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 :)
