Review of the Road

 The road is a movie about a father and son as they try to survive a nuclear winter and all the death and decay it brings. Most movies of this type usually follow how the lead characters survive the actual event but this movie shows what is happening five years after and the collapse of mankind and how food has become scarce and the chief fear is cannibalism. This is a very depressing movie with very few and far between light moments, which fits the story and mood of the film. The movie is very long as well clocking in at nearly two hours. I honestly don't know if I'd recommend it, Viggo Mortensen delivers a great performance but I don't think it's enough to recommend the movie on. If you like apocalyptic movies then give it a whirl, but it may not be worth your time if you don't enjoy that genre.
