Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The film looks and feels good, and Washington's performance is the more uncanny the more we think back over it. The ending is "flawed," as we critics like to say, but it's so magnificently, shamelessly, implausibly flawed that (a) it breaks apart from the movie and has a life of its own, or (b) at least it avoids being predictable.
Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
Its over-the-top violence is cartoonish at times, menacing at others - which is a good thing. And truly, if one must wander a barren, post-apocalyptic landscape with somebody, who better to wander with than Denzel Washington?
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
The problem with The Book of Eli is that the narrative isn't a match for its sentiments. The script feels like it's an iteration or two short of a final draft.
The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
The Hughes Brothers' measured, well-paced direction complements the comic-book simplicity of this narrative.
Variety - Todd McCarthy
Some mordant comic touches would have been welcome throughout the picture, which has a somber tone that suffers a bit from lack of modulation and nuance.

The Book of Eli (2010)
