    Its currently on HBO. Just a so-so movie. Good entertainment when you don't have to process stuff.

    i must have to see it again then, in case i missed something.
    i didn't like it too much.

    and this is the third movie (or is it the fourth) that denzel met the same fate. why is that?

    the blind woman is jennifer beals?
    i couldn't believe carnegie was gary oldman(sirius black) from Harry Potter o.

    the point of the movie was simply this: denzel is to deliever the last copy of a book that is powerful to the west where it will be safe and reproduced in a post apocalyptic world.
    cargnegie understands the power of the book and wants it for himself.
    drama. the twist at the end with denzel and why carnegie couldn't read the book when he finally got it. i was totally thrown by that, although somethings made sense when i realized what denzel's physical limitation was.
    (trying not to give anything away for those who want to watch it.)

    AAAHH I see it now, yeah yeah, even if Carnegie had the book he could not read it, I liked mila kunis in it too, and yes that was my alternate universe wife Jennifer Beals! uploadfromtaptalk1294103986638.jpg

    like sola said, if you want something mindless to watch, then go ahead.
    once was enough for me.
