the book of eli

deanna and i went to see the book of eli tonight at the movies. and not because we have a little terror named eli. i'm always intrigued by apocalyptic movies, and denzel is a favorite of mine, so it seemed like a no brainer to me.

we saw it, and it was good.

it's rather dark and violent, perhaps too violent, but it's also very powerful. denzel is the perfect man for the part. i could watch the first confrontational scene over and over again. maybe i will when the dvd comes out. i really liked jennifer beals character, especially at the end. gary oldman plays the perfectly believable bad guy. he must be a bad guy in real life, because he plays one so well in all the movies that he's cast in.

i'd pay to see it again, i think.
