4.0 out of 5 stars Visually Stunning Post-Apocalyptic Ride July 6 2010
By Peter Cantelon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
I knew from the minute I watched this movie that the reviews would be split and of course they were - almost right down the middle with some critics loving the movie and some hating it. I find when that happens the movie invariably has a strong moral or spiritual element that half the critics review the film as a film and the other half condemn it regardless of the quality as moralistic or heavy handed. So it is with The Book of Eli, a compelling (riveting really) film that stars Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis (of That 70's Show and the voice of Meg from Family Guy).

The story essentially breaks down to a good versus evil post-apocalyptic action flick. Performances by Oldman and Washington were what you would expect from such seasoned actors - excellent. I was surprised at Kunis actually. She is not exactly a heavy-weight in terms of acting but her performance in this film was admirable. She will no doubt see many other offers as a result of this movie. While the storyline is a tad predictable the pacing is excellent and almost from the beginning you realize that this is a movie building to a surprise ending. Nevertheless the film never seems to drag (except for a little at the end) and you are invested from beginning to end. Speaking of the end, like I said before it drags a tad but only in the sense that it could have ended successfully in about three places but carries on a bit.

Now to the technical details. I watched the film in glorious Blu-ray and if ever there was a movie made for said format this is it. Wow. You really cannot fully appreciate this film in any other format. The cinematography is like another lead actor that deserves an academy award...it looks that good.

Très bon film, l'édition haute définition sur bluray est excellente. L'image est très nette. Le son est aussi excellent. Contient bien les pistes françaises et originale anglaise. Très content de cet achat. C'est vraiment plaisant de le réécouter en haute définition.

Classic movie just had to have it in my collection. Quality is normal for a 4 year old movie, 5Gb not the super high budget movie you get now days weighing in at around 7Gb or Blue ray at 40 some, but a very decent picture quality. Glad i bought it and as usual anything stocked and shipped by Amazon is 5 star rating on shipping time. It was here 2 days after i ordered it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing April 17 2014
By tornitons TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I expected much more from this movie. Although well made, the story and the context leave to be desired. It is almost boring at times, maybe because I was expecting something more on the fantastic side. It has a smell of déjà vu. Probably won't be watching this one again any soon.

2.0 out of 5 stars it is not I was looking for Jan. 30 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was very désapointed for the movie, I though it was the life of Eli from the Bible. Yes, we have some scripture from the Bible. There is no gun's in the Bible and no tank and no cars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than From Hell... Dec 20 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Hughes Brothers are back with The Book of Eli, a post-apocalyptic tale. Sort of a hybrid between Mad Max, Waterworld (without the water) and a few more action movies we've seen before. By no means a great film, it nevertheless has energy, potential, a few nice acting moments, but one thing I couldn't put my head around to is this: if this is a post-apocalyptic world, how come Mila Kunis' character has such white teeth? Nevertheless, it's nice to see Denzel Washington in a bad ass role, looking as energetic as ever. The rythm of the movie is quite a bit better than From Hell, which was long, tedious and outstayed its welcome by a long margin.

Special features are interesting, but the picture-in-picture track is the meat of the set, containing quite a few in-depth elements, watchable separately as focus points. Otherwise, you have the usual 3-part EPK documentary that spreads over 36 meagre minutes, few deleted scenes, a focus on the music and that's about it. Warner is getting really cheap.

All in all, this movie is quite okay, entertaining and packing a lot of heat to its name, but it could have been re-worked a bit in terms of dialog and story... nevertheless, it shouldn't keep you from renting it first :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story Oct. 5 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is such a heart warming movie of dedication and commitment. It surprises you right till the end and leaves you thinking of Eli's journey he travelled on. He obeyed and paid a price and in the end it absolutely paid off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Jan. 26 2013

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I liked this movie. looked sharp and crisp for Blu-ray. It is filmed similar to Sin City or 300 where the scenes are dark and grim but a good buy for the price.
