Book of EliSaw the Book of Eli on Saturday.

The matinee was pretty empty, just the way we like it.

I thought it was a pretty good movie, but hard to rate.

If you are looking for lots of action, I would give it a 6 (lots of quiet parts in between)
If you are looking for Sci Fi I would also give it about a 6 (not really sci fi, just post-apocalyptic)

Over all I would give the movie a 7 for the story, setting and acting, interesting but not overly unique.

There is some graphic violence but it's not overly gory.

My boyfriend saw it yesterday and he liked it a lot. I wasn't really in the mood for that kind of movie so I opted out... maybe I'll have to see it.

The gore was pretty interesting because it was mostly in shadows unless it was by gun and in that case it was mostly "oh I fell" so when the shit hit the fan you'd see limbs flying but it wasn't to the degree of desensitization.

I think Eli is going to be the next 6th Sense. Pretty awesome/unexpected twist at the end.

Sounds like you weren't overly impressed.

Well, I'm not sure if I'll buy it on DVD or not.

So maybe you can settle a bet with a friend... Where do they get the title from? Is the guy named Eli or is it like a forgotten book of the Bible?

In the movie the main character answers to Eli,
but there's a scene where you get a look inside his knapsack and you see a sticker that says,
"Hello, My name is Eli"
So, either his name is Eli, or he just took the name.
He later says he has a King James Version of the Bible and after starts quoting Genesis.
So it is definately not a forgotten book/chapter of the Bible.
