  Excelent

Brilliant film with some quite cunning plot developments.
You should own this as it is still entertaining the 2nd time even though you know what is going to happen!

  Ha ha - what a load of drivel

| | See all Treefrogmeister's reviews (1)

In short this film is absolute nonsense, with a completely incredulous plot twist. I can see how some people find it enjoyable, and you may well do, until the end when you can see clearly, and realise, you've been duped. Bible bashing balony if you ask me.

  Washington is superb

| | See all BikerScout's reviews (89)

I went into this knowing nothing about the plot, having not read any reviews beforehand. All I knew was that it starred Denzel Washington & Gary Oldman - two of my favourite actors.

Stylistically, it's a blend of all the *good* things from Mad Max, Terminator Salvation & Waterworld and whilst the pacing will perhaps be frustratingly slow for some, for me it totally worked.

The date in which the film is set is never given, and details of past events are only hinted at. The focus is all on Washington's character and his journey.

As a fan of Bladerunner & The Fountain, I liked this a lot.

  What a steal!

| | See all wiggie104's reviews (1)

This is quite simply a great film! Ignore the biblical undertones (if you want) but this is a great post apocalyptic movie. Denzel knocks it out of the park with his usual high standard acting, and the story really does drag you in from start to finish!! Biggest plus....the price....for a great film in Blu-ray!! Perfick!

  INCREDIBLE FILM

| | See all littlecars's reviews (5)

Best film I have seen in years. I cannot remember the last time I sat through all the end titles of a film but I was staring at the screen until the menu reappeared as if in a trance. Truly captured my imagination and turned all of my religious beliefs upside down. Cast are magnificent and the location is spellbinding. The soundtrack was so perfectly aligned to the film and It seemed to disapear at times yet amplified the whole experience. Denzil Washington is just so convincing in this role and I could not recommend this film more.

  Good but not great

| | See all IRN1BRU's reviews (2)

Love this genre but perhaps due to my high expectations of this film I was left a little underwhelmed. No denying the atmosphere was great , with a wonderfully moody environment. Similarly the acting of the ever consistent Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman is impressive. Despite this the storyline is too predictable and the twist can be seen a mile away. As such it does nothing to lift it out of the 'norm'. Worth a watch but not a movie I can see myself returning too.

  Great Survival Film!

| | See all Nathan444's reviews (274)

This for me was a very enjoyable film. If like me you like postapocalyptic stuff,'The Book of Eli' is definately a film for you.

Obviously if you dont like this sort of fim then dont go for this.

Very good twists, action packed and thoroughly watchable.

Recommend 4/5

  FANTASTIC

| | See all fletch2069's reviews (2)

Absolutely fantastic Post-Apocalyptic drama from Denzel Washington with the beautiful Mila Kunis to ease the the horrors of a world in ruin.

Fantastic plot with a great surprise. Gary Oldman is great as always, Denzel Washington is always solid and is convincing in the fight scenes despite his age. Great stuff

  Awseome action film with a good Christian message

| | See all SiScott's reviews (98)

Before I say anything else, yes I'm a Christian and yes that perhaps makes me bias here. The fact is, if you are easily offended by anything with a religious edge to it, then give this a miss.

This film has a blatently pro-Christian, bible message to it and about how society needs the word of God to survive. If that is going to frustrate you... its maybe not for you.

Religion aside, you also have a good action flick, with nice fight scenes and some impressive CGI and slick camera work. Although at times, you feel like you are watching an MTV music video, but thats forgiveable.

But anyway... religion, the bible and christianity are at the forefront of this film and I would say it does a good job of promoting God and showing that while some people will abuse his word, others are simply out to make the world better.
