Book of Eli (2010)
Ah, Denzel Washington, the control freak’s ultimate fantasy father – he has everything planned out. And yes, he’s playing the usual I-know-more-than-you character – but frankly you'd want that, in the wild post-apocalyptic world where Book of Eli takes place. It’s a bit like Pale Rider but with more obvious religious overtones – thanks to the book that can save humanity – more gore and less Clint.
