Book of Eli(Blu-ray) (2010)
|Eli walks alone in post-apocalyptic America. He heads west along the Highway of Death on a mission he doesn't fully understand but knows he must complete. In his backpack is the last copy of a book that could become the wellspring of a revived society. Or in the wrong hands, the hammer of a despot. Denzel Washington is Eli, who keeps his blade sharp and his survival instincts sharper as his quest thrusts him into a savage wasteland...and into explosive conflict with a resourceful warlord (Gary Oldman) set on possessing the book. "We walk by faith, not by sight," quotes Eli. Under the taut direction of the Hughes Brothers (Menace II Society), those words hit home with unexpected meaning and power.|
"Establishing its storytelling rules clearly and well, the film simply is better, and better-acted, than the average end-of-the-world fairy tale Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
Editor's NoteIn a post-apocalyptic America where the once-picturesque countryside has become a desolate and violent wasteland, one man (Denzel Washington) fights to protect that sacred tome that could hold the key to the survival of the human race in this futuristic thriller from filmmaking duo Albert and Allen Hughes (FROM HELL and DEAD PRESIDENTS). Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, and Ray Stevenson co-star in the Warner Bros. production.

For starters let's just say that The Book of Eli is by no means a perfect movie. There are little holes in the plot and other things that pull viewers out of the experience. With that being said, this film offers an incredible and unique experience....read the full review|

An o.k. movie4/25/2012
It was ok for me I love Denzel but this did not wow me I don't want to give anything away because everybody before me gave brief or long description of the movie when I found out out what the book was I was saying to myself are you serious this is what they were fighting for for power but I guess it would make sense but don't get me wrong it's still watchable but for me personally it was just ok.
