The Book of Eli was a highly anticipated film for me and although some of my friends had their issues I loved it. This isn't a perfect movie but it was a damn good one. Anywho, here goes the synopsis, In 2042, thirty years after an apocalyptic event, Eli (Denzel Washington) travels on foot toward the west coast of the United States. He keeps very little on him, somehow he has a working ipod, sunglasses, and a heavy arsenal that makes him one the deadliest men still alive.      …

Kicking Butt After the Age of 50
A quick visit to Wikipedia and I discover that Mr. Gary Oldman is starting to live up to his namesake. No offense, of course, to those over the nice round age of 50. In fact, take it as a compliment. It means that at the age of 51 you can still intimidate the heck out of us younger-folk. That is, if you are anything like Gary Oldman. Even past his 50s he remains one of the most unnerving personas to hit the screen. And boy does he rattle the nerves in The Book of Eli.      Another …

A Synopsis based solely on the trailer:      Denzel Washington (Eli) plays a guy that is a cross between Mad Max and Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil.  Eli has a chip on his shoulder.  I’m not surprised.  He has been wondering the earth since its destruction 30 years ago.  Wandering by yourself would give you psychological problems.   One of Eli’s biggest psychology problems is that he doesn’t like to be touched.  If you touch …

review by . January 18, 2010
The world following the apocalypse has become a nearly barren desert, populated by loosely knit groups of humans who cling to survival with dirty talons, and make little effort to cling to civilization. Many drive modified motorcycles. Into this desolation wanders a lonely figure, reluctantly on a journey that urges him to disassociate from humanity in favor of headlong movement across the landscape. He is also a ferocious fighter when he needs to be, and under the hard exterior is capable of feeling …

Pros: Great Cast and Story.     Cons: Some may find message to heavy.     The Bottom Line: A solid and entertaining film with a good message.     In a post apocalyptic future, a loan man travels the desolate roads on a solitary quest. The man known only as Eli (Denzel Washington), has been travelling west for decades on a mission of faith after receiving what he believes to be a mission of divine origin.     The solitary …

You got to have faith when there's no love. An apocalyptic future; one man has the key - and others want badly enough to kill. Great film.
