It is more than ten years since the world was destroyedby what, nobody can say. Whatever it was, is that there is no energy, no power, no vegetation, no food.
The Man (Viggo Mortensen) and The Boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) are on the move with all their precious possessionswhatever food and clothing they can scroungeon their backs and in a shopping cart outfitted with a bicycle mirror so they can
see who's coming up behind them. Their desperate, improvised traveling gear and their scruffy unwashed bodies
give them the look of the homeless. And that is what they are. That's what everybody is in this lifeless frontier.
Even in this bleak universe, there are moments of happiness. The child's innate goodness, his compassion and his sense of wonder and curiosity remind the man of why he must keep on going no matter what, even when he has forgotten why he must do it.
ezxcellent movie based on an excellent book!!
Now I took the time to read the comments about this movie and like one person mentions, this movie is not for everyone. As for the person that said the book of Eli is better, they wouldn't know the difference between a good or bad movie if it hit them in the face. Honestly, this is a great movie, and in my opinion if your not mature and sensitive don't watch the movie.
