The movie The Book of Eli is about a man, heading west, on a highway littered with death in post apocalyptic America.  He is on a mission, unsure of why he was chosen for this mission but knowing that at all costs he must complete it.  He is carrying a book that could revive society or in the wrong hands, further destroy it.  Cannabilistic thugs ambush weary travelers, water and batteries become increasingly hard to find, conflicts are around every corner as a power hungry warlord seeks to control everything and human life is cheapened at every turn.

The movie is well done and will keep you guessing right up until the end, as one of the key mysteries of the movie is kept cleverly hidden.  As post apocalyptic movies go this one is right up there with some of the best.
