I was absolutely amazed at how well done this movie was. Denzel Washington was BRILLIANT in this movie. He isn't in that many movies, but when he is, you know it'll be great! The Book of Eli is like a movie I've never seen before. I think some people are a little harsh on this movie, they say it's too violent. Well, the truth is, yes, it is quite violent at some parts. Such as: a mans hand gets chopped off, and it is quite disturbing, Eli is constantly fighting with people, and you see blood flying and such - But, it is all REALISTIC violence. Because if something like this happened (where most of the world got destroyed), I belive that this would happen! So, yes the violence is quite violent, but it's nothing that a mature teenager can't handle, and I believe that teenagers should watch this movie - It gives you a lot to think about. So to sum it all up, I would give this 5 stars, and would HIGHLY recommend this to people who love interesting story lines, and who like to think about what they just learned in the movie.
