44% on the tomatometer? I dont get why critics are bashing this movie. I personally loved this movie.
I love post-apacoliptic movies. The Road Warrior, The post man, and now this.
The story is simple. Years ago society was destroyed by some nuclear war and in the process all the Bibles are burned. Eli is a man who is determined to travel west so he can find a safe place for the last Bible in America.
On the way he runs into the mayor of a town who wants the Bible desperately so that he can use it to gain followers (not in a good way). So Eli has to travel west while the mayor and his men hunt him down.
Now the movie isn't perfect. I didn't like Mila Kunis's character. She got in the way and didn't really do much. And Denzel Washington's invincability is a bit much.
I would recommend this movie for good action, a good story, and amazing acting by Denzel Washington. 4/5
