The Book of Eli

SOME WILL KILL TO HAVE IT. HE WILL KILL TO PROTECT IT. 

Some time after a nuclear catastrophe, Eli (Denzel Washington) arrives in a small town run by Carnegie’s (Gary Oldman) vicious gang; when they learn that Eli has a very powerful book they do everything to grab it. The Hughes Brothers’ first movie in nine years has a surprise ‚Äď they’ve found religion. This post-apocalyptic thriller is a typical genre exercise, with a lone stranger whose journey we follow. Reminiscent of Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name, Washington is just as solid a hero as Oldman as a villain, but the movie as a whole is tepid.
