I have to admit that putting Pattinson in your movie as a mentally handicapped kid was a big risk, but it paid out. Everything about the movie actually is letting out this aroma of not caring what people are going to say about it.
What some people may not have liked about the movie is that it doesn't really have a moral. It doesn't tell you what to think or even what to feel. It just presents a morally corrupt world, filled with people without hope, just going through the motions. It is the viewer's choice what to get from the movie. Personally, I am glad I watched it and I would recommend it to anyone.
Another thing that you must take into account is that this is a slow paced atmospheric movie that last for almost two hours. In that time you get to see nothing but Australian dirt and the relationship between some people slowly, very slowly, changing. Also, there are no good and bad guys in this. When I said morally corrupt I meant there is almost nothing left of morality to talk about.
Bottom line: I would have to say that it is a combination between The Road and The Way of the Gun, set in Mad Max territory. Really well acted movie and well constructed and executed all around. I highly recommend it. Just take into account that it is slow paced, violent and lasts for two hours. I don't think girls would get it, either. Oh boy!! I just finished seeing this, and I am blown away. This is a fantastic movie and I loved everything about it. I must admit I am surprised, that the total rating is at only 6,4 for the time being. The performances are incredible!! I expected a solid performance from Pearce (which he delivered) and happily surprised that also Pattison delivered a stunning and engaging performance. This movie comes highly recommended. Always commanding attention at the film
