Exciting movie.
Well performance by Pattinson and Pearce. Story could be deeper, its like the small brother of the movie "the road". Music is sometimes out of place.

Despite fairly solid lead performances, great atmospherics and an edgy soundtrack, there's not much else here that hasn't already been done before (and better) in movies like "The Road Warrior," "The Road," "Thelma & Louise" and (dare I sayDespite fairly solid lead performances, great atmospherics and an edgy soundtrack, there's not much else here that hasn't already been done before (and better) in movies like "The Road Warrior," "The Road," "Thelma & Louise" and (dare I say it) "Dude, Where's My Car?" Hyping style doesn't make a movie any better; it's still just style with a good publicist. Expand

The rover storyline wasn't horrible but wasn't wonderful. However, I would watch it over and over just to see Pattinson's and Pearce's performance. Wonderful Actors!!!

Guy Pearce plays a dour, dirty traveler of few words and violent action. When three men steal his car, he chases after them with a "halfwit," interestingly played by Robert Pattison. Everything about this film is gritty and grim: the people, the look, even the attitude. Director David Michôd has crafted it with an assured hand that makes it compelling, even with the tedious pacing and minimal explanations. He loves to hold long closeups of Pattinson as he ruminates.

i think with most movies today, so much happens in the first half that the second half loses focus. this film is no exception, not to mention i didnt like pattinsons character at all, he does questionable things that arent really explained.i think with most movies today, so much happens in the first half that the second half loses focus. this film is no exception, not to mention i didnt like pattinsons character at all, he does questionable things that arent really explained. the score and cinematography are nice.

This movie is really well-made, but it seems like a really long stretch when you get to the end and find out the driving purpose behind the main character's (Guy Pierce) drive to get his car back.....

At the end of it, I felt a bit cheated by the story - but I did think that the production had very good strengths. The performances were also very, very good. Expand
