Let’s just start from the top. This is one of Denzel’s best all around performances. The movie is filled with religious under –tones, insightful metaphors, true and relative scriptures. The Hughes Brothers are amazing. Though, “The Book of Eli” may slightly predictable, the movie makes its point. It’s strong, forceful and really makes you think of what if. It shows you what society has become. And depicts society’s inner-creature, the ugly truth of western civilizations fall continued after a post –apocalyptic war. A war over religion is what is said in the beginning, briefly touched upon. This movie focuses on the aftermath; it’s a grim vision of the world, after the apocalypse. The movie is superb and the performance top notch.
