Just got around to watching this. Good movie and I recommend it. I like the themes of lost knowledge in a post-apocalyptic world and the power hungry using religion as a way to control the masses. And, I like the Eli character and the twist(s) at the end even though I partially predicted it.
What killed some of my suspension of disbelief was the notion that just because religious books were destroyed that religion no longer existed. Wouldn't people still remember their beliefs and pass it on to their families? I'd think that especially true in times of great troubles such as the wars and (presumably) nuclear destruction that followed.
Also, when the book is finally delivered and is run through the printing press I found it amazing that they had access to so much paper. That implies a thriving forest from which to harvest wood pulp and an industry to turn it in to paper. Not impossible, or maybe they just had a huge reserve of paper somewhere, but seemed unlikely.
Also also, cars running on 30 year old gas? My lawnmower runs rough after sitting for the winter even with gas stabilizer in it.
Despite those points, I still enjoyed it for the themes and the action. Good flick, and worth a watch no matter what your beliefs.
