Book Of Eli

I went watching The Book Of Eli a few days ago with the visitors from Germany. I had no expectation as I did not know much about the movie. The movie plays in a post-apocalyptic world, somewhat like Max Max, but more depressive, and less over the top. The movie could play in a Fallout 3 world - only low saturation colors, mainly gray. Eli (Denzel Washington) has the job to bring the book "to the west" and finds all kind of resistance and obstacles, specifically from Carnegie (Gary Oldman). The story goes into some level of supernatural, is far fetched, and at times tends to show a lot violence. But it was never boring or had length, so it is OK to see. Other noteworthy cast members include Jennifer Bales, Tom Waits, Mila Kunis and Malcolm McDowell.
