"Whatever you think is over for me was over a long time ago," Eric (by blackbeanie)
Just like the mud and the dust on the characters in the film, the excellent The Rover gets under the skin and remains there, long after the screen went black.The story takes place in the Australian outback in the near future after a collapse. A bitter loner sees his car stolen by a gang and tries to get it back at all cost with the help of the wounded, simple brother of a gang member, left behind after a disastrous robbery.Slow and intense The Rover sucks you into the desert, you can almost feel the heat and the flies in your face. Few words are used, more is said by gunshots. Here are no <more>
action heroes who at the end clean up the mess, restore the order and peace and let you leave theater with the feeling that you were nicely entertained. The people in The Rover are desperate to such extent that they've almost become indifferent towards life. They try to survive, period.The bizarre relationship between the angry loner Eric and the naive, dependent Rey is wonderfully brought on screen. Both Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson deliver brilliant performances. Guy embodies perfectly the bitter,rude, inner wounded Eric with his body language and the intense gaze . Robert disappears into Rey, a damaged rather innocent soul who IMO has been taught to blindly obey and not to think for himself, in a way that will blow people away. The tics and blinks belong to Rey, you see them disappear when he feels more at ease, reappear in situations of stress. The supporting actors are amazing as well.Although the film is dark, the mood is not cold IMO. Under the surface of alienation and cruelty there's a palpable emotional layer of vulnerability and fear. Michôd created a world frighteningly realistic and raw, a world we, civilized people, in fact don't want to face. With his second movie David shows again how incredibly talented he is. I was eagerly anticipating The Rover and it met all my expectations. The performances alone is pure enjoyment together with the beautiful landscapes and the amazing music score. Some scenes are quite funny like Rey trying to do his best to be a good partner, or when he's singing.There's also a lot to think about after watching The Rover. What collapse can cause such situation? How far are civilized people willing to go when there's nothing left to loose? Is Rey mentally disabled or is he the product of a very unfavorable education?And why did I think about Animal Kingdom after The Rover had finished? See the movie and you'll know. Sorry for mistakes, English isn't my native language.
Loved Everything About This Movie (by jenperkins123)
As soon as I saw how slowly this movie moved in the beginning, I knew I was going to like it. It's a serious film that doesn't care about having popular appeal.The writing, directing, and cinematography are all great, but the acting by Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson is flawless. They do a tremendous job, together, of showing what causes each subtle change in their relationship that leads to a much larger shift in their feelings about each other.I have to admit I am the mom of a special needs kid, which may have made me really focus on the great job Robert Pattinson did of portraying <more>
Rey. The way he showed Rey's desire to be liked by someone who didn't want a friendship with him brought tears to my eyes. And he was so real when he showed Eric Guy Pearce and the audience that Rey was much more capable than he seemed. I keep thinking about his speech problem, and that David Michod the writer and director and Robert Pattinson were so accurate when they initially allowed us to view him as more disabled than he was because he couldn't express his thoughts. In an interview, Robert Pattinson pointed out that Rey couldn't do anything without someone telling him to, meaning that Rey couldn't function in a practical sense without another person. I think he is so close to the character he created that he doesn't see how complex he made him. The feeling I had was that Rey could function in a practical sense alone, but emotionally, he couldn't function without companionship. And that's a big theme in the movie.
Grim, bleak and bloody Fantastic. (by kit-ramshaw)
A visually stunning and surreal film which left me perplexed and amazed. Guy Pierce is a marvel, who knew anyone could do so much with a script that is about ten words long, 'Under' acting at its best.I never really thought much of Robert Pattinson up until now but he is also surprisingly excellent in his risky supporting role. Very original, very Australian and definitely not a film for the masses, it's certainly open to interpretation. Shockingly violent,dark,gritty, confusing and awkward. But it's the best thing I've seen in years. If you are bored with the ten a penny <more>
'Blockbusters' that Hollywood churns out by the dozen then I would thoroughly recommend this thought provoking and refreshingly different film. Ten out of ten.
A truly remarkable and wonderful piece of cinema (by lacqueredmouse)
I'll admit I don't watch a lot of Australian cinema. I'll also admit that I didn't really care a whole lot for Michôd's previous film Animal Kingdom—certainly not as much as the rest of the world seemed to. So it was with some amount of skepticism that I went to see The Rover. But I am really, truly glad that I did.This is an astonishingly good film, built around a wonderfully nuanced and rich, but extremely sparsely specified post-apocalyptic Australian outback setting. We follow Eric Guy Pearce , a taciturn but brutal loner, who goes on some kind of personal rampage <more>
after his car is stolen on a remote road. Along the way, he finds Rey Robert Pattinson , who he forces to assist him.The world-building in this film is astonishingly good. Michôd creates a very bleak environment for his very bleak characters, and hints at the disaster that left the world in this way—people only accept US currency, for example, but the reasons are left tantalisingly absent. The dusky red cinematography of the outback creates a beautiful backdrop for the sense of desolation.Moreover, the performances throughout are superb. Pearce is dangerous but distant, creating a character who seems to have lost the same vestige of humanity as has the society in which he now lives. But I was even more blown away by Robert Pattinson's co-dependent Reynolds, whose violent actions belie his heart-rending naïveté and fragility—one scene towards the end of the film where Rey and Eric seem to open up to each other a little more around a campfire is truly affecting. I'm really pleased to see Pattinson taking on these sort of roles—he's a truly great actor, and I'm so pleased that the Twilight franchise didn't ruin him for the rest of us.Overall, this film was a truly remarkable and wonderful piece of cinema. Even though I doubted Michôd after Animal Kingdom, this film assures me that I will continue seeing his films going forward. This was an absolute highlight for me, and I hope more broadly marks a resurgence for Australian cinema on the world stage.
"The Rover" is one of those productions that remind me of everything I love about movies.The director is a master of his craft, providing us a very captivating story with a slow narrative. The visual composition impressed me a lot, along with the great atmospheric soundtrack.Guy Pearce plays the lead character so well. He deserves to win all awards that he will be nominated for. But the overall acting is top- notch, with Robert Pattinson giving a very good performance, totally immersing himself into his character.While "The Rover" may not be everyone's taste, I believe <more>
anyone who enjoyed "The Road" or "No Country For Old Men" will like it. And for me, this is certainly up there with those two films.
Apocalyptic Aussie Drama in the vein of 'The Road' (by nick-sultana)
I will admit that The Rover is not the kind of film that will be admired by mainstream audiences, but those who like to have their films to be deep, gritty, tense and yet meaningful will find this an incredible Australian drama to rank alongside not only Animal Kingdom, but America's The Road and No Country for Old Men.The story takes place in the Australian outback around South Australia in its hot and blistering atmosphere in the near future after a collapse. A bitter, silent and loner Eric Guy Pearce sees his car stolen by a gang and tries to get it back at all cost which has value <more>
to him. Asking various civilians who are fighting to survive in this world, Eric finds a wounded and yet simple brother of a gang member named Rey who was left behind after a disastrous robbery putting both Eric and Rey in a intense trip.What I really enjoyed about The Rover is the fact that the director David Michôd Animal Kingdom chooses to tell a story that appears to be so realistic that it could happen, I felt that the Economic Crisis would have been a major backdrop to the story's setting. Character development and emotion is truly present in this film and both of the leading actors deliver that to excellence. The use of music too is raw in some scenes but when music is played it's not the average orchestra score, it consists the use of sound and deep tones. Lastly as well what makes the film truly beautiful despite the subject matter is the cinematography, the out-lands of South Australia are a sight to behold and the camera shots give a detailed look of the collapsing characters and their environment.Summarise, The Rover is indeed a beautiful but dark Drama that will be only be seen by those interested in the concept and I hope that the film will go on to win some awards for the efforts of its cast, amazing direction and quality.
What a bleak future this film portrays.Felt like an apocalyptic Western meets old school Road Warrior. Filmed in the Australian desert, I think they could have financed this film from loose change at starring actors Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson's houses.Without a doubt the best performance from Robert Pattinson I've seen. Granted, I've not seen too many Pattinson films but he does a really good job of playing the half wit brother of one of the dudes jacked Guy's car.Mysterious drifter shows up at the filthiest, dingiest outback pub in Australia just for a glass of water. <more>
Three shot up dudes in a truck crash outside the pub, steal his car and he will stop and nothing, nothing to get it back.It's a wonderfully dreary world in which this film is set. Everyone is so dirty. They should get an Oscar for make up when all the actors did was not shower for what looks about three months.Lots of long shots, tension filled chords supply the majority of the soundtrack.I really dug it. Most folks are gonna hate it. Very gritty. Very dirty. Very violent. Very non-Hollywood.It's a nice piece of cinema. And there's a midget.
The reviews for this weren't exactly bad, or even mixed. But it did seem to get a lot of negative ones, and a lot of neutral, unpassionate ones. To my surprise, this is a fine film. Sure, not all that original, but the directing is really strong, as is the acting, Robert Pattinson, in particular, really shines and the best I've ever seen him be. Who knew he had this sort of performance in him, I certainly didn't, and it makes me interested in what he can accomplish in the future. Guy Pearce was strong too, with a pretty subdued, but very intense, character to play. The rest of the <more>
supporting players give some nice work too. Overall, I recommend this.
Guy Pearce and the guy from Twilight on the prowl in outback Australia (by mistercsays1)
Given the reception his debut feature Animal Kingdom garnered upon release in 2010, there was always going to be much speculation, anticipation and expectation surrounding whatever Australian filmmaker David Michod did next. Opting to forego opportunities in America to complete his second film on home soil, Michod's follow-up project is somewhat removed from Animal Kingdom but still packs a punch. Mired in the barren nothingness of the remote Australian outback "10 years after the collapse", The Rover is essentially a pursuit narrative set in a lawless world of crime, violence <more>
and desolation. It is never made clear what the collapse is exactly, but it is obvious that the world's economy has turned to crap. The titular Rover is Eric Guy Pearce , a man who is plagued by the sins of his past and does not take too kindly to his car being stolen. In a nutshell, this is a movie about a man who just wants to get his car back. Of course, in this most hostile of environments there are myriad obstacles along the way that ensure such a simple objective becomes a much more complicated mission.Pearce's Eric is a loner who emerges from a dusty, decrepit bar in a two-bit outpost somewhere in central Australia to find his car has been jacked by a trio of crims – Henry Scoot McNairy , Caleb Tawanda Manyomo and Archie David Field . With Henry's injured brother Rey Robert Pattinson in tow, Eric sets out to track the thieves. There is violence aplenty as Eric and Rey fight for their own survival in a world where even those responsible for law enforcement are motivated by money rather than any desire to see justice done. Eric is single-minded in his desire to find his car and deal with those who took it from him and anybody who gets in his way pays the ultimate price. Both Pearce and Pattinson are equally impressive in their roles, the former with a dispassionate view on almost everybody he meets and the latter all tics and incoherent mumbling. It is the changing nature of their relationship and their shared resolve – Rey was abandoned by Henry and left for dead – that drives the narrative as they are forced to rely on each other in order to reach their objective.It is actually not hard to imagine this world Michod has created as a future reality. With most of the world's economies having collapsed, desperate characters from around the globe have landed in Australia seeking opportunities in the mining industry, which continues to operate. However, with the desperation of the populace leading to violence at every turn, trains carting iron ore to the city are manned by armed guards. American dollars are the preferred currency and nobody can be trusted in a world in which survival is the daily objective. With telegraph poles serving as crucifixes, it is almost as though Australia has gone full circle; returning to the primal savagery of more than 100 years ago as depicted in John Hillcoat's The Proposition which also featured Pearce . Argentinian cinematographer Natasha Braier has captured the isolation of central Australia in all its gory glory, presenting an outback much more menacing than that presented in the likes of Wolf Creek. The ramshackle towns are populated by folks who seem utterly debased by what has transpired and are desperately eking out an existence by any means possible, with any outsider viewed with suspicion, if not derision.As good as so much of The Rover is, the fundamental failing of the film lies with the ending. It is at this point that we find out why Eric is so desperate to get his car back and I found myself asking "what the?". In fact, it is the idea that Eric wants the car back purely as a matter of principle that makes his relentless pursuit so interesting. When we are presented with the motivation for his actions, it seems designed purely to manipulate us into accepting Eric's behaviour as justifiable and only serves to undermine everything that has got us to this point. Ultimately though, with solid supporting performances from McNairy, newcomer Manyomo and the always reliable Field, along with the likes of Anthony Hayes and Susan Prior, there is still plenty to recommend here in what is yet another example of quality Australian filmmaking and, despite the flawed final moments, The Rover is very much worth watching.
