STARRING Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman
WRITTEN BY Gary Whitta
DIRECTED BY Albert Hughes, Allen Hughes

In their first feature since 2001’s From Hell, the Hughes brothers (Menace II Society) give us a postapocalyptic thriller about a nomadic fighter (Denzel Washington) who carries a book that may hold the key to mankind’s salvation. Gary Oldman is a small-town despot who wants the book for himself. Mila Kunis also stars as a tough chick who ends up working to help Washington in his quest. Think The Road, but with more explosions.
