Kristen Stewart’s ‘On The Road’ Receives Mixed Reviews From Critics

Despite its salacious sex scenes, not everyone is loving ‘On The Road.’ Check out the mixed reviews below!

Though we had high hopes for Kristen Stewart‘s On The Road, critics just couldn’t seem to agree as to whether they liked the film adaptation of the iconic coming-of-age novel, directed by Walter Salles.

Here’s a breakdown of the reviews:

Entertainment Weekly:

“What he doesn’t give us – and what makes the book work – is Kerouac’s bedazzled bohemian swoon. Without it, On the Road is a curiously remote experience, all reason and no rhyme.”

Time Out Chicago:

“This is On the Road as experienced by someone who exhibits no personality, a story of self-discovery in which there’s no self to discover.”

The List:

“What we’re left with is a pleasant story of a group of friends on a road trip, not the captivating, liberating spirit of Kerouac’s classic.”

Doodle:

“Derogatory dismissals of prosaic visual experiences have been around since, well, someone was bored to tears. To the poetic hyperbole of watching paint dry, or grass grow, we can add: watching a writer write.”

The Hollywood Reporter:

“While the film’s dramatic impact is variable, visually and aurally it is a constant pleasure.”

But even if the reviews of On The Road are varied, Twilight fans won’t want to miss Kristen in her edgiest role yet!

Are you planning on seeing the film?

I can’t beleive I watched this movie all the way 2 the end. . This film disused me .. If u want to watch men getting it on buy a porn film don’t put this in a theater it doesn’t belong their. And watching KS makes me not even want to watch breaking dawn part 2 when it comes out as much as I was looking forward to it . Every film she’s I’n she stays the same she really. can’t act . And also at her age her being topless and the scenes she was in will come back to haunt her ., I really think this film is a disgrace and as I said if u want to c a man banging a man get a porn keep this trash out of the theater.

I don’t think I will go out of my way to see the same facial expressions from her. I don’t understand the infatuation with her.

Don’t understand why she even gets hired. I think she should stick to modeling and endorsing fashion brands

I don’t understand how anyone could consider her very talented when her facial expression is always the same whether she is sad, happy (which I have never seen her look), mad, depressed, etc.

the only reason people are going to see the movie is because of the car and bedroom scenes with k.s.——it took them over 30 years to get this book made into a movie so it can really be THAT good—i read the book a few times and it was a bit strange—–i have no desire to ks in a movie at the moment

All the critics just said that the book was better then the movie but all the actors’ performances were praised. Post the good reviews too HL. What a biased article. At least put some good reviews is.
