After a major global economic collapse, the Australian outback has become a lawless wasteland. The Rover follows one man’s journey as he traverses this dying landscape to recover his car which has been stolen. With the brother of one of the thieves held as hostage, he must avoid military patrols, bandits and other criminals if he is ever to see his vehicle again.
Ahh The Rover. It sounds like it could be such an interesting film. Reading that synopsis it conjures up images of a ‘Mad Max’ like tale, people fighting for survival, car chases, general chaos, maybe an explosion or two. No, that isn’t what you are going to get so crush that dream right now.
