The Book of Eli (2010)



Thirty years after war turned the world into a wasteland, a lone warrior named Eli (Denzel Washington) marches across the ruined landscape, carrying hope for humanity's redemption. Only one other man (Gary Oldman) understands the power of what Eli carries, and he is determined to take it for himself. Though Eli prefers peace, he will risk death to protect his precious cargo, for he must fulfill his destiny to help restore mankind.-WWW


To be honest I did not want to watch this movie because the trailer looked so depressing. My curiosity was stirred up a bit when some of my friends mentioned that they love the powerful message of the story. They all warned me that it would be dragging at first, but it was a good movie to watch.

We take things for granted. Right now we have so much to thank for, but what do we do about it?  As early as now we should learn how to care for our environment and praise God from Whom all blessings flow.

Eli, the central character is very admirable. He followed "the path" that the higher power was telling him to take and finished his mission in life.

Former child star Mila Kunis played the role of Solara so well. She was not as beautiful as Helen of Troy, but judging from the rest of the women around her (horridly dirty), she was equivalent to Venus. Her mother, played by Jennifer Beals, was even more beautiful, physically, but Mila Kunis, for me, was perfect for the role.


This was one of the best Father-Daughter dates ever.  

After the movie dad had a tête-à-tête about the movie over cups of coffee and healthy guilt free desserts.
