  • Lifeless characters, dull film.

  • One ot the worst movies Ive seen in a while. Way to slow and quite boring. Kristens acting was so slack

  • The first adaption of this groundbreaking book from the late 1950's is a huge disappointment. Garrett Hudland's brooding Dean Moriaty lacks all of the manic charisma of the book's character, and the boundary pushing, intellectual questioning of Kerouac and friends becomes simply a sex and drug-fest. The film's only redeeming factor is some magnicient scenes of the American countryside and believable 1940s streetscapes. The film itself however is not worth the effort. For a much better adaption see the 1980's film "Heartbreak" with Nick Nolte as Neal Cassady.

  • I expected much more landscapes. What a disappointment! Boring! The beginning of the film is a drama taking place in a city and not a "road film" at all...Then I have fallen asleep out of deep and genuine boredom... Recommended for drama buffs only.
