In a post-apocalyptic America where the once-picturesque countryside has become a desolate and violent wasteland, one man (Denzel Washington) fights to protect that sacred tome that could hold the key to the survival of the human race in this futuristic thriller from filmmaking duo Albert and Allen Hughes (From Hell and Dead Presidents). Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, and Ray Stevenson co-star in the Warner Bros. production.~Jason Buchanan

Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
One of Denzel's best.
This was an great story and Denzel shines as the lone wanderer on a mission. The cinamatography was almost as if I was watching a movie based on the video game Fallout 3. The bleak colors set the stage for a post-apocolyptic world in which Denzel navigate his way through, looking for food and tasked with protecting a very valuable book. I won't give away any plot spoilers, but what the book is, is not the mystery. In fact, it is revealed rather early on, and specifics are few and far between leaving it to the veiwer to fill in the gaps. The mystery is trying to understand why Denzel was given this task and what exactly that task is. Great directing, great acting, and the ending will have you thinking about it for days. I saw this in the theatre and have been looking forward to seeing it again ever since so I could watch it with the knowledge of what is revealed in the end. It makes it a totally different story all together.
