What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Debashine Thangevelo Pattison inspires in dark road trip movie
Rozanne Els Brekdeel van moontlike wêreld
Todd McCarthy Parched and on edge
C. Fuchs While 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 Fueled by engaging performances from Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, the tension-filled The Rover overcomes its narrative faults through sheer watchability.
