

Anyone looking for either an adventure or an engrossing rumination on life after The End will find it tough to see beyond the film's starkly rendered gloom.

Mortensen and Smit-McPhee may deliver intense, often gut-wrenching performances, but their journey is too mysterious and soaked in one-note misery to keep you rapt.

Except for the physical aspects of this bleak odyssey by a father and son through a post-apocalyptic landscape, this long-delayed production falls dispiritingly short on every front.

"The images are searing, but there's little for Hillcoat to bat around besides endless agony. The Road is glacial and precise, but rarely offers the viewer something to chew on besides utter finality."

While identifying with characters in a bad situation is a movie must, drowning in their deep funk as much as they do, is a narrative no-no.

Zombieland was the same movie with laughs, but if you take away the comedy, what is left? Nothing, on a vast scale.
