I remember seeing the trailers for this and thinking "Woah! This looks good, I'll have to go see this when I'm not at work!"
So we went last night, and all I can say is, I'm glad I didn't actually PAY for it.

The film starts in an apocolypic world, quite like Fallout 3, and pans through the forest, dust falling from the trees. Zooms into some dead body and a hairless cat sniffing away at him, you then see a man in a full gasmask suit sitting with his feet up against a crossbow watching the cat. Eventually firing on it. (This bit built my hopes up!)
It then gets onto him walking across a barren landscape full of hollowed cars.
The terribleness starts here.

We eventually see him beating up bandits on the highway and watching from a distance as some woman gets raped for her books (Eh?), and then arriving in some time, where we meet our incredinly wierdly named villain (I still can't remember his name...) and our soon to be heroine, Solara. There's this whole episode of our villain hurting her mother after she finds out what book the main guy has, and of course it's the book he wants, figures.

They escape yada yada.
I won't go into anymore detail but there's a whole escapade of big guns, gun fights, sword fights and eventually the stealing of the book. Solara finds out he's called Eli, Woo a Name! They continue travelling and reach Alcatraz where Eli tells the guy there that's printing books he's got a copy of it.
After ALL the worrying, we find the stolen Bible our evil man has a hold of is a Brail bible, and that Eli was blind...and has remembered ALL OF THE BOOK.

Suprise Suprise, Eli then dies, and Solara heads back off through the Barrens.
End of film.

3/10 Atleast for the Action scenes.

Thanks for the warning - I was already not impressed with the first look of the film but might have given it a chance. :)
