I was excited to watch The Road after reading the book a few years ago. I didn't think I enjoyed the book. It's minimalist style, no punctuation, nearly no conversation, really...but by the end it had a tight grip on me without me even realizing it. And I thought it would be an easy movie to pull off.
I was wrong. A 100 minute movie just didn't have enough time to get me to care about these people. Viggio's performance was great. He's one of the few actors that can relay meaning with just a look, no words. In fact, everyone was good in this. It just didn't have anywhere near the emotional impact that the book did.
