Road, The (2009)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Road, The (2009) A man (Viggo Mortensen of LORD OF THE RINGS) and his young son travel across a decimated United States, walking towards the Coast and to the South to get away from the cold. Everything is dead, even the animals, so they must find food in the form of canned goods. They also have to avoid the groups of marauders that have become cannibals. The only thing they have for protection is a pistol with two bullets and the father intends to use these on himself and his son if things get too bad or if they're captured by the people eaters. But in one such encounter he uses up one of the bullets, though it allows them to get away. They also have to be careful about falling trees, especially with the frequent earthquakes. Since the trees are all dead and their roots rotted, they fall over like dominos anytime the ground shakes. There are also numerous fires. Every so often there are flashbacks to scenes with the man's wife (Charlize Theron) in happier times, usually a dream, which makes him worry. His health is deteriorating and he's begun to cough up blood. Now, he has to prepare his son for fending for himself. And it doesn't help that he begins seeing all other survivors as enemies.

The scenes of a ravaged world are impressive and it's a great use of computer effects. Although the gore is to a minimum it's effective, such as the human gutpile and the scene with the starving people kept in the cellar for food. It's also a very depressing movie, so be warned. This is one of the most realistic movies about people trying to survive the end of the word I've ever seen.
