Yep.. on 'The Road'..again
18 October 2019 | by bdickusSee all my reviews

It's been noted many times here that it's a replication of the great film 'The Road'. One of my faves. Even the string score was similar. With out spoilers..it had that 'mens needs' repopulate the planet with woman thing that reminded my of '28 Days Later'. Because of the duplication, i've chopped a few points off my rating..but also the very beginning is a 10 minute long boring as hell monologue/limited dialogue between father/daughter that sould have been cut. I can't stand these sloooow conversational things in the middle of movies...at the end of 'No Country For Old Men' was good..but that's THAT great film and had much to do with the Cormac McCarthy's story. I actually turned 'Light...' off.. I normally don't do that in research ahead of the time of what I plan to view..but gave it another try as there was nothing else in my viewing reprtoire. Plus a good number of plot holes.. But it was written and Directed and Acted by Casey Affleck so a star for that.
