The Book of Eli Reviews

Jeff Beck

"The Book of Eli" falls prey to several of the problems that "The Road" had, and while it wasn't as big a failure as that film, it's still a lot of apocalyptic wasteland to get through.

The ending of this film has got to be the longest ending in the history of cinema.

The Hughes brothers' film feels more vibrant than the bleak Road, which was launched at us in November. Here the brothers show us the horror but somehow the staid and calm Denzel feels more approachable than the distraught and scrambling Viggo.

I sat down to The Book of Eli expecting a lecture, and was instead treated to a rollicking action film that evoked the manic ultra-violence of Mad Max rather than the sensitive study of humanity of The Road.

The prophet Denzel practices his preach in the post-apocalyptic western The Book of Eli. Jesus will not be pleased.

The Book of Eli was missing a few chapters.

While the movie has illusions of portentousness, it can - and should - be taken as a chance to see good actors having a little too much ultra-violent fun.

... this post-apocalyptic odyssey manages to bring a spiritual miracle journey to the secular world and deliver a payoff on both levels.

A crackpot blend of sadism and scriptures, and reeking with the raw scent of a fanatical fundamentalism in cool video game clothing.

It's not a great film, but has moments of brilliance. Jennifer Beals is outstanding and the lack of heavy-handed religious grandstanding is a welcome touch.

...if you can't get enough of this postapocalyptic stuff,'The Book of Eli' isn't a bad addition to the genre.

"I'm not certain the shell-game resolution is worth the journey, but the picture is satisfactorily atmospheric and often challenging, perhaps even unintentionally chilling in its closing statement of devotion."

Its unusual ambition and thoughtfulness make it resonate a bit more than most slick studio action fare.

Coming hot on the heels of The Road, Eli is a far more conventional and formulaic vision of future hell.

Washington is always watchable and will hold your gaze during a highly ambitious but ultimately wonky attempt to inject spiritual depth into the blockbuster flock.

It's the risible writing and the self-important, self-righteous tone that ultimately prevents this odyssey from becoming the classic action film to which it aspires.

The Book of Eli opens with Denzel Washington's Eli murdering a cat, but by the end it's the film that has really screwed the pooch.

In its limpid simplicity and stock portrayals of good and evil characters, it has a forward momentum that's compelling.
