Children Of The Road
9 August 2019 | by Wu_Tang_ClamSee all my reviews

This movie is very much like 'The Road' and 'Children Of Men' smooshed together, just not as good. It's hard for me to get through anything with Casey 'MarbleMouth' Affleck, but I gave it a shot anyway as I love post-apocalyptic movies. He should give mumble rap a try. Anyway, the movie has been done before so I wasn't expecting much and that's what I got. Another slow burner, just a little below average fare.
