At the beginning of the movie, I found myself
watching over a man named Eli who continuously walks for miles and miles in a
world full of scarcity where there is no life to live in because of the absence
of resources. It can be seen that the setting of the movie that the world was a
wasteland where there are no abundant trees around to breath in, no resources of
food to get in, insufficient water to drink, land areas got dried up and
thousands of building stood and started to decay over the years and got rotten
because of the chaotic past that has the world began before then. The story
began to introduced Eli as a brave contender with a big heart and strong faith
in God that no matter how hard life is, he continuously strives to survive in
order to protect what is inside of his bag. He got up into houses just to find supplies
like water and killed animals for food. Eli continuously walks out of nowhere
which seems to be like he is not lost in the world. Day after day, he keeps on
walking under the heat of the sun and the lifeless land until he fulfills his
mission in the world. As a lone person, Eli is determined and just keeping his head
high as he protects a precious book inside his bag. This is not just an
ordinary book, but a book with hope and life that would open and widen the
minds of its readers through the truths of the world. This is the Bible, the
only book that survived during the war. That is why Eli kept it so sacredly and
privately because it is the only thing that would reunite and restore humanity
in the world as one nation and that could save us from the chaotic world we
live in. This sacred book believed to be spread out throughout the nations and
voice out its message to the people who believe in the Lord. Eli, as I refer
him as the messenger of God, showed how strong and brave he is despite of the
challenges he has faced.While walking in the midst of the empty land
with no water to drink on and food to eat, he found a bunch of wrecked cars and
saw a woman asking him for help. But this man, Eli sensed that it is a trap
from a group of men. Eli with his brave heart faced eye to eye these group of
men who tries to overpower him but with his skill, he fearlessly defended
himself from death and turn down those men on the floor. I believe that with
his strong personality and faith in God, he was given a gift of skill from God
that would protect him and save him from any kinds of challenges because he has
a purpose in life to fulfill. That first action scene in the movie, made me
believe that Eli is a person to look after because of what he has showed and how
he defended himself from a group of men which keeps me on track to the next
sequence of the story. After which, he found a remote area where few people
live in. A village where powerful individuals’ controls over people. It is also
a place where there are no sufficient resources that could sustain the life of
many people. This problem showed in the movie is what we called scarcity in
economics. Where it explains the improper allocations of limited resources
which resulted to the inadequate water supply in the ruined village. I fully
understand now why the people in the movie lined up even if there is a long
queue just to drink for the water. This is where the study of economics becomes
so significant because of it allows us to understand little things that could
answer our big questions in the world. As Eli, waited for his water, another
man tested him and got up again into action. It is where he met a man named
Carnegie and offer him a place to stay overnight. Little did he know, Carnegie
saw a potential skill of Eli to become part of his troops because of what he
saw from Eli’s fighting skills. At night, Carnegie sends Solara the daughter of
Claudia to satisfy Eli but being with a dignity, Eli refuses and Solara seeks
to stay so that her mother would not be hurt by Carnegie. Solara saw the book
that Eli’s taking care of. Out of curiosity, Solara tries to ask what the book
is all about but Eli stayed firm not to talk about it. The next day, when
Carnegie knew that Eli has the sacred book, he then sent his men to look out
and search for Eli
