Movie Review: Book of Eli 2 Stars

If you want to see yet another post apocalyptic movie with medium writing, this is the movie for you.  Denzel Washington is Eli, a sojourner heading west with the last copy of the Bible known on Earth.  He meets evil villans and folky nice people.  There is blowing up and gun play.  Eli repairs a point-blank gut shot on his tummy with duct tape and continues on his journey.  Cute girl/woman becomes enamored with him although he is too gentlemanly to do anything about it.  Movie ends with an interesting twist. 

I did like a couple scenes very well.  Eli feeds a piece of roasted cat he is eating to a curious mouse.  I liked the duct tape surgery scene.  Other than that, I would say wait for the video.  It is an OK movie, but not great.  2*/5*
