O que se diz lá fora sobre THE ROAD, de John Hillcoat:
«THE ROAD evokes the images and the characters of Cormac McCarthy's novel. It is powerful, but for me lacks the same core of emotional feeling. I'm not sure this is any fault of the filmmakers.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«The most arresting aspect of THE ROAD is just how fully the filmmakers have realized this bleak, blighted landscape of a modern society reduced to savagery.»
A.O. Scott, New York Times.
«Except for the physical aspects of this bleak odyssey by a father and son through a post-apocalyptic landscape, this long-delayed production falls dispiritingly short on every front.»
Todd McCarthy, Variety.
«THE ROAD, for all its vivid desolation, remains a curiously unmoving experience.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«Director John Hillcoat has performed an admirable job of bringing Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel to the screen as an intact and haunting tale, even at the cost of sacrificing color, big scenes and standard Hollywood imagery.»
Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter.
