Marco Antonio Aguirre,
Twenty-something Richard travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a strange map. Rumours state that it leads to a solitary beach paradise, a tropical bliss - excited and intrigued, he sets out to find it.
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind and water. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the warmer south, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing: just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless cannibalistic bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a rusting shopping cart of scavenged food--and each other. Written by
Stay away from The Road at all costs. Boring, pretentious, plot less mishmash of pasted together bleak and desolate and "the horror, the horror" pastiches.
There's no thought given to what survival would entail in a movie that revolves around survival or how a world would end up in the it's presented as in the film, or how people who've survived at least ten years in this world would act, etcetera...
The whole movie is an exercise in cluelessness, stupidity, and utter jaw-dropping and yet still boringly mind-numbing stupidity. Fans of the book praise this film for it's faithfulness to it's source material which is a very good indication that the book should be avoided as well.
