'The Book of Eli' is a post-apocalyptic action film that released in 2010 to mixed reveiws and deserved box-office success.

The movie is set thirty years after an apocalyptic event and shows the mysterious Eli (Denzel Washington) travelling on foot towards the west coast of the United States to deliver an important book to a place of safety. During the travelling Eli attempts to overcome many dangerous obstacles.

The movie starts with a visually stunning scene, which sets the mood for a thrilling experience, progresses with a good build-up of tension and excitement and finally climaxes with a couple of cracking twists. The final twist is something you can't predict.

The story may seem straight forward but what makes it something special is the combination of the mystery surrounding Eli's character and the book, engrossing performances, emotional/dramatic scenes and an addition of well placed exciting action. It's a simple story told in an authentic manner making the full movie interesting and entertaining from beginning to end.

Denzel Washington who is also one of the producers of the movie puts in a restrained but a really likeable and moving performance. He's appealing as an action hero due to looking trimmed and at the same time is cool with the shades. Washington also impresses with his smooth and convincing dialogue delivery. Gary Oldman is ideal and effective as the main villain. The verbal exchanges between Washington and Oldman pack a punch. The surprise package in the movie is Mila Kunis who enacts the role of Solara. Her performance is to an extent stong and provides excellent support to Washington.

The direction provided by The Hughes Brothers (consists of the twins, Albert and Allen Hughes) is excellent.

The Book of Eli is directed by The Hughes Brothers and written by Gary Whitta. It stars Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson and Jennifer Beales. Music is by Atticus Ross and photography by Don Burgess. Story is set thirty years after a nuclear war and finds Washington as Eli, who is travelling on foot across the desolated landscape to the West of the United States to deliver a sacred book. It's a journey fraught with danger, more so when a stopover in what remains of a town brings him into contact with self appointed town leader Carnegie (Oldman). For Carnegie seeks the book that Eli is guarding with his life......

Post apocalypse movies have had a good run over the years, it's a theme that holds a morbid interest to film makers and film watchers alike. The Hughes Brothers have attempted to give this particular strand some new life by blending the sombre tone of something like Viggo Mortensen starrer, The Road, with Mad Max violence. A blend, it has to be said, that doesn't come totally off as Eli is in turns a God fearing man of few words, then the next a Kali martial artist laying waste to apocalyptic rapists and thieves. Further problems arise with the miscasting of Kunis. A good actress who looks yummy supreme here, but that's half the problem, she just doesn't look right in this apocalyptic set-up, while some of the daftness that comes with her character arc is barely palatable.

However, if accepting it on its two fold terms, it's great as a mood piece and fun as an actioner! Washington is such a watchable star, someone who can lift an average film to better heights. Although this is not one of those average films, he has a commitment to the role of Eli that gives it a believability factor that few modern day actors in the same age group can.

Absolutely loved it! A superb film, I loved the film style with very subdued hues and tones in all the visuals. The story itself is not particularly complex and the characters are not that deep and I'll have to be honest if you're paying attention you will fathom the plot twist about half way through the movie. All the same I loved it, not usually a fan of Washington's films but I thought him and Oldman played interesting characters, not particularly deep but interesting.

`The Book Of Eli' explores one idea of what life could be like in a post nuclear war world. Here food, water, energy and books are hard to come by and every day is a struggle to survive. Eli (played by Washington) is known as a walker, who travels across the country (rather than living in a community) trying to subsist on meagre provisions and fighting off lawless robbers just to get by. He only goes into the communities (one of which that is run by the iron handed Gary Oldman) when he needs to recharge batteries or get extra water. He protects a sacred book which is highly sought after by other unscrupulous people and constantly moves west so that he can share his treasure with someone who may know how to do more good with it.

This film had a bleak feel to it at first, with muted colours and lots of ash, but it soon began to feel like a cross between a Mad Max film, an action film (due to Washington's `kick ass' character who is more than capable of looking after himself against some rather unsavoury specimens) and a religious allegory about mans folly's and humanity. This was reminiscent of `The Road' which I saw recently and which is based along similar themes, but I found this films story to be more engaging and more uplifting at the end and much prefer it over the aforementioned film. The acting is pretty decent from all involved and Oldman plays his sneering bad guy role perfectly yet again. There is a good twist in the tale and some issues are raised about mans behaviour without moralising or preaching. Some people seem to dislike this film due to it's religious overtones, but to be honest these are pretty slight and are relevant to the story. All in all this was an enjoyable film and if `The Road' put you off post apocalyptic films, but the premise still intrigues you, then this is well worth a viewing.
