Synopsis [A]n intense, surprisingly serious study of a man making his way through a wilderness of catastrophic destruction and human cruelty like a latter-day prophet.3.5 stars out of 5 -- Directing team The Hughes Brothers have chosen ELI as their first film in nearly a decade and though it certainly delivers all the fireworks you might come to expect from their earlier work, its religious undertones separate it from the pack...The Hughes brothers have a vivid way with imagery here, as in their earlier films....The film looks and feels good, and Washington's performance is the more uncanny the more we think back over it.A lean, stark, surprisingly effective headliner in Hollywood's ongoing apoc-a-pala-looza.An attractively grizzled Denzel Washington plays the enigmatic Eli, a true believer with quasi-mystical fighting skills...[Washington] beautifully inhabits the film's titular hero, a laconic, solitary gunslinger who's also a custodian of a mysterious tome...One of the clever conceits of the script by first-time Gary Whitta is that there are only a handful of people still alive who remember how things were 'before'...[A]n intense, surprisingly serious study of a man making his way through a wilderness of catastrophic destruction and human cruelty like a latter-day prophet.THE BOOK OF ELI takes the form of an ultra-violent graphic novel, with Washington as a steely Man With No Name type who cuts a righteous path through the gullets of sinners and savages. -- Grade: B[A]mong films about material scarcity, religion and power, it compares favourably with THERE WILL BE BLOOD.The real draw is the spaghetti western homages, Tom Waits bartering goods and hand grenades being 10-pin bowled under trucks.In 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.
