Synopsis:
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.11 We walk by faith, not by sight," quotes Eli. Under the taut direction of the Hughes Brothers {From Hell), those words hit home with unexpected meaning and power.

Didn't have a huge expectation of this film but was very pleasantly surprised. I was beautifully filmed as well.

Complete Rubbish - The Book of Eli review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

This was one of the worst Scifi films i have ever watched, the plot is so flimsy it beggers belief that Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman would ever consider starring in it.

What a waste of time and money watching this dribble....really angry as i looked forward to this one.

Book of Eli - religious propaganda rips off Mad Max. - The Book of Eli review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Nothing new about this film. Oldman chews the furniture up in a cliched baddy role. Washington is way too good an actor for this plot. It is Mad Max with a bible.

The only good things about the film are the soundtrack, the stunning cinematography (just epic and glorious) and some great cameos from frances de la tour, gambon and john waits.
