CineVue offered up a DVD review, giving the film 4 out of 5 stars. An excerpt:

Pearce has never been better as the haunted and disturbed protagonist, but it’s Pattinson who almost steals the show. Saddled with a thick and garbled Southern US brogue, he completely loses himself within the role, and even if he’s little more than a slow-witted hick, Pattinson’s performance manages to invoke sympathy from the audience, even when things take a decidedly dark turn. An indelible jaunt into the heart of darkness, Michôd has fashioned an very worthy follow-up to Animal Kingdom (2010)The Rover is a bleak and downbeat endeavour, yet it’s also an extremely rewarding and ultimately moving one.

Excerpt from Movies, Films & Flicks:

Guy Pearce is solid as always and continues his chameleon like work in genre cinema. The Rover could make for a perfect yet bleak Guy Pearce film festival alongside the The Proposition, The Road, Mementoand Ravenous. However, The Rover is Robert Pattinson’s film. He is capable yet dumb. He almost doesn’t know how to die. He is loyal to a fault and is a true wild card. Pattinson dissapears into the character and it all culminates with him singing Keri Hilson’s song “Pretty Girl Rock.”

Guy Pearce Makes Indiewire’s “21 Best Performances Of 2014″ List

Here’s what IndieWire had to say about Guy:

6. Guy Pearce – “The Rover”
With apologies to Robert Pattinson (and his legion of fans) who is very, very good in this movie, and continues to prove and reinvent himself in each new role, Guy Pearce owns “The Rover.” David Michôd post-economic collapse dystopian picture is very, very angry and mortally disillusioned, and Pearce embodies these qualities like blackened-heart furnace on the verge of eruption. The harsh, silent and severe nature of Pearce’s character (who’s in search of a car that embodies all that he no longer has) is also a canvas that echoes back to us; we can imagine the family he’s lost, the loved ones, the life that once had meaning; such is his furious bitterness. But a humanity is also occasionally glimpsed and it’s utterly heartbreaking when it briefly peeks through. Like a ratty, emaciated, lonely dog let loose in a ravaged outback, Pearce relentlessly forces his way back home the one thing left his is life that has consequence and buries it for good. Pearce’s character is already resigned to all forms of death, you cannot do him any worse and the affect that he transmits mostly through pained expression is devastating.
