Story


"The Rover" is set in a world ten years following the collapse of the western economic system, where Australia's mineral resources have drawn the desperados and dangerous to its shores. With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (Pearce), who travels the desolate towns and roads of the Australian outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind the wounded Rey (Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that matters to him.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a dark, dreary and dull "Mad Max in Neutral" from director David Michod ("Animal Kingdom") that tries to pass off its blunt narrative and repetitiveness as some sort of style..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
“..The Rover, a bleak and pointless exercise in pretentious existentialism by Australian director-writer-producer David Michod..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..Michod's sophomore feature isn't exactly something we've never seen before, but it has a desolate beauty all its own..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
