Cleared: The Book of Eli
I can't help but wonder how in the world this movie got made and released. Not because it's bad - it's anything but bad - but because it's so obviously, flagrantly, and unapologetically Christian. I'm loath to spoil it, but I can say that if you're a believer and can put up with some violence and crude language, you'll find a lot to like about this movie. It's fairly obvious that God isn't a mythological figure in this movie. Regardless of your religious or spiritual views, however, this is a very, very good movie. I'd recommend it highly not only to Christians, but action and post-apocalyptic fans. One of the most meaningful films I have seen in a long, long time.
