Book of Eli Movie Reviews
User reviews on Book of Eli
The setting is post-Obama America with complete social, economic and moral collapse. Denzel's character has a mission to complete and he is protected along the way from characters who would kill for a glass of water or a few batteries. Very violent with a fair amount of vulgar language. Very well done and a surprise ending.
Presents an interesting case for the post-apocalyptic film as the re-birth of the western, but beyond that it's pretty dumb
soo..... people that are deeply religous love the movie and people that are not overly religous think the move is trash?
Since I am not overly religous, I will wait until its out for rental. Not going to waste $9 on a so so movie even if its the greatest bible thumping movie since sliced ham...
Since I have no religious preference this movie did not impress me.
Sadly one of my comrades had given away the crucial secret of the movie which explained a lot at the end. Now I already knew at the beginning. That changed the impact of the movie on me also.
It seems that Hollywood is going cheap while making a lot of movies lately with a couple of known actors in it with a weak story still taking the same money from us.
This is a definite low budget movie as was Mad Max but lacks the originality of Mad Max. Already seen, many times repeated.
It is becoming difficult to outdo the better movies of the past.
What an extraordinary movie! I've seen it twice and will go again. Each time I see and understand more than before. I am very impressed with Denzel Washington and applaud the producers for making this movie. Throughout the movie, I was moved to tears and greatly surprised at the end. The story line is very strong, powerful and believable. The story is message of faith and a testament to the strength of the Holy Bible - it's power cannot be destroyed. It is not about religion but a lifestyle of faith. The greatest commandment is to love God with all our hearts, mind and soul. The second is to love our neighbor as ourselves. We should care about others more than we care about ourselves. I would buy many copies of this DVD to share with friends and family. This is a better than great movie!!
This to me was one of denzel's greatest parts. A movie that made
you think and kept you on edge of your seat. Thank God for the
producers' of this movie. This movie has a meaning and if you listen carefully it will cause you to think about the time that God
gives each and every one of us on this earth. What a great movie.
i walked out as soon as the cat was killed and then held up like a stuffed toy....shame on you denzel washington for stooping so low to do a movie putting down animals....disgusting...cats aand cats are far better off than how the human race is unraveling....how dare movies like avatar and this crap make them look as rotton as villians!
If you liked the "Mad Max" films of yester year, you will like this one. It's more of a guy's flick about things after "the bomb." Im not sure women will be a fan of this one...except if they are Denzel devotees. It's very violent in places. Denzel does a great job in his leading role...as per usual. The central theme about a man fixated on a very specific mission is unique. There is some underlying social commentary with linkage to a notion that religion and its philosophies drives the (sheep-like) masses. Nothing boring about this movie. It's well crafted and well worth seeing. Better than most.
Extraordinary with a hint Surprise, I was not ready for this to be such a well writen movie. There was not much hype for this picture but it definitley deserves 5 stars. It was very informative and had many little surprises; good acting with just the right amount of action. The ending has a twist with a biblical meaning. Go see this in theaters and you will be very pleased.
this movie was GREAT!!!! great work and I will see it again and again and again..and telling everyone about also..At first I didn't know just what to expect..and after seeing this movie I can't seem to forget this movie...It was and is a movie that has stirred my soul...I can't wait also when it comes out in dvd so that I can purchase many copies and pass out to my family and friends
