    Cinematically this film falls a little flat in its pacing. The last 30 minutes (after Mila Kunis escapes Carnegie for good) are a bit of a slog. However, this is probably one of the most important christian films in decades in terms of what its saying about christians and how they use the bible. And for that I give it a lot of slack.

    The plot is pure EC Comics, and that is a compliment. I wish the script had been stronger, and less cartoonish about the Gary Oldman character.
    The look and the tone are believable, even though heightened, and the world-building is a fine balance of fresh ideas within our expectation of what life After will be like.
    But Oldman twirls too much moustache and his goons are too unquestioning and stooopit, right when we need to believe in the stakes.

    Eli is inspired, but it doesn't get us invested in the characters and expects us to accept what's happening without explanation or reason. The American accent by Oldman is pretty awful, too, although I guess it's good practice for him. The movie is colorless and half the action scenes don't even have music, which can be abit iffy at points. Washington is good as ever but we can't invest ourselves in his character as we learn little about him. The…

    Em um futuro apocalíptico retratado com uma fotografia dessaturada e de alto contraste, um homem carrega um livro que o governante de uma cidade deseja.
    Em uma mistura de Mad Max e parábolas bíblicas, O Livro de Eli pouco se destaca a outros filmes de gênero, tanto por criar personagens unidimensionais como por entregar cenas de luta/ ação pouco inspiradas (apesar delas serem ligeiramente compreensíveis, diferentes de muitos outros).
    A crítica ao uso da religião para governar os desesperados sem…

    OLD REVIEW: Gritty violence and a somewhat spiritual undertone, this movie blows your mind in the best ways possible. Stellar preformences by Gary Oldman, Denzel Washington, and Mila Kunis

    This is a great film. The deep storyline of a post apocalyptic world and a man just trying to complete the task the Lord has set him out on. Gary Oldman does a great job as the "bad guy". He believes that by holding the "book" he can make all the world follow his lead just because he is the only one who holds the word of God. Sure, critically I'm sure it's not a raving favorite, but for the…
