THE ROVER

Re­lease Date: 15/08

Charged - - MOVIES -

We love us a post apoc­a­lypse and this looks like a very spe­cial en­try into the sub-genre. An­i­mal King­dom direc­tor David Mi­chod un­spools a self-penned story set in the Aus­tralian out­back 10 years af­ter the world was dev­as­tated by an un­ex­plained event.

You might be think­ing Mad Max and you could be half right – the main story deals with what hap­pens when a gang of thugs steal Guy Pearce’s car. Bad idea. He takes one of the bad­dies (a crew cut sport­ing Robert Pat­tin­son) and lights out for re­venge. Grim and gritty ac­tion is the order of the day, and early re­views have been ter­rific.
