Release: Nov. 25th, 2009
Runtime: 1 hour, 51 minutes
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind and water. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the warmer south, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there.

Kodi Smit-McPhee plays opposite of Mortensen and the connection between the two rivals that of real life father and son relationships, thanks to Smit-McPhees acting and the chemistry between him and Mortensen.

While The Road Warrior has the most iconic production design for a post apocalyptic world, this movies design is probably the most accurate.

I guess I just found it interesting or something, but I can't even think of a time throughout the film that I felt especially interested, and none of it really felt new or original after watching The Walking Dead.
