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.

At last, an action movie even the Pope can love.

Directors Allen and Albert Hughes stage some impressive set-pieces, including intricately choreographed fights and a stunning shoot-out covered by a single rotating camera.

Gary Whitta's script seems set out to mimic the contours of a religious parable. It has simplicity, sweep, incredible last minute plot twists, mystical happenings and a fundamental belief in Faith.

Though The Book of Eli devolves into a very basic series of pitched battles between the good and evil adversaries, the film does exert a tight grip on the viewer.

A sense of heavy handed earnestness weigh the film down, with meaningful close ups of Denzel's determined and decent face. He is doing God's work. And God has armed him well; the sense of déjà vu is heightened by the entire production design and CGI

Unless you go into the film with low expectations, you'll probably walk out wishing the Hughes brothers disappeared for another nine years.

It is nice to know that even after the apocalypse, people will still be listening to Al Green.

Bursts of action, in which Eli turns a dozen thugs into a circle of bodies, and an interesting punchline make the moody end-of-the-world visuals bearable.

Hollywood has released a mainstream action movie about the Bible. If Eli sparks discussion about faith and the vitality of God's Word, that's cause for acclaim.

t's a post-apocalyptic western, it's an evangelical tract, it's a road movie, it's a martial arts movie, it's a disaster movie, it's a graphic novel. It's equal parts The Road and The Robe, A Fistful of Dollars and Fist of Fury. It's Mad Max meets Left Be

Not a movie for atheists. Richard Dawkins would probably insist on a refund!

The first feel-good, post-apocalyptic, religious thriller of the year (unless you hate Christians, deplore gun violence, and/or love book burnings.)

Hey, it's Denzel. But, unfortunately he's caught in a post-apocalyptic thriller pieced together from so many other films. The radiation has apparently gone to his brain. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Yes, it's another post-apocalyptic movie. But it stands on its own as a gripping, entertaining story with a couple of nifty twists.
