The Book Of Eli Torent Iso

A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving. If you never saw the trailer to THE BOOK OF ELI, do so. It's a great trailer: the action, the cinematography, the intensity the promise. In those. The top 10 most downloaded movies on BitTorrent, 'Green Zone' tops the chart this week The data for our weekly download chart is collected by TorrentFreak, and is for informational and 6, (5), The Book of Eli, / trailer.

I know I was. But what that mission is took a while to discover. Actually, it took over an hour to realize. And so, like endless hero movies go, Denzel is a man of peace and yet, can kick some serious ass. Due to the similar age of both actors, Denzel and Oldman, we soon found out that a world war took place 30 years ago, characters who survived the war and could still read. Hence, they treasured the book. There were a few entertaining scenes that took a bit of choreography to make Denzel look like he was Steven Segal and knew his way around a designer machete. Everyone just seemed to be in this movie. There were no stakes, no purpose, no point to this movie, and to life. People in a post world-war environment are damaged, condemned, and bleak. And so the picture was painted this way, and all to lead us to this compelling conclusion: there is a way out, a way to salvation. And that would be the Bible. Early in the movie, books were brought to Carnegie by these nomadic mercenaries. Literary books that educated and entertained.

It doesn't try too hard to hide just what exactly the book is and that sort of dissolves some of the film's mystique. The plot is essentially Eli wants to protect it and take it west and he has a run in with Carnegie Gary Oldman , an older man who runs a small town and desires it for selfish power-related reasons. Along the way, anyone who threatens to lay a hand on Eli gets sliced up or shot.

In the two or three fight scenes where he takes down numerous guys at once, you can't help but wonder why after he kills the first few guys, the others don't run the hell away, especially considering people are otherwise in self-preservation mode living in a wasteland and they know nothing of the book.

The Hughes brothers make those scenes worthwhile, however. There's a style and grace to their action scenes -- they create a sort of a moving tableau in some scenes and execute a wide range of tempos in the action sequences to make them more intense.

The Book of Eli

When Carnegie's men encounter Eli and the young woman Mila Kunis that he inspires who follows him at the home of some old folks cameos by famous Brits Frances De La Tour and Michael Gambon , they place the camera in the middle of the action and sweep along with the gunfire part- digitally from one side to the other.

It's very cool and is an example of one way the Hugheses keep the focus away from the plot's shaky skeleton. I only have beef with their excessive slow-motion walking-toward-the-camera shots and showing a bit too much of the cloudy green-gray sky. Some people are going to be more surprised and impressed with the film's big reveal than others, but anyone with a love of action and that post-apocalyptic context will find something to make "Eli" a worthwhile watch regardless of plot weakness.

Washington is slightly under-utilized but he's an ideal fit. He brings an intensity in his demeanor that makes him an intriguing character and the film does a good job of making his character more central than anything else.

If you are looking for a film with some deeper meaning then I would not recommend it. However, if you are looking for a film with beautiful cinematography, solid acting and a little bit of fun action then you will be pleased. The key in watching the film is to not download into the plot too much, which is where the viewer is going to be disappointed. The ending is a little far fetched and I couldn't help but roll my eyes.

Although I honestly don't see a particularly good ending for the basic premise of the film.

If you are able to put the silliness with the story behind you, the film is wonderfully done. There is great camera work with interesting angles and framing; the set showcases the contrast between the stark light of the sun and the shadows where humankind is hiding; and the acting makes you want to download into the characters and their conflicts.

I would recommend seeing the film, just don't get too involved with the story. Instead concentrate on the acting and the scene. And maybe Oprah. If not, the church should provide the people who made this movie with free blessings for a year - or whatever. This movie uses misleading advertising to draw us in.

What we expect is an apocalyptic thriller with a super strong survivor trying to make his way through life. We know from the advertising that he has a book he must protect - but we are not told that it is a bible.

The last bible.

And then the propaganda begins. Despite Eli's best efforts, his friend and the villains become aware that he has a bible.

The villain wants the bible to begin a cult in his own name, Eli wants the bible because a voice told him to go to a place where the book was, and then, vaguely, to go west. He reads it every day.

The premise of the film is that he followed the voices instructions, found the book, and has been walking west for the past 30 years. If that is your thing enjoy. My feeling on it was that the acting was not bad, the feel established by the cinematography for the movie was good but overall this film was a transparent vehicle for religious cheer leading and not much more.

Being a fan of the genre, one must get used to the repetitive "lone wanderer" theme so prominently used. I figured this film would go through the same formula, but prepared to enjoy myself.

Yes it did use the lone wanderer as a driving plot device, and yes it did bring the arbitrary twist. Yes all the survivors are short on t-shirts, but live in a wealth of leather and goggles. Yes everything in this film looks like and feels like a typical post-apocalyptia.

But the substance of the story is far more powerful then I could ever have expected. Without giving away too much, yes the film is essentially a Christian metaphor. Would someone explain how he got out of the locked room I missed that part? When Solara causes the vehicle she's in to crash how does Eli's blade which was on the dashboard get embedded completely to the hilt in Redridge's chest?

Is the woman hijacker with the grocery cart the same as the second one nearer to the end of the movie?

If so how does she get a new gang since Eli has killed all of her first friends and get further down the road towards Alcatraz for Solara and Eli to meet again? To have the same ambush using a woman crying with a grocery cart seems lazy to me. I'm glad for those who enjoyed the movie. It just has too many questionable and unbelievable scenes which caused my frustration.

And I wish people would stop comparing this sham of a movie to 'The Road'. So originality is not exactly "Eli's" calling card, but it clearly establishes its ruinous world and the Hughes brothers "From Hell" take good care of its characters while supplying top-notch action.

Washington stars as our stolid protagonist, Eli, journeying westward with his canteen, a large machete, a couple guns and a special leather-bound book.

Beware The Book Of Eli

He lives on an Earth that was fried 30 years before by the sun because of a war that ripped a hole through the ozone layer. Sun-goggled bikers run amok pillaging, killing and raping passers-by, yet Eli is morally sound and focused on keeping his book safe no matter what so he can deliver it somewhere out west.

Whitta also places Eli squarely in the story. He's a good but dangerous man who's not afraid to kill, and as he sits idly by as a couple gets attacked, it's abundantly clear that this is a world where compassion is secondary to survival and self-interest.

Where the plot comes in is "Eli's" weak link. It doesn't try too hard to hide just what exactly the book is and that sort of dissolves some of the film's mystique. The plot is essentially Eli wants to protect it and take it west and he has a run in with Carnegie Gary Oldman , an older man who runs a small town and desires it for selfish power-related reasons.
