Joseph's Review of The Book of Eli
The Book of Eli(2010)
As a fan of movies set in post apocalyptic wastelands I had high hopes for this movie. Denzel is an incredible actor and Gary Oldman can play a villain like few can. What could go wrong?
For me it was the storytelling. I never got engrossed in what the characters were doing and I didn't care about what happened to the main character. Denzel's character was to withdrawn and mysterious for me to relate to. The one moment in the movie that made me sit up and take notice (A Sixth Sense type revelation) had me wondering if I missed some part of the plot.
Overall this movie is an OK way to waste time on a rainy day.
