The Road

This film had a limited release on Nov 25 playing at 111 theaters. So, chances are you haven’t seen it yet. Fortunately, we here at TruthTrain.com were able to see the film prior to its release. Uneasy feelings emerged in many who read the novel by Cormack McCarthy when Charlize Theron was featured prominently in the trailers. I can assure you that this is merely a studio ploy to get viewers. The film focuses on the travels of Viggo Mortensen (Man) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Boy) on The Road, with memories of a life now passed. Both parts are well cast and acted; they deserve the coming accolades. The cinematography displays the bleak tone of the novel continually throughout, which makes for a heavy, but enriched viewing. This film is one of best of the year.

Oh, and Viggo sports an impressive beard. Shout out to Whiskerino.

All Aboard!

  1. Thanks for the review. This movie looks boss, ya hear?! It looks like an intense walk down apocalyptic blvd.
    Oh, and don’t be hatin’ on C.T. The girl is fly. Even in her grubby Road clothes.
