This movie has a power message in a post apocalyptic world after a nuclear war. I really like this movie because one thing you don't see too many Afro-American actors lead a movie like this before. The second thing I like about it, is that Denzel's character carries the Bible in the movie and quote scriptures from it without being too preachy. It is nice to see the Word of God still alive after the end of the world. I strongly recommended that Christians to get it and watch it. It has strong language, violence not for young children under age 14.
This dark story opens in a desolated land were almost everything is dead, dying or struggling to survive. Eli is on a mission that is so sacred to him that he has been trekking to the West for over 30 years - it’s a man’s journey for the good of civilization and he carries with him a book that he will protect with even his life. Washington’s performance is awesome – especially his handling of the last two chapters of this story! Story needs to be seen again and again – it’s message just gets better each time it is viewed.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Denzel is spectacular!!!
This beautiful film is about a man who is on a journey to deliver the last remaining Bible to an undisclosed location and will stop at nothing to finish his journey. Denzel and the rest of the cast are all spectacular in their roles. Lots of action, a beautiful story and a top notch Blu Ray transfer makes this film a must own.
To begin, there will be a twist at the end that will churn some folks, perhaps even ruin the entire film for some folks. One thing is certain, Denzel Washington still has it. While it doesn't seem so, there's a lot of gritty gruesome action. If that's what you are into, then this film is for you. In a post apocalyptic world, where folks live day to day to get by and others take to get by, one man is on a mission. Overall the film has a very "cool" and "slick" stylization with it's overly saturated colors. This film will have a lot of people enjoying it, but it's ending is controversial for sure. Be wary and come in with an open mind.
