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
A Lost Tale: Billy animated short covering Carnegie's back story
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.
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 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.

“THE BOOK” is a well-told saga and a great -view!
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.
