The Way almost immediately loses its way and stays lost.
You must have missed a turn off or as Martin Sheen's character starts his buen camino...you also went in the wrong direction. Exceptional story that balances the issues of letting go and "letting go". El buen camino has been walked for over 1,000 years and Estevez chronicles why each journey is it's own destination. I'm a 52 year old recently divorce father of four (18,19,21,22)...and I cried more than once...not sure what you were expecting but no less than an 87 in my book

..... as have you my friend. If being a film critic is your chosen path in life, you either applied for the job in error, or are the victim of a very unfunny practical joke. This is a beautifully acted, written, and crafted movie that appeals to a wide range of people who have experienced many of the things the film depicts.
I found it be a very moving, and educational experience, and far from losing it's way, as you suggest, possibly showed many people their way in helping them cope with a loss, or their search for fulfillment.
An excellent movie that deserves more intelligent comment than yours, and thankfully gets it from a vast majority of Rotten Tomatoes readers.
