‘God Warrior’ takes on a whole new meaning with ‘Eli’


Yahoo! Synopsis

Denzel Washington fights his way across a post-apocalyptic wasteland to protect a book that holds the key to humanity’s future.

Not entirely true; half of humanity can’t stop finishing each other off and eating them to even consider reading the bible.

While everyone played their parts ass-kickingly good, there was only one message that came across that I had a problem with;

Women, unless you’re useful of bait, you’re pretty much going to be an unpaid prostitute when the world ends.
I even prefer the mother and son role than this.

There are lots of biblical references (But for American audiences, clearly something that 90% of people would recognize), including the Egyptian cat.

The cinematography was beautiful. The shots of the sky and landscape, and the beautiful music. The monologue at the end actually made me teary-eyed.

I really do love this movie. It makes me want to be nicer to people, to even pick up a King James Bible and read it.

It’s good enough to get spot #3 on my list of Top 5 Movies.
