January 8, 2010

bookofeliart

Two time Academy Award winning actor Denzel Washington is a man on fire in The Book Of Eli and from what I hear the 55 year old trained 4 months with martial art experts in preparation for the role. Washington will be playing a fearless and ruthless drifter Eli, who walks across the ruins of America in the in this post apocalyptic adventure. Armed with an arsenal of weapons ranging from a shotgun to a Samari sword Eli kills to protect what some would kill to have, a sacred book that holds the to saving mankind. Along side actors Mila Kunis and Gary Oldman, Washington anticipates the film will share with audiences the spiritual revolution they embarked as Eli embarrasses on his journey across a vile and cold world where one man stands fights not only to save mankind but to defend his virtue.

Denzel and Travolta star in The Taking Pelham 1 2 3

March 5, 2009

Denzel Washington and John Travolta hit the big screen in action  thriller The Taking Pelham 1 2 3. Washington stars as Walter Garber, a civil service employee working for the New York subway system who’s world is changed when the train Pelham 123 is hijacked by a criminal mastermind, Ryder played by Travolta. Once in  control of the train Ryder and his well armed gang of four hold the passengers hostage, demanding a million dollar ransom to be delivered within the hour or hostages will be executed.

Sounds like a good one to me. With Denzel Washington playing the heroic negotiator I can only expect a great performance, such as displayed in Deja Vu, Inside Man, and The Manchurian Candidate. Then there’s John Travolta who is playing the villainous criminal mastermind which is more than the icing on the cake as seen in Be Cool and The Punisher.
