Here we go again…The Road, I Am Legend, Terminator 4, etc. A loner survivor, charred remnants of an extinct civilization, marauding gangs of zombie goons. Beware any plot synopsis that involves “protect[ing] a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind.” As well as purple narration that uses lines like “something-odd years ago, the war tore a hole in the sky.” The Book of Eli, starring Denzel Washington and directed by the Hughes brothers, opens on 1.10.10.
