The Book of Eli (2010) R - 3 Stars

Like Mad Max and Thunderdome meet the bible. While it was a decent movie, there was just something lacking with me to make it an epic event. The message is purely religious and requires belief in the scriptures. For some, it's their importance of their faith that will rate this movie higher. My open mindedness refuses to believe this is the only ending.

30 years after the final war in the U.S., the cities of America are reduced to crumbled ruins, torn up streets and a handful of survivors. Those left have formed small gangs in desperate search of food, water and supplies and would kill their own mothers to get it. One male survivor Eli (Denzel Washington), carries the sacred tome, the only surviving bible, and protects it with his life as it holds the key to survival of the human race.
