    Lo que bien puede ser descartado una versión de Mad Max se convierte en algo más profundo con su doble postura ante la religión (le da esperanza al mundo mientras puede usarse para controlar las masas). Pero eso no lo quita las geniales secuencias de acción.
    What could be written off as a Mad Max knockoff transcends with its double posture on religion (brings hope while also offering a possibility to control masses). Doesn't take away it has awesome action sequences.

    "And to the dust we shall return."

    This dogmatic religious dystopia brought to you by Apple® iPods®, Beats™ by Dre earbuds, KFC™ moist towelettes, and Motorola® megaphones. Consume our meaningless junk to help you forget about how that same consumption fuels our planet's constant degradation.

    That's really an unfairly reductive summary of the film, but at least it gets a lot of my problems with it out of the way early. It's no secret that The Book of Eli is…

    My review -- this film is now on DVD and Blu-Ray and the first thing that hits me is the fact that this film has very little tempo at the beginning, which is incredibly frustrating. So with that being said after a little while, this film begins to warm-up especially when Mila Kunis as [Solara] gets introduced into the film, Mila plays a crucial part in this film. Because she in essence represents us the viewer, her dialogue is of…

    Rekao bih da je ovo, uz The Road, ponajbolji film na temu post-apokalipse. Nisu se previše potrudili da objasne šta je uzrokovalo propast svijeta ali u ovakvim filmovima je uvijek važnije da što vjernije prenesu depresivnu atmosferu i ljudsku borbu za opstanak koja često na površinu izbacuje njihove skrivene životinjske osobine, a The Book of Eli to radi sa stilom.

    Easily one of my favorite movies of all time due to one of the biggest plot surprises of all time. Denzel plays a man named Eli who is taking a book to the other side of the united states. he started on the east coast and ends up in san Francisco after a few meets up with the bad guy gary oldman. the movie as a whole is amazing and shows why denzel is so amazing.

    A pretty boring experience, but only because it is very slow paced. The story is there, but really is only enough for a short film. Denzel is the hero of the hour and courtesy of the Hughes Brothers (FROM HELL), walks an apocalyptic American landscape slicing up anyone who stands in his way. Gary Oldman, of course, is one of these people, and wants the very book that he carries, and though it's obvious what the book is about a…

    Even though I wouldn't call myself religious, I can say that this is still a pretty awesome movie. Most of all, I love the way The Hughes Brothers direct it (the tracking shot action sequence is great) and the raw feel they give to the story; it's an action movie that doesn't feel like an action movie -- in a good way. Plus, the performances, especially from Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman, are very strong. And again, I'm not religious,…

    Meh! "The Road" was far better than this. Also, the premise is hard to swallow. In a post-apocalyptic world Washington is the sole carrier of the last remaining Bible, ordained by a voice in his head to take it West - to a bunkered down museum in Alcatraz in fact! His precious cargo is sought after by villainous Oldman whose intentions include setting up a new corrupt world order. If it sounds silly, it's because it is. It is a good looking pic, as per usual with any Hughes Bros. project, and does have some hard-hitting action set-pieces, but that's about it.
