"Thank God for cheetohs"
Viggo Mortensen stars in this post apocolyptic tale of a father and son trying to survive in a world that caught fire. All is dead except for a few. The ones that remain are mainly cannibals. No names are given, it is simply man and boy who travel the United States in search of food, shelter, and hope. The trailer for this movie does not do it justice and is somewhat misleading which is why I feel a lot of people did not like this movie. Bottom line it is a story of father and son and at what means will you go to protect the ones you love. It is dark, farely quiet, and eerie. Director John Hillcoat graciously adapts Cormac McCarthy's beautiful novel to film with a few minor changes which is typical from a book to film adaptation. It was good to see Robert Duvall appear as the old man they meet on their travels in such a short but mezmerizing performance. This movie is not for children and needs to be viewed with and open mind and heart. It celebrates human life and lets you know whats worth living for and whats worth dying for. It is a tale for which you have never seen and one you wont forget. 4/5 -tom
