'The Book of Eli' (2010) starring Denzel Washington

Crisis conditions: A holy war has left most of Earth ravaged, waterless and, for some reason, illiterate. The hero's journey: A ruthless nomad traverses west unhindered by his blindness, driven by a voice that tells him to deliver a strange book to its haven on the coast. The look: Lived-in trenchcoat and khakis, over-sized shades, fingerless gloves. Weapon(s) of choice: Sawed-off shotgun, bow and arrow, machete.
