I expected a little more out of this movie. I am alright with the fact that I watched it but there wasn't much to the movie. Not much of a concept to take a bible out west. If you haven't seen it then this is one of those movies where if you're religious then you will probably like it a little more but if you're not then you probably won't. It gets a 4/10 from me.
This is the best movie I have seen in a long time. I didn't know what to expect when I picked up "The Book of Eli" at the Red Box, now I am happy that I did. The Book of Eli is an intense story of a man named Eli who has the last King James Bible (most likly the only bible). He had a vision from God saying to go West. Not only does this thirty year treck change Eli's life, he has the chance to save the entire human race. I recomend this movie for anyone over the age of ten. Two thumbs up! :)
One of the worst movies I have seen in a very long time. Huge Denzel fan but this movie was horrible! Can I rate it less then 1 star? The movie was slow, slow, slow, boring, boring, boring!!! I will think twice about ever seeing another Denzel film. I only paid $4.79 to rent the DVD and I still feel cheated. Worst movie I have seen in over a year. A total snooze.
this film is truly amazing with its great acting, story and action. denzel and gary oldman give an amazing performance like always. this film also contains unexpecting cameos and a slight twist at the end.
this film is deffinatly worth a watch, you will not be disappointed.
Well in the movie the "bad guy" wants to read it. But anyways this movie is a great movie. You have got to watch this movie no matter what. Its not just the story itself but the story behind it that will leave you speachless.
If you dont know what the Book of Eli is about the best off you will be. With no knowledge of the movie itll give you that much more of the experience.
All I can say is watch it you will not be dissapointed.
This is a very well stylized film from the Hughes Brothers who directed the 2001 flick, "From Hell" with Johnny Depp. "Eli" doesn't have a genius story but the symbolism and messages are really what got me into it. The dim lighting and Matrix-like camera angles in a post-apocalyptic world make for fantastic action scenes. The performances from Gary Oldman as the villain and Mila Kunis as the naive female follower are good but Denzel Washington once again kicks butt. He's an awesome actor. My favorite scene in the movie is the last. The movies creates this incredibly happy, almost fantasy world that is completely real. I'm not going to spoil anything but if you've seen the movie you know what I'm talking about.
