My movie reviewers Laney response to The Book of Eli:
I know it seems pretty harsh considering I’m neither for nor against any type of movie. However, after watching this I find myself wondering why I didn’t watch it online. It wasn’t a bad movie on the part of the action (whenever there was action) and the idea the Hughes Brothers was going for original but it kind of fell through. The acting I felt was good you could believe some of the characters. What really did the movie in was the story. It was full of too many holes for me. It left you asking questions and not in a good way. When I leave a movie I don’t want to be left asking questions that should have been provided. For example, when did the blast happen? I mean you know that obviously it didn’t happen in the 90’s since there where Dre headphones. (Might I add that looked a little to clean to be from the end of the world headphones) They never answered when it all happened except to say 30 years ago. Thanks that’s really helpful. At least in Resident Evil movies you get a better understanding of what year it happened and why it happened. My post for this movie will be short b/c the movie for me was short lived. I’m proud that my boyfriend didn’t fall asleep so that must have meant there was something to at least keep your action but if you’re expecting more don’t. Expect to see the movie get to see Denzel kick some major but and take names. Expect to see people going crazy to get a Bible. Expect to see how the world could be. BUT do not expect to leave the theaters truly happy….so in all bootleg it.
