The Book Of Eli Movie Soundtrack Download
Welcome to another edition of Adam's Reviews!! **queue in intro music**"Cursed be the ground for our sake. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for us. For out of the ground we were taken, for the dust we are... and to the dust we shall return."Today movie review is the science-fiction post-apocalyptic flick The Book of Eli (2010) starring my man Denzel Washington who plays a lone traveller wandering the wasteland of America that may be result of a nuclear war years earlier. We are introduced to a bleak, plain and glaring landscape with a few abandoned cars, broken highways, a chaotic society where food and water are scarce which can be purchased through trade of whatever you may carry - for example wet wipes. The lone character is heading west and is on a mission. He is seeking the fulfilment of his mission given to him by God by protecting the only surviving King James Bible.The lone man comes across a town where it is run by a power hungry man, Carnegie, played by Gary Oldman, who rules the town with the use of fear and rationing the drinkable water. Carnegie is determined to rise above everyone and expand his authority, however he needs a useful instrument or in this case a book. When he finds out the lone man has the book he will do anything to take the book for his own personal use.The lone man's name is unknown until the very end, hence using the word lone man. This movie has heaps of biblical references, not including quoting scripture and teaching the new generation on how to pray and how he heard the voice of God. The story of a lone man's difficult journey must rely on his faith in order to protect the words of God through the Bible seemed farfetched however the movie exceeded in the storytelling by making it entertaining and simple with the main theme of this movie is even though in a world where compassion is secondary to survival and self-interest, one man's journey and mission overcomes these challengers due to having faith and believing in one's self. Even amidst a bleak life, one can rise and accomplish anything. The Kali style fight sequences, where the lone man has quick hands with literally his hands, knifes and machete are awesome, in particular the fight scene in the tunnel and in the bar where it may be dark however the illuminated backdrop gives the scene a visual striking - just feels like it's from a comic book. The movie literally gripped my attention from the lone man listening to old school jams through the use of his iPod, to the old cannibal couple towards the end playing "Ring My Bell" by using a phonograph and how the filmmakers used a Western style in the movie; where a lone man comes into town and confront the local badass.Great performance by Washington who carries the film as the man who is fixed in his sole mission from God and the idea that without knowledge and culture we are reduced to nothing but savages. The middle part of the movie did drain a little, not sure what happened but the pace felt it paused until crossing path with the old mad couple. The final 10 minutes of the film blew me away, an awesome twist which I did not see coming, it felt like a sucker punch and was like woahhhhhh whattttt!!! Any movie that provide that level of entertainment is definitely worth the watch, overall 7.5/10.

In a post-apocalyptic desolate world, Eli (Denzel Washington) is traveling west in the bandit-filled wastelands with his book. Water is scarce. He arrives at a town run by the ruthless Carnegie (Gary Oldman). He sends his men out to find books. He's looking for a particular book and he burns the rest. Eli impresses Carnegie after he takes on his gang. Carnegie sends Solara (Mila Kunis) to entice him to stay. She sees Eli's book and Carnegie finds out. It's the book that Carnegie has been looking for all these years.The world is compelling but it's a little unreal. Realism isn't really the point. It's a cross between a western, a biker gang movie, and Mad Max. The Hughes Brothers bring a violent graphic novel style to this. It's a lot of dust. Denzel Washington is solid as usual in his intensity. Mila Kunis is OK. Gary Oldman is a great bad buy. The central point of the movie is interesting but it doesn't work completely. The ending has an extra layer of shocking twist more than 'Fahrenheit 451' ending. It turns the movie upside down and makes it an even more interesting proposition.
