Trama del film:

In a violent post-apocalyptic society, a drifter, Eli, has been wandering westward across North America for the last thirty years. He finds solace in a unique book which he carries on his person and guards closely, whilst surviving by hunting small animals and seeking goods in destroyed houses and vehicles to trade in villages for water and supplies. When he reaches a village ruled by the powerful mobster, Carnegie, the man views Eli's impressive fighting skills and offers Eli a place within his gang. Carnegie presses his blind lover Claudia to send her daughter, Solara, to at least convince Eli to spend the night by sleeping with him. However, Eli proves to be the better man when he gently declines her advances. The girl sees Eli's book, and when Carnegie finds out he beats her mother until she reveals what she saw. Carnegie sends his gang into the wasteland to take the book from Eli, but the man proves to be a formidable foe as he makes it more than clear that if they want the book, they must first take his life. Written by Harry Jankel, London, England

    In a very short space of time two post-apocalyptic films have been
    release, the brilliant The Road which is aiming for Oscar glory, and
    the action packed The Book of Eli which is appealing for the mass

    30 years after a massive war which blow a hole in the sky, possibly a
    nuclear war, Eli (Denzel Washington) is a lone traveller heading to the
    West Coast of America. He is a skilled martial artist, armed with guns,
    a long knife and a bow and is carrying the last King James Bible. On
    the way he has to avoid and kill hijackers and cannibals. On his travel
    Eli has to stop off in a ramshackle of a town to buy water and recharge
    his gear. The town itself run on a barter economy. The leader of the
    town, Carnegie (Gary Oldman), was impressed by Eli's skill and even
    more impressed when he found out he can read. Carnegie offer's the
    traveller a place in his gang. But when Carnegie finds out Eli has the
    Bible he ends up searching for Eli. The Bible would give Carnegie the
    ideological based to strengthen his position and expand his power base.
    Eli goes on the run, hoping to go West and is joined by a young girl
    Solara (Mila Kunis). He teaches Solara about the Bible and religion and
    why it is important he goes west.

    The best thing about the film is the action. It was slick, stylist,
    well-edited and at times a fine long fixed shots. There are brilliant
    moments with the way the camera goes through buildings, and follows the
    action. The Hughes Brothers have good style as action directors, better
    then say Michael Bay or McG who throw everything at the camera.

    The story is not that original, there are elements of likes like Mad
    Max 2 and 3, The Road and the Man With No Name trilogy. But there are
    interesting ideas, the use of religion as political ideology, the use
    of religion as political control and showing both the good and bad
    sides of faith. Most films only show one side of the other: but this
    does both and I can praise it for that. I think given a bit of fine
    tuning then this could have been a really good script.

    As mentioned, the Hughes brothers have style as action directors, but
    they also filmed in a slightly washed out look, giving the film a more
    given a gritty, earthy feel. It doesn't camp it up like the third Max
    Mad film did. They pacing was good for the most part and allow you to
    get to the character as well as seeing the action. However some moments
    did drag the film and could have been sped up. Others just didn't fit,
    like the slightly comical scene with an elderly couple played by
    Frances de la Tour and Michael Gambon. 10 to 15 minutes could have been

    Denzel Washington is possibly one of the coolest actors in the world.
    He was well cast as the protagonist, and since the character is a bit
    older then usual action hero Washington was the right age for the film.
    Gary Oldman does his use villainous role he is normally good at, look
    at his roles in True Romance, Leon, the Fifth Element and Air Force
    One. He gives his character a young Jack Nicholoson quality, though my
    brother said he reminded him of Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New
    York. He was good as he normally is. However whilst Mila Kunis is easy
    on the eye, her performance was weak and wooden. She wasn't believable
    as a young girl looking for a way out and able to grow as a character.
    At least she has Family Guy to fall back on. Other smaller roles were
    also not as convincing as the lead roles.

    This was a decent film, but there was room for improvement.
