Movie: The Book of Eli (2010)

Some will kill to have it. He will kill to protect it.

BELIEVE

"The Book of Eli" is set in the post-apocalyptic era, approximately 30 years after the occurence of a possible nuclear war. Eli (Denzel Washington) is traveling on foot and alone to the West (of America). He avoids trouble all the way during his journey till he reaches a rundown town ran by Carnegie (Gary Oldman) and his cronies. Well, Carnegie's the bad guy here because he insists on seizing The Book from Eli's possession by hook or by crook.

I won't provide spoilers here. I better not. However, do expect heavy doses of blood, violence, and religion. I was so stunned when I realized that The Book actually refers to the Bible. Certain conversation liners are verses quoted directly from the Bible. E.g. Walk by faith, not by sight. This is a famous verse from 2 Corinthians.

Overall, the storyline is brilliant despite the entire movie's horrible, sorry, and sombre setting. Well, it's post-apocalyptic, you can't expect much, can you? Haha.

Moral of the story? I guess it's as simple as God exists. No matter how terrible mankind has fallen, they will, in one way or another, turn back to God, even if it involves committing cardinal sin as a mode of protection. I guess that's why there are extremists around the world.

So, is this a recommended movie? YES, unless you're an atheist and you don't want to believe that God exists. :)

  1. I like the reference of how 'The Book' may have been what sparked the war. Jihad anyone? What i didn't like was how the Koran survived in the 'library' and not 'The Book'

  2. LOL. Maybe the Koran didn't survive as well and somebody has brought it to be printed. But this movie chooses to focus on the journey of reviving "The Book". More meaningful perhaps.
