The Book of Eli

Factual error: The type of book that Eli is protecting would actually be just a fragment. The complete Bible, in braille, occupies as many as 18 volumes.

Factual error: Eli uses an apparently moist KFC wetnap to clean himself in an early scene, yet it's been at least 30 years since the apocalyptic event happened. Unopened KFC wetnaps will dry out in a matter of months under normal conditions.

Continuity mistake: When Eli is leaving Carnegie's town, as he walks away from Carnegie and his gang right before the shoot-out, the position of their shadows alternate drastically between shots, falling sometimes in front of the characters and sometimes to the side.

Continuity mistake: When Solara hijacks the SUV after leaving George and Martha's, there are mountains that disappear from shot to shot. Right after Carnegie yells "Go back," you can see mountains in front of them. When Solara gets out and looks at them turning around, those mountains are gone. After she grabs the grenade and stands in the middle of the road, they are back. When she throws the grenade and Carnegie's vehicle swerves out of the way, the mountains are gone again.

Continuity mistake: When Eli has the confrontation with the gang in the beginning he cuts the leader's hand off with his sword. When you see the sword in the very next shot, the blood is only on the edge of the sword and not smeared across it as it should be.

Other mistake: The protected copy of the Bible is placed at the end next to a copy of the Artscroll Tanach which includes the Hebrew/English version of the original bible as well as the other 39 holy books, so they had it all the time.

Quotes

Eli: In all these years I've been carrying it and reading it every day, I got so caught up in keeping it safe that I forgot to live by what I learned from it.

Trivia

When Eli and Solara are in his room for the night there is a movie poster on the wall behind them for a similar post apocalyptic movie. "A Boy and His Dog". In Eli the survivors protect themselves from the sun's rays and in "A Boy and His Dog" they flee underground to hide from the sun.
