DCRJ's MOVIE REVIEWS : THE BOOK OF ELI (2010) and DEFENDOR (2009)


I just finished watching THE BOOK OF ELI (2010). It's about a self-righteous 'savior' (Denzel Washington) whose mission is to bring the only copy of the Holy Bible to the 'right place' in a bleak post-nuclear war. The movie is still flawed specially the make-ups, men were soiled while the female lead looks refreshingly clean in a gloomy post-apocalyptic period. The feel and look of the film felt rehashed and overdone from other movies. Denzel does martial arts mixed with gun fight-like westerns but can't save the film to become an instant classic. Still watchable. My ratings : 3 out of 5 Biscuits !


I just finished watching DEFENDOR (2009). A dark comedy hilariously acted by Woody Harrelson as a self-proclaimed 'super hero' Defendor (spelled with the letter O) with a low IQ out to save the world from the hands of an illusionary arch enemy called Captain Industry whom he blames for the death of his mother. Defendor's weapons are marbles, a sling shot, a trench club and hordes of pet wasps ! It's a psychological movie, a twisted comedy and at the same time touching and inspirational that can't seem to gel into a single theme. It reminded me of John Ritter's 1980 film 'Hero At Large'. My ratings: 4 out of 5 biscuits !
