A movie review by McBrolloks
The Road (2009)
This is a post-apocalyptic thriller. Since I was very young I was fascinated by the subject. I always wondered what the wold will be like after a bunch of maniacs destroyed it all. Over the decades there has been many such movies made. I have to say, this one is one of my new favorites.
The movie does not go into details of how and why civilization as we know it came to an end, and it does not dwell on the first 10 years after it all started either. Instead, it is about a father and his son trying to find a safe place to live where there are other people who are civilized. All the survivors left over are mostly cannibals now, hunting other humans for food to survive. There are not many people left alive, and most food and supplies has already been scavenged. Everything on the planet is dead or dying.
I never give the plot away in my reviews, so I am not going to spoil this one for you. I was on the edge of my seat during this movie. It was one of the best post-apocalyptic movies yet made. I highly recommend it if you want to watch a real thriller.
