Denzel Washington is a man on a mission. To protect a book that may be the cure that mankind has been searching for since the sky opened up and rained destruction on the planet. In this bleak post apocalyptic future he must face off against a madman played by Gary Oldman who also wants the book for all the wrong reasons.
I really liked the look of the flick. That almost sepia tone to the world and it was a novel idea for a post apocalyptic movie. Both Washington and Oldman give stellar performances in the film.
The Book Of Eli is probably one of the best of these type of movies since The Road Warrior.
