This is a post-catastophe tale of (surprisingly) the fate of a book. The performances completely carry the film; both Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman are terrific. The cinematography is excellent with a burned out, stark and barren landscape. Religious overtones are definitely present, but they are at a tolerable level where you can decide how much to read into it. It is a conflicting presence, on one side we see that all religious books have been destroyed because religion was the cause of the war and present fate of mankind, and also that people still seek it to use as a weapon to control the weak and feeble minded. And then there is the other side of blind faith, and a man inspired to protect what he thinks will bring peace and hope to struggling humanity. The score was fantastic. It had a jarring, unsettling quality that blended perfectly with the danger fraught wasteland. There were some serious issues with the story, however. The revelation about Eli at the end makes a lot of what happened seem highly implausible. The fight scenes seemed straight out of a samurai movie. Why are a bunch of weary, ragtag survivors wielding their machetes, chainsaws, etc. in such a graceful and perfectly choreographed way? Also, at times the lighting seemed nonexistent. It was more like watching a shadow play, but I suppose was meant to fit in with the overall gritty and repressive atmosphere. An entertaining, if flawed, film that was worth watching, but I doubt I will be revisiting it.

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.

The Book of Eli has a good story plot, is well acted, and especially highlights the action-dramatic range of Denzel Washington. Gary Oldman is excellent as well. If you like these guys, then you'll probably like this movie.

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.

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!

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.

By L. Power HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 20 2012
Format: DVD
Now has earth become a dangerous post apocalytic place populated by desperate, lawless people, scrabbling for survival, prepared to kill for the contents of a backpack. Women are used as bait to trap the unwary, and as the pawns and playthings of villains.

The sky has faded from its usual blue, what was solid has turned to very dust, grey has become the fashion, clothes and large concrete pipes collect the grit, and you can sense the dryness and heat of the torrid zone. When the movie goes indoors, the richer tones emerge. The blind woman is colorful without a sense of color.

As other people hunt people, Eli (Denzel Washington) hunts his own food. In this world, traveling by yourself, you need a sixth sense to survive, and Eli's with heightened senses can smell trouble before it emerges. He can somehow see the trap before it is sprung.

In this world a certain book has power, and Eli carries it, and understanding its power protects it.

In the first confrontation, he could surrender his backpack and probably live but lose the book, but he demonstrates his resourcefulness in lethal ways, ways that seem at odds with his mission, one of whose aims would be not to kill.

The more we know the nature of his mission, the more incongruous his behavior appears. When he observes a husband being shot, and a wife about to be raped by a biker gang, he faces a dilemma, and makes a strage mission decision. Will his behavior change in the future?

Further displays of his lethal skills impress a local villain Carnegie (Gary Oldman), a man on his own mission to get the one 'book,' which will help him to control the unruly masses. Carnegie uses manipulation and fear to control people to get what he wants.
