The Rover, another reason why I love Robert Pattinson. This movie was very intriguing with its slow character and plot development, but high and intense action right from the beginning.
Eric (Guy Pearce) is sitting in his car looking despondent when he gets out to get a drink. While he is drinking, a truck loses control and the three men inside decide to steal Pearce's car because they can't get the truck out.
Pearce sees them taking his car, gets in the truck and manages to chase them down. While this is happening you're trying to figure out why Pearce is so obsessed with this car.
Rey, played by Pattinson, is the brother of the man who steals Pearce's car. He also leaves his brother to die, which is why Pearce saves him, so he can use him to get to the brother. The entire time Pearce barely speaks so you are trying to figure out what his problem is and his intense obsession with the car.
The ending scene finally explains the entire reason Pearce chased the men for his car and it also clarifies his reasons for shooting or not shooting some of the people getting in the way of his mission.
The acting was superb and Pearce and Pattinson definitely made the film. The entire time you're itching to know what the deal is with the car and when you find out you appreciate Pearce's character even more.
