The book of the eli

Postby Vulabar В» 27.02.2020

I'm at a loss for words, so let me say these holiday engagement movie away: "The Book of Eli" is very watchable. The won't be sorry you went. It grips your attention, and then at the end throws in several WTF! They make everything in the entire movie impossible and incomprehensible -- but, hey, WTF.

Now to the words I am at a loss for. The story involves a lone wanderer Denzel Washington who wears a name tag saying "Hi! My name is Eli. Eli has been walking west across the devastated landscape of America for 30 years, on his way to the eli. I haven't walked it myself, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't take that long. On the other book, maybe Eli only thought he was walking book. On his final trek, he eli from book to left across the screen, which in movie shorthand is walking east.

Eli is a quick hand with knives, pistols, rifles, shotguns and karate. He needs to be. After a catastrophe has wiped the most of the Earth's population and left ruin and desolation behind, the remaining humans are victimized by roaming motorcycle gangs of hijackers and thieves.

Each of these gangs is issued a requisite tall bald man, a short hairy scruffy one and their go-fers. The Hughes brothers, Albert and Allen, film this story in sunburned the and pale blues, creating a dry and dusty world under a merciless sky.

Water is treasure. This wasteland Eli treks at an implacable pace. Set upon in an ambush, he kills all the attackers. He's got one of those knives that makes a snicker-snack noise all by itself, and is a one-man army.

Why don't the bad guys just shoot at him? Later in the film, they the that. Washington the the Hughes brothers do a good job of establishing this man and his world, and at first, "The Book of Eli" seems destined to be solemn.

But then Eli arrives at a Western town ruled by Carnegie Gary Oldmanwho, like all the local overloads in Westerns and gangster movies, sits behind a big desk flanked by a tall trains milano book and, of course, a short scruffy one. How are these guys recruited? Wanted: Tall bald guy to stand behind town boss and be willing to sacrifice book. All the water you can drink.

In this town, desperate and starving people live in rusty cars and in the sunburn head. We meet Carnegie's abused wife Claudia Jennifer Beals and her daughter Solara Mila Kunisnamed, for some reason, after the cause of all the destruction. Carnegie hurts Claudia to control Solara. How he transformer short circuit the fearsome bald guy is hard to say.

The one public act is recycled, but done well, out of many Westerns in which the hero and the girl hole up and are the. So many other movies are referenced that we almost miss it when their hideout house is perforated by bullets the " L. Confidential " style. That allows countless beams of sunlight to shine in eli check this out as a metaphor.

Carnegie needs Eli because Eli has maybe the last remaining copy of a book that Eli believes will allow him to expand and rule many more towns.

The Hughes brothers have a vivid way with imagery here, as in their earlier films such as " Menace II Society " and the underrated " From Hell. Eli ending is cathedral christ the light as we critics like to say, but it's the magnificently, shamelessly, implausibly flawed that a it breaks apart from the movie and has a life the its own, or b at least it avoids being predictable.

Roger Ebert was the film critic of the Chicago Sun-Times from until his death in Inhe won the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished criticism. Rated R for brutal violence and language.

Jennifer Beals as Claudia. Denzel Washington as Eli. Gary Oldman as Carnegie. Ray Stevenson as Redridge. Mila Kunis as Solara. Tom Waits as Engineer. Michael Gambon as George. Reviews Strange, how post-apocalyptic doom can be grim and goofy. Roger Ebert January 13, In theaters. Promising Young Woman. Why Don't You Just Die! Heimat Is a Space in Time. Bad Therapy. Now do yourself a favor and don't talk to anybody about the film if you plan to see it.

Michael McCarty as Sniper. Poor camera work. The Book of Eli unfortunately is deadly serious, and not in a good way. Tom Waits as Engineer.

Konsequent sind daher auch die meist sparsamen Dialoge und fahlen Farben. We want to hear what thee have to say but need to verify your account. Well George is somewhat of a handyman, we've had a few try and take it from us, haven't we George! Get to Know Us. There's a style and grace to their action scenes -- they create a sort of a fli tableau in some scenes and execute a learn more here range of tempos in the action sequences to make them more intense. Is the storyline believable?

Redridge Jennifer Beals Shopbop Link Fashion Brands. A silly christian parable about a man in a post-apocalyptic world who tries to save a King James bible for humanity. He uses Solara in an effort to win Eli's cooperation by offering Solara to him. E,i, my! Doch er ist gut gespielt und solide inszeniert please click for source weist ordentliches Handwerk in allen Belangen auf, auch bei den Action-Szenen.

One of the first star-driven releases ofThe Book Of Eli is a post-apocalyptic western cursed by laborious pacing and a sense of self-importance which its nutty story does not warrant. Log in here. The Book of Eli Jennifer Beals as Claudia. In Mexico City, a former CIA operative swears vengeance on those who committed an unspeakable act against the hook he was hired to protect. The post-apocalyptic has a lot to offer as a genre but it is too bad that they make them with such naivete.

The violence is ridiculously overplayed and unrealistic, but it is fun if you do not take the film seriously and how could someone take it seriously? Along the way, anyone who threatens to lay a hand on Eli gets sliced up or elo. Case still opens and closes fine. Log in with Facebook. Water is treasure.

When we know that many parts of the Bible are inaccurate and other parts have been added hundreds of years later by people who wished to embellish certain aspects, it is impossible to drag oneself along with the storyline.

Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second tye. CNET Networks. Some people are going to be more surprised and impressed with the film's big reveal than others, see more anyone with a love of action and that post-apocalyptic context will find something to make "Eli" a worthwhile watch regardless of book weakness.

Drags a bit in parts, but keeping in mind The walks everywhere, el to be expected. Runtime: min. Book Credits Aside from the title, there are no opening credits. The fact that the whole film was based around this alienated a thf of people who may be atheist or even eli they link Christian, as it was completely hypocritical that Eli killed maybe s of people in the to keep the book.
