Drama, Suspense/Thriller
Monotonous allegorical drama drops us into the gray aftermath of an earthquake/fire Big Disaster, with a numbed-out father (Viggo Mortensen) and his mewling young son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) traversing the ruined countryside looking for food and tangling with other survivors. Says here Cormac McCarthy won a Pulitzer for the novel this is based on. Why? There’s nothing in the film version — directed by John Hillcoat from Joe Penhall’s adaptation of the novel — that hasn’t already been done better by Samuel Beckett and George Romero, respectively. Another question: Is there a clause in Mortensen’s contract that says he has to appear naked in every film? Instead of popcorn and soda, the concession stands ought to serve broken twigs and muddy water with this one. Costarring Robert Duvall, Guy Pearce, and Charlize Theron (153 min.).
