The first time I watched the movie, I didn't noticed that he is blind. But when you rewatch it, you can see all the little hints for it. Really cool. But every Denzel movie is cool ^_^
The Book of Eli is collection of all the things I love, so I might be a little bit biased. Please view the following words with that in mind.
The Book of Eli takes place in amazing post-apocalyptic world, that very much resembles a world of 'Fallout' and 'Wasteland' games. Main hero owns the very last copy of Bible in the world. Book that is not only amazing message, but also the strongest power tool in the world.
Breathtaking shots, amazing and believable atmosphere of the post-apocalyptic world, together with perfect choreography made Book of Eli a movie I have to recommend to absolutely everyone, right after The Matrix.
The Book of Eli is an excellent film itself and an excellent spin on the post-apocalyptic genre.
