Taylott's review of The Book of Eli

“If you can't get enough of this post apocalyptic...”


written by Taylott on 24/08/2010

If you can't get enough of this post apocalyptic stuff,'The Book of Eli' isn't a bad addition to the genre.

Coming hot on the heels of The Road, Eli is a far more conventional and formulaic vision of future hell.

Though The Book of Eli devolves into a very basic series of pitched battles between the good and evil adversaries, the film does exert a tight grip on the viewer.

Directors Allen and Albert Hughes stage some impressive set-pieces, including intricately choreographed fights and a stunning shoot-out covered by a single rotating camera.

I actually really quite enjoyed this movie. It didn't turn out to be a blockbuster, but nor was I expecting it too. Pretty good story, and nice little twist at the end. I for one didn't see it coming.
