A war, over thirty years ago, killed off many people in the United States. Others were blinded from the blast. This creates an interesting disparity between those over thirty years of age who received an education and those under thirty who know nothing of the modern world (at one point, one of the thugs asks, "What's a television?").
This is an unpleasant world. Cannibalistic brigands ambush unwary travelers, identifiable by their shaking hands. Water is at a premium. Batteries are hard to find. The Book of Eli makes it clear that there's no currency, only barter.
Roaming the land is Eli (a subdued Denzel Washington), carrying a book with a cross on it. This book is greatly desired by Carnegie (a greasy Gary Oldman), who is also old enough to remember the power such a tome can have over the people. While Eli has been wandering for thirty years in pursuit of such a destination, Carnegie has been sending illiterate henchmen to retrieve every book he can find. The encounter between the two has all the fire and brimstone of a battle between heaven and hell.
Thrown into the mix is Solara (played beautifully by Mila Kunis, who finally sheds her trademark accent), a young, attractive girl who has grown up under Carnegie's protection but, as she flowers into womanhood, is about to become a bargaining chip, a piece of meat, and a lure. When there's no one left to protect her, she becomes a wanderer in Eli's footsteps.
From a religious point of view, it's educational to understand who Eli was in the Bible.Read more ›
The world is in shambles. There's no law for the most part. Raiders are everywhere, looting, raping and eating people that pass by. Clean water and food is tough to find. Of course it's a rough life. Most people wouldn't think much of it, but imagine your life as you know it right now taking a turn for the worst, and you no longer have any luxuries- you're a scavenger from now on. That's the world Eli lives in. Eli is on a mission, and tries to stay on the path, as he puts it, and needs to go to a specific location to deliver an important book that no one else is allowed to see or read. At the same time, the ability to read has been lost over the years, and very few people are able to do so. Eli is one, and the other is a corrupt man, Carnegie, who runs a town that Eli enters one day to charge his iPod and haggle with the shop owner.Read more ›

|Is Amazon still selling the combo pack?||
I noticed this with Clash of the Titans (2010) as well. Both of these movies had the price drop to $14.99 but it looks like they lost the DVD + Digital Copy in the process. Can anyone confirm?

Continuing along in Spoiler Land:
Though I agree with the KFC wipe bit, you all do understand that even from the title of the movie, this is intended to echo the stories in the Bible, correct? The title refers both to the physical book that Eli carries, as well as the story as though it were... Read More

|Digital Copy Expires June 13th, 2011||
I purchased this along with the Bloodsport/Timecop BD and I did not receive it with the slipcover. Nor did either disc come with a sticker seal. Do all eco cases come without the seal? It was wrapped in the factory plastic (instead of shrink wrap), but had no seal on top. I even opened the... Read More

From the number of 5-star reviews, I'll say Plot A is being made.
