The Book of Eli
This old-time futuristic western is set in America, thirty years after most of the people had been wiped out. A lone man is travelling across America, carrying with him the last remaining copy of the King James bible. He arrives in a small town, and in true Western style immediately falls foul of the local bigshot baddie. Things get complicated when baddie's daughter decides to hang around with the stranger, leading to the showdown where she and him have to battle off dad and his disposable henchmen.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconI'm at a loss for words, so let me say these right away: The Book of Eli is very watchable. You won't be sorry you went. It grips your attention, and then at the end throws in several WTF! Moments, which are a bonus.

Peter Travers quote iconThe Book of Eli isn't as exciting or funny or inspiring as it wants and needs to be, and its preachy ending is an ordeal.
C. Fuchs quote iconFairly engaging and decidedly pro-religion

Tomatometer quote icon It's certainly uneven, and many viewers will find that its reach exceeds its grasp, but The Book of Eli finds the Hughes brothers injecting some fresh stylish fun into the kind of post-apocalyptic wasteland filmgoers have seen more than enough of lately.
