Surprisingly, in contrast to the majority of book-to-movie adaptions, John Hillcoat’s rendition of the bleak novel was quite well done. The film itself was incredibly atmospheric, and very much captured the mood originally presented in the book. Also, the acting was excellent, and Kodi Smitt-McPhee in particular did an outstanding job as the young boy. The entirety of the movie was just so incredibly visceral and emotionally real. There hadn’t been much overacting or underacting, which was pleasant considering it could have easily fallen into a trap of becoming overly dramatic. In fact, there were some scenes that elicited an even more intense emotional response than the novel initially had. The film also did a magnificent job of utilizing flashbacks in a logical manner that gave context to the plot and loads of character depth. However, as productive as the extended time spent in the man’s flashbacks was, it would have probably also been wise to elaborate more on the situations in the present. For example, there were a few scenes in which I understood, given that I had read the novel prior to viewing the film, but probably would have been confused by if I had not, namely the brief moment in the cellar. On another note, the efforts put into costuming and makeup were absolutely phenomenal and really captured the grittiness of their world and the gravity of their situation. Also, the pacing seemed highly appropriate. Yes, it was a bit faster paced than the novel but given the medium, the quicker pace was an asset rather than a hindrance. This is mainly because it is difficult to maintain a viewer’s attention for an extended length of time without any true shifts of events, and what they chose to include sacrificed none of the deep character development present in McCarthy’s novel. All in all, the movie was harrowing, yet brilliant.

This was a well made movie. The cinematography, the acting, the story, etc. Sad movie though.
