Editorial Reviews

Rubber is the story of Robert, an inanimate tire that has been abandoned in the desert and then suddenly and inexplicably comes to life. As Robert roams the bleak landscape, he discovers that he possesses terrifying telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything he wishes. At first content to prey on discarded objects and small desert creatures, his attention soon turns to humans, especially a beautiful and mysterious woman who crosses his path. Leaving a swath of destruction behind, Robert becomes a chaotic force and truly a movie villain for the ages.

This is a five-star movie all the way, but it will get a lot of bad reviews from people looking for a horror movie, which it is not. It is a movie about movies and about audiences, from an absurdist perspective.

With a premise about as ridiculous as anything SyFy has served up (you know, the people who gave us Dinopossum vs. Crocopillar... or something like that), I expected this thing to peg the old Cheese-o-Meter. C'mon... A tire comes to life and starts killing everyone in sight? Instead, what we have here is a very funny, very literate, and very absurd little film with some great performances.

I fear that explaining what goes on will ruin the pleasure of discovery for those who would appreciate this movie. So I won't.

I'll just say that if you're looking for a horror movie, or a cheesy horror movie, this is not the film you're looking for--go about your business elsewhere. But if the word "absurd" doesn't scare you off, give this movie a try.

Hollywood is full of adaptations, sequels, prequels, remakes, re-imaginings, reboots, and spin-offs. The bottom line is that most movies hitting the big screen are familiar territory. When something original does come along, it usually "borrows" elements from films that influenced it or pays homage to said influential films that came before it. Truth be told, at this stage in the game, technically everything has already been done. Everything has already been written about or filmed or drawn or created digitally. All that's really left out there is the really bizarre topics. The stuff that you either think up randomly one slow Thursday evening or is obviously the result of one of the heaviest acid trips in history. I like to think that Rubber falls somewhere in the middle...of all three categories.

Rubber pretty much had me at Lieutenant Chad's (Stephen Spinella) opening monologue. Hell, he gets out of the trunk of a car just to illustrate the point of "no reason." What makes this scene special is that it kind of breaks the fourth wall while also introducing the secondary storyline of the film. Lieutenant Chad explains what we are about to see to the camera and then it's revealed that there is a crowd of people there who are also about to watch what transpires on screen. Mind you, they're watching with binoculars and their fates are kind of questionable given the film's primary storyline, but it was one of the more unique ways to start off a film.

Rubber is Robert's story. Who is Robert, you may ask? Robert's a tire; a car tire, to be precise. He wakes up one day to find out he likes to roll over anything that gets in his way, but once something more solid crosses his path like a beer bottle is when things get even crazier.

I wanted to like this film, I really did. I was enamored with the trailer and couldn't wait to give this one a view. Where it ultimately failed for me is the, in my opinion, ham-fisted delivery of The Plot, at the beginning of the film, by Lieutenant Chad. It wasn't enough for the viewer (i.e. me) to interpret this as art, absurdity and an exercise in "fourth-wall" mechanics. I had to be told this at the very beginning,while also being simultaneously told it is this very technique in story telling which makes a great film and style. Initially I assumed the speech to the viewer/spectator was something a producer insisted to help sell the film so it wouldn't be too abstract, but since the spectators were actually intrinsic to the plot (such that it is), I now assume this was not the case. This pretentiousness quiet simply put the whole film off kilter for me and I couldn't help thinking that the director really believed he was making a masterpiece of cinematic art. Something in which only time will tell. I freely admit, I could not get over this view.

There is some good here, however. This film is actually beautifully shot and visually interesting despite its lackluster scenery. Quentin Dupieux has an eye for some simple and amazing visuals and this reason alone is why I lasted until the end.

This film will likely be loved by some and reviled by others, it is that kind of film. For me it was meh. Worth a viewing if you're curious or as an example of simple and quality cinematography.

It had potential, but it was just not that good. The preview had more entertainment value, and it is a much smaller investment of your time.

The movie caught my eye because I thought it would be something like a train wreck that you could not look away from, maybe with a dash dry or cheeky humor. Except it was none of that - by the time I finished the show, that train wreck never happened.

I would compare it to watching weeds take over an unattended garden, only less interesting.

The only positive thing I can think to say about it is that the tire's motions were done well. There was definitely some character to it.

If you've watched the trailer to this film, you probably already know it is about a tire named Robert (by who, I don't know) who somehow just comes to life, and then proceeds to kill people and animals. If that's all you know about this movie, prepared to be surprised.
While the idea seems stupid, I am for some reason fascinated with the idea of a tire just randomly coming to life, and rolling around, being a living tire. It's the same reason I loved Sharktopus, because I love the idea of a Shark/Octopus hybrid created by the Navy. Though this movie is not really in the same vein as Sharktopus, which I wasn't really expecting to begin with, but it surprised me how this movie turned out. I'm still not enTIREly (Sigh) sure if the movie took itself seriously, or if it made fun of itself. I could go on for hours debating with myself with examples (i.e. The audience arguing with each other like they were at a movie theatre, or the young boy talking to Robert himself, trying to reason with it), but I don't think I should. Also, I am not sure if I feel that this movie is so-bad-that-it's-good (Sharktopus, Any Troma movie) or if it is an underrated piece of art (A Clockwork Orange, The Warriors). But what I know for sure it that I LOVE this movie to death; the opening scene where the audience was getting an explanation on "No reason", felt like a monologue from Shakespeare or a Greek playwright.
There was something incredibly artsy about the scene where Robert coming to life and exploring the desert. The directors gave Robert a personality, a soul. I mean, I'm calling it Robert like I'd call the main character from A Clockwork Orange Alex, simply because I truly believe and invest in the character that the movie gave me.
