Always a pleasure to watch this movie. A perfect amount to of bloodshed to plot ratio. Interesting concepts that do not feel like they are imposed on you.

Interesting to see critical responses. Well directed and perfectly cast.

Have watched more times than I can recall.

Fresh and smart, "The Book of Eli" is an underrated and under appreciated film.

Some mighty fine choreographed violence. Certain scenes have some of the best editing I have ever seen.

Faith and perserverance, then conclusion for the goal that has been set and the person who took on the challenge to make it happen. I love it cuz it shows that even in a world like that, people can always find ways of bringing people together with peace.

Book of Eli is a HIGHLY underrated movie. Don't believe the critics on this one... it's concerning a subject that may ruffle the feathers of the elite. I was surprised by how great this movie was.

Probably the best post-apocalyptic movie since The Road Warrior.

Another example of critics getting it wrong, and the audience getting it right in my opinion, awesome movie and awesome soundtrack!

Basically, this is Mad Max, Children of Men, and Fahrenheit 451 all rolled up into one, and I love every minute of it. Easily my favorite Denzel Washington movie. Insane visuals, great action, a fascinating world, sound design that packs a punch, and great acting from Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis. It's been years since I saw this, but I loved it the first time I saw it, and loved it even more the second time. Easily recommended for anybody who loves post apocalyptic stories.

Personal Grade: S++
Technical Score: 96%

Mad Max meets Fahrenheit 451?!?! The cinematography is jaw-breaking, Mila Kunis is gorgeous, but the film remains forgettable.

I was really shocked just how gripping the story was, when there was a mention of a important book, I guessed something religious. What surprised me the most about this film is that not once did it lose my attention, even when it was confirmed that it was a religious story.

I felt there would be a big shocking moment from the start, but in no way did I see this coming, it was an amazing ending. It's one of them films that you could watch again straight after, just to see things in a new light, knowing what you now know. You kick yourself when you realise, certain bits stand out more.

I watched The Book of Eli because a friend explained it as a apocalyptic film, it was so much more.

The Tomatometer rating is pretty accurate.
While the acting is good to excellent, the director failed the movie as science fiction. We are expected to believe that three decades after the fall of civilization due to nuclear holocaust..., only Eli has a bow, and nobody that survived has ever figured out how to make another, OR how to make black powder weapons? If not Outlaw Josey Whales style revolvers, then what about flintlocks? OH but motor cycles, they can keep producing tires (even if they found unused motor cycle tires, they would've rotted on the shelves) and produce fuel and motor oil for the motor cycles and cars? One clown has a chain saw.....

Despite its unevenness, this apocalyptic book-to-film adaptation does have some stylish fun and solid performances.

Adequate but forgettable.

A film built around Denzel. Occasions of above average action and little thrills sprinkled here and there. The overall tone and added humor was enjoyable. The film did lack when it came to execution however. Its poor pacing and a lack of focus were the biggest issues.

A grim, post-apocalyptic tale that has more than a few surprises in store, The Book of Eli is passable movie fare.
