While flawed, this film is worth checking out

"Cursed is the ground because of you, both thistles and thorns it shall grow for you, for you are dust and to dust you shall return."

Warning: It's impossible to fully evaluate The Book of Eli in a review without divulging what some may consider to be spoilers, even though the film and the trailers make no effort to hide this 'spoiler'. A spoiler warning is therefore in effect, but ... read more

Back in the 90's, the Hughes Brothers impressed with their amazing directing début, 'Menace II society', which is, in my opinion, the best movie in this genre, even better than the acclaimed 'Boyz'n the hood'. Unfortunately, in the next 20 years following this promising flick, they never really lived up to those expectations. However, they finally managed to direct a big budget production starrin... read more

“Although I am a fan of all things post-apocalyptic I found this to be rather disappointing. It did have some things going for it - the cinematography was nice, effectively using a muted colour palette. The acting was decent enough with a solid performance from Denzel Washington in the lead role, though he never gets to do anything particularly interesting, and able support from leading lady Mila Kunis. Gary Oldman was as good as always in the bad guy role, but his motivation to get his hands on the book was sadly unconvincing.

Action scenes were well staged but rather reminiscent of the Mad Max series and a plethora of Westerns. The main problem was the script which could have done with a lot more work. From the opening scenes Eli is just way too bad-ass with an ability to t” read more

“The book of Eli, is yet another powerful rendition of acting of Denzel Washington. The post war world, when most of the human race got annihilated by nukes, Eli has to make his way through the remaining, cut throat life form to reach west. It took him 30 years to reach its destination keeping a book safe, the only one remaining on the devastated earth, and to deliver it into right hands to be passed on to future human race, the book referred here is the bible, in brail that is learned by heart by Eli, the secret revealed at the end of the movie when he was forced to give a book to some one not meant to have it.” read more

"Normally I won't easily admit a story with religious background to captivate me. And firstly I wasn't sure about this whole invulnerability of the movie's hero but it got me somehow. I really liked the kind of style of end time here. I was into this grey but bright setting of light. And I sympathized with the two main charakters (Denzel Washington and Mila Kunis)as well, as with Gary Oldman's embodiment of the villain, and hey, what a great appearance of Tom Waits as a distrusting engineer and s"
