    Call it a vanity project or bargain basement movie mythos, but no hard-boiled biker picture ever looked or sounded like Road to Paloma.

    The film’s loose naturalism and strong acting — Chris Browning, as a liaison between the F.B.I. and the reservation, is especially enjoyable — are slyly seductive.

    Momoa creates an involving if relaxed pace, one whose moody rhythms are infused with a kind of soulful spirituality.

    Before the plot butts in, Road To Paloma works reasonably well as a moody travelogue that keeps finding new ways to show off its dingy bona fides.

    This film is numbingly dull.

    Momoa does capture some scenes of genuine warmth and beauty that suggest he has the potential to develop a filmmaker’s eye for visual poetry.

    Straining mightily for a mythic quality and reaching a predictably melancholic, violent conclusion, Road to Paloma mainly comes across as a vanity project star vehicle.

    The one and only Captain Beefcake of Game of Thrones, Kahl Drogo, plays a native on the run for the law. In this road movie he's riding his bike in a beautifully filmed desert landscape with his emotional unstable buddy who joined him for no apparent reason. That's freedom, i suppose. Meanwhile, he does something spiritual with smoke, helps the innocent but above all: he does look bad ass on a motorbike.
    Be prepared for a long nap in this slow paced movie.
