OPENS FRIDAY 1/15

A buff Denzel Washington fights his way through this stylish post-apocalyptic Western as Eli, who crosses the ravaged landscape carrying a dog-eared book, which a tyrant (Gary Oldman) desperately wants. With vigorous action, a strong story and an actual point -- the written word is more powerful than the sword -- directors Albert and Allen Hughes have traveled parallel to 2009's The Road, but made a more entertaining film.
