THE BOOK OF ELI is set 30 years in the future where a major war has left few people behind and a lot of environmental changes. The main character is Eli (Denzel Washington), who is on a mission of hope and is protecting a special book that is said to offer its owner large amounts of power to guide, lead, control, and manipulate with it.
Eli and Solara are rowing across the shallow waters of the Pacific Ocean to Alcatraz Island. On reaching the island, Eli tells the guards that he has an intact King James Bible. Back at Carnegie's office in his town, an engineer is carefully trying to pick the lock on the book Carnegie wrested from Eli. Eli says his bible is 'beat up, but will do the job.'
Back at Carnegie's office, the engineer finally manages to trigger the lock and open the book taken from Eli. Eli has Lombardi's people bring Lombardi large stacks of paper and begins to recite the Bible from memory, having memorized it over thirty years of re-reading. Carnegie has Claudia brought to his office to read the Braille bible. Claudia knows that Solara hasn't returned and blames Carnegie.
As Eli's prayer continues, we see the Alcatraz printing press making a freshly prepared hardcover print copy of the completed King James Bible, and we see Solara kneeling over Eli's grave, showing he has finally died from his injuries. We see Solara stepping out of the gates of the Alcatraz compound as Eli's voiceover prayer thanks God for Solara's friendship, and for God to watch over her as He has watched over Eli himself. We see Solara sheathe Eli's machete over her shoulder, and plug the earphones to his iPod into her ears.(by Adam Dwyne - abcdMOVIE)
What’s cool in the movie: To see money is not worth anymore, Trade things with somethings, cool! We like the idea
What’s not cool in the movie: We think this film is one of the lowest budget because Danzel most of the time walking not driving anything so it less consume gasoline.
Do you know that word Eli is come from words bELIeve, dELIver and rELIgion...
