    Ok, saw the movie last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. My question to those who have seen it. Was he a prophet? That is my interpretation maybe I am wrong but it make sense to me. Any other opinions?

    Saw it yesterday... If they proved that he had God on his side early in the movie, we pretty much knew he would be successful and all enemies would fall. They rode the line with it till the end. The signs of divine intervention, or hints, were the victorious fight scenes, impossible gun & bow shots, and ability to sustain massive injuries like a gut shot.

    I took it as him being a modern-day Moses.

    As is a common theme with God, he used a common man to accomplish his work which in this case was keeping HIS WORD alive. The miracle here is that Eli was blind. All the hunting and travelling was done by sound. Little hints include the scene where he shoots down the bird in mid-flight by listening and the little stumble on the steps as he walks into the cannibal's house. Obviously he had heightened senses and God's hand in keeping him safe.

    That's was probably the premise of the movie.

    Too bad he was only capable of remembering the English translation of the King James Version of the bible.

    Can you call "braille" "English"?
