(2010) This unexpectedly contemplative and lyrical, if violent, homage to spaghetti Westerns, martial arts films, and religious faith follows a lone hero (Denzel Washington) as he traverses a post-apocalyptic landscape using his considerable fighting skills to safeguard the only extant copy of the King James Bible. Director siblings Albert and Allen Hughes have succeeded at making an entertaining and relatively substantive movie, while refraining from saturating the proceedings in blood or prolonging the violent passages. Still, some will find the pairing of Scripture with stylized aggression unnecessary and avoidable. Intermittent strong violence including gun and swordplay and a killing intended to be merciful, much rough and some crude language, brief sexual innuendo. (L -- limited adult audience) (R – restricted) AMC (cable)
