I didn't think it would happen so quickly, but I'm here to tell you that it's (temporarily) safe to return to the cinema.
The Book of Eli is very slowly paced; they spend a lot of time walking. It is clearly a western in style but also has a touch of action, science-fiction and faith-based drama. Denzel Washington plays a man who has been traveling west across what was once America prior to a war that ended 30 years ago. To tell you anything else would give away more than I should and since the marketing plan for the movie didn't include any further details, I won't spoil it for you.
I really liked this movie. To say that it's the best movie of the year wouldn't be saying much since I've only seen three so far and one of them was Leap Year; suffice it to say that The Book of Eli will most likely remain in my top 10 movies of the year... at least until mid-summer.
