I finally saw The Book of Eli last week. It’s one of very few movies I wish I would have paid the cash to see it in the theater, but for some reason (which I no longer remember) I never took the time to do so. It’s the only movie from Netflix that I kept an extra day to watch again. It’s one of my new favorite films, and certainly my favorite of the post-apocalyptic genre.
What surprised me the most were the overt Christian themes and references in the film. Hollywood doesn’t tend to showcase such things. If you’ve seen the film, you know what happens. If you haven’t, I’m not going to ruin it for you. Simply put, this film is one of the best I’ve seen that can provide talking points between believers and non-believers. Great cinematography, really good acting (Denzel is good, Gary Oldman is really good), and a great story showcasing the power of faith and the corrupting power of religion.
