User Reviews

Forget it
18 July 1999 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

Anthony Quinn is ready and able, but he has nothing to do in THE ROVER, an alternately boring and confusing adaptation of the novel. You won't care what happens to him or anyone else in the movie. Movie has a beautiful score by Ennio Morricone, but it seems to have been made for a totally different movie, with the music frequently inappropriate for the scenes it plays in
