Fear the man with nothing left to lose.

When a gang of thieves steal his car they leave behind a wounded man. The hero forces the left-behind man to help track the gang, as the stolen car is the most important thing in his life, and he will go to any lengths to get it back.

C. Fuchs quote iconWhile the film doesn't really deliver anything new to the dystopian sub-genre of action-dramas, it works, for the most part, in being a contemporary western of sorts, with an Eastwood style character driving the story through his singular desire. Beautifully shot and moody in its slow burn approach.

Tomatometer quote iconFueled by engaging performances from Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, the tension-filled The Rover overcomes its narrative faults through sheer watchability.
