The Book of Eli

Today I will be sharing a couple of reviews. This morning will be this movie "The book of Eli" and this evening I will share about a book I have read.

First, I want to share a couple of links I was given from Karen Kingsbury's site about the movie.

This one shares a bit on Denzel and how he was so protective of the movie


This next link is in regards to the "R" rating and the language in the movie


So, as for my review ~ What I would share first and foremost is that it truly is an "R" rated movie. The Language is BAD and you don't see any nudity. That said, it is a VERY INTENSE movie with alot of killing and I mean alot. But, the storyline is something that speaks volumes. If you can handle the killing and blood then you will want to see this movie, but if you get nauseated at the sight of blood and gore then DO NOT GO! It is along the lines of Mel Gibsons "The patriot" without the Romance.
Again, though, the story shared with us a determination to Run this Race the Lord gives us until we have completed the task.










Just my humble opinion,

Wow Loren, it looks intense! But this is a movie I know my husband would love to see; lots of action. I only heard about it recently but I love Denzel Washington as an actor. I'll check out your links. Thanks.

I really like Denzel Washington but I don't think this movie would be for me. Thanks for the review.

Oh Loren I am glad to hear what you thought about that movie. Blood and guts are not my fav's, but I had a feeling the story line would be good. Thanks for the head's up. Have a good day. = ) Debbie

Loren,

My nephew saw this movie and said he loved it! He especially loved the tie in with the Bible and said it was definitely well worth sitting through the violence because of the underlying message.

I think you did a great review of this movie and one that Steve and I will check out without our kids!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Thanks for the review! Blood and guts is normally not what I like, but you have me interested.

Thanks for the awesome review.

Sassy Granny ...

Great thoughts. As much as I like Denzel Washington, it's definitely a movie that's not on my "must see" list.

Here's another resource for movie reviews. It's Focus on the Family's site, and they're typically pretty fair & realistic: http://www.pluggedin.com/movies.aspx

I love Denzel. I think he is a wonderful actor. I will have to ask hubs if he wants to go see this movie. I hate the language though. Why do they always have to cuss?
