Reviews:
"[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." - 01/10/2010 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..." - 01/14/2010 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." - 01/13/2010 Chicago Sun-Times


"A lean, stark, surprisingly effective headliner in Hollywood's ongoing apoc-a-pala-looza." - 01/15/2010 Los Angeles Times


"An attractively grizzled Denzel Washington plays the enigmatic Eli, a true believer with quasi-mystical fighting skills..." - 01/18/2010 USA Today


"[Washington] beautifully inhabits the film's titular hero, a laconic, solitary gunslinger who's also a custodian of a mysterious tome..." - 01/15/2010 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'..." - 01/10/2010 Variety


"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: B - 01/14/2010 A.V. Club


"[A]mong films about material scarcity, religion and power, it compares favourably with THERE WILL BE BLOOD." - 03/01/2010 Sight and Sound


"The real draw is the spaghetti western homages, Tom Waits bartering goods and hand grenades being 10-pin bowled under trucks." - 05/24/2010 Total Film
