Critic Reviews of "The Road"Time OutJanuary 08, 2010
Hillcoat's movie is a resounding triumph. Stunning landscape photography sets the melancholy mood, and Nick Cave's wrenching score reinforces it. But it is the performances that ultimately hold the film together.Los Angeles TimesDecember 02, 2009
Hillcoat certainly provides the requisite seriousness, but what the movie lacks is an underlying sense of innocence, a sense that, however far humanity has sunk, there is at least some chance of rising again.At the MoviesNovember 30, 2009
It hits a few tinny, sentimental notes. Still, I admire the craft and conviction of this film, and I was impressed enough by the look and the performances to recommend that you see it.I.E. WeeklyNovember 30, 2009
What's unnerving is that the end of the world was shot on location. Apparently, if you want to see doom, just go to New Orleans or Pittsburgh.Rolling StoneNovember 29, 2009
In this haunting portrait of America as no country for old men or young, Hillcoat -- through the artistry of Mortensen and Smit-McPhee -- carries the fire of our shared humanity and lets it burn bright and true.Toronto StarNovember 29, 2009
How could anything so bleak be so promising?Film Comment MagazineSeptember 24, 2014
A remarkable, haunting picture worth multiple viewings.Maclean's MagazineMarch 11, 2014
The Road is one of the year's strongest dramas. But it's no picnic, to say the least.TheShiznit.co.ukSeptember 28, 2012
The Road is a highly emotional, involving, palm-sweatingly tense movie that will scar you for life if you let it. Exhausting to watch but oddly exhilirating to experience, it's a film you'll watch once but will never forget.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJune 16, 2011
Unpleasant post-apocalyptic drama.QuickflixOctober 21, 2010
Hillcoat does his best, and for the most part, he succeeds. The horrifically desolate landscape and the drab greys and cobalt blues of the scarred sky pervade every shot.
