The Way definitely needed more powerful scenes and more sophisticated dialogue, but it mostly does pull off its low-key, slower and less dramatic approach at storytelling thanks to a moving story, some beautiful shots, very likable characters and their endearing group dynamic.

Easy-going, sentimental, but not over-played road movie which effectively inverses the traditional father-son story dynamic.

Great movie. Well done. Wonderful soundtrack.

Emilio Estevez has really struck good here! Martin Sheen and his cast of clumsy misfits are excellently cast in this incredible film about loss and strained relationships. The sentiment and struggle was real and not forced, which made it easier for each character to develop into the real human being they were. I loved this film because is exposes our flaws and helps us to reconcile with each struggle we might have, and sometimes a good start is with a pair of hiking boots, a quiet trail, and some good friends. Well done!

I am not really a Martin Sheen fan but he does a good job adding something to a pretty lackluster story that has heart but is too repetitive. The supporting cast isn't bad but the characters they play are just too stereotypical and the attempts at making them endearing falls flat.

Very heartwarming. Emilio Estevez deserves more credit for passion projects like yhis

The Way's biggest sin is the lacking of character development. Besides, the plot is very poorly written and the characters are uninteresting. I expected more... much more!

I thought this was really lovely and unexpected. The joys of deep diving in to your Netflix queue and coming up trumps.

A touching tale that's often a bit cheesy and disjointed but is ultimately enjoyable. The best part is the feeling of actually spending time travelling along the route with them.

Soooooo sloooowwwww. Boring. Dialogue was stupid, not realistic. Martin Sheen's character was extremely unlikable. As an actor, he seemed disengaged from the movie. The supporting cast carried it. A waste of time.

It is clearly made with some good intentions and Martin Sheen's performance is what carries this film, but in the end it is way too long and too painted by the numbers. It's an interesting piece of work. Not terrible, but not outstanding either.

A surprisingly great road trip movie. Strong performances from the entire cast of characters. This is one I know I'll want to revisit again and again along my journey through life.
