ISR MOVIES Presents: "The Book of Eli"

The Book of Eli is a vastly under-appreciated film that mixes martial arts swordsmanship in a post-apocalyptic ''survival of the fittest" setting. The movie's plot is pretty simple and has a biblical narrative.  Gripping, gritty, and intelligent. We enjoyed the subversive insinuation that religion can enslave as much as save. This movie shows both sides of that equation. Deep plot themes and powerful acting performaces by Kunis, Beals, and of course Denzel. One of the Hughes Bros. masterworks.

Co-Starring; Mila Kunis and Jennifer Beals and directed by the Hughes Bros.

Highly Recommended.
