Richard Knight
Windy City Times

Although the film is sensationally photographed and artfully directed and scored, it's ultimately strictly dullsville, man.

Despite the obvious enthusiasm of the screenwriter, the director, and the actors for Kerouac's novel, they get it wrong. Probably nobody can get it right, since the power is in the words, not the story.

Salles can't recreate the feeling of finding oneself in Kerouac's prose

It's hard to imagine how such an exciting book became such a boring movie.

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

A booze-soaked, drug-riddled, sex-filled escapade with no real point about young people casting off whatever yokes chain them and seeing what's out there. It captures the pure exhilaration of freedom for its own sake.

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

If our On the Road is a barely coherent tightrope act - a fizzy word drunk stand-up speed-rapped by an aspiring poet posing as a dumb saint prole - then it's tough to take this pretty version, populated by Gap models in retro Americana fashions.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

The movie version of "On the Road" won't have the impact on a person that the book ever did. But it does go some way to explaining why the book did.

Eric Melin

At just over two hours, its challenging to stay invested in the movie and its choppy, rambling storyline. As a filmic experience, however, it serves as an interesting companion piece to the similarly challenging 'The Master.'

Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Not a film for the masses....the story is laced with sex, drugs and nudity, but it is a capable character study of a group of young friends who could be part of any generation.

A pretty disappointment.

Film Threat

Considering the central characters would become the dominant figures of the Beat movement, it's unbelievable how pedestrian their antics prove, not to mention how through-the-roof the picture's corn quotient is. Could the soundtrack have more bongo music?

Creative Loafing

Salles approaches Kerouac's raw, restless and spontaneous work in such a staid and conservative manner that the movie might as well be a lesser Merchant-Ivory production from the team's late-'90s period of decline.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The filmmakers are intelligent and gifted, but they fail to provide a satisfying answer to the question facing anyone who might want to make a movie version of 'On the Road,' namely: Why bother?

Salt Lake Tribune

Even Stewart, exuding more passion than in all five Twilight movies, registers more fully than the preening leads.

Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Jack Kerouac's Beat Generation bible "On the Road" was experimental, experiential and ephemeral in a way Walter Salles' film never captures or portrays.

Kansas City Star

If the movie weren't so visually eloquent at evoking post-war America, it might prove unbearable.

East Bay Express

Salles aims to do for Jack Kerouac what he did for Che Guevara, i.e., to make him and his pals rock stars.

Movie Nation

What Salles gets just right is the sense of speed - of lives lived too fast, of the blacktop passing before their windshield in a blur.

Groucho Reviews

This pretty period-pictorial companion piece to the novel fatally misses out on the brain-firing raw buzz that Kerouac felt and passed on to his readers...

Nina Garin
San Diego Union-Tribune

Hedlund is too pretty and not quite as maniacally charming as Dean. Riley's Kerouac is even more apprehensive than the one in the novel, and that raspy voice he uses is distracting.
