O que se diz lá fora sobre THE BOOK OF ELI, de Albert Hughes e Allen Hughes:
«I'm at a loss for words, so let me say these right away: THE BOOK OF ELI is very watchable. You won't be sorry you went.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«Iconically effective as a single-minded messenger with a mission, Washington's Eli is ultimately too confined by the man-of-few-words movie norms he's saddled with.»
Todd McCarthy, Variety.
«A well-made post-apocalyptic action drama with simple themes and archetypal characters that strains a little too much at Seriousness.»
Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter.
«A ponderous dystopian bummer that might be described as THE ROAD WARRIOR without car chases, or THE ROAD without humanity.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«The Hugheses have created a plausible post-apocalyptic world, one that draws from the western (Hollywood, Sergio Leone) and the tradition of science-fiction dystopia.»
Manohla Dargis, New York Times.
