"[A]n intense, surprisingly serious study of a man making his way through a wilderness of catastrophic destruction and human cruelty like a latter-day prophet."Hollywood Reporter 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Directing team The Hughes Brothers have chosen ELI as their first film in nearly a decade and though it certainly delivers all the fireworks you might come to expect from their earlier work, its religious undertones separate it from the pack..."Box Office "The Hughes brothers have a vivid way with imagery here, as in their earlier films....The film looks and feels good, and Washington's performance is the more uncanny the more we think back over it."Chicago Sun-Times "A lean, stark, surprisingly effective headliner in Hollywood's ongoing apoc-a-pala-looza."Los Angeles Times "An attractively grizzled Denzel Washington plays the enigmatic Eli, a true believer with quasi-mystical fighting skills..."USA Today "[Washington] beautifully inhabits the film's titular hero, a laconic, solitary gunslinger who's also a custodian of a mysterious tome..."Washington Post "One of the clever conceits of the script by first-time Gary Whitta is that there are only a handful of people still alive who remember how things were 'before'..."Variety "[A]n intense, surprisingly serious study of a man making his way through a wilderness of catastrophic destruction and human cruelty like a latter-day prophet."Hollywood Reporter "THE BOOK OF ELI takes the form of an ultra-violent graphic novel, with Washington as a steely Man With No Name type who cuts a righteous path through the gullets of sinners and savages." -- Grade: BA.V.
