How can I say this lightly and with great diplomacy. The Book of Eli is the second worst movie I have seen in 2010. I am now thinking if The Road and The Book of Eli would have accidentally merged on film, we may, I say may have had an okay movie to see.
The movie was all wrong, tasteless and felt like a western more than anything else are some of the things that come to mind to describe the disaster of a film the Hughes brothers conjured up.
One thing I have to say, I am a huge fan of Denzel Washington and have the utmost respect for his work. The man is talented, handsome and wonderful to watch on screen; however, The Book Of Eli is the most damaging to his career. I know every celebrity has a movie or two that seem to take a bite out of their career and I am hopeful this was it for Mr. Washington and perhaps we can all put this behind us and move on to bigger and better things.
Pass, pass, pass or pay as I did to see others walk out in the middle of the film.
