"Man on Fire" is more than just a man on

by Brendan H. - xado13x@yahoo.com on 10/7/2004

I will admit right off the bat that I am a biased fan of Denzel Washington, but this film in all aspects is truly great. Based on the book by A.J. Quinnel about a kidnapping in Mexico City, Tony Scott directs a true excercise in great cinematography as well as the creative use of subtitles. But the greatest highlight is the between the bodyguard ie ex counter-insurgencie soldier John W Creasy (Denzel Washington) and Pinta (Dakota Fanning)both of them deliver strong leading roles that never lack to be convincing. The film is approximately 2 hours and 35 minutes long, But the first hour is spent developing a relationship between Creasy and Pinta. This first hour is rather heart-warming but never at any point cutesy. After which Pinta is kidnapped and Creasy takes on a ring of kidnappers and crooked federales. The film is well acted to the end including two very impressive supporting roles from Christopher Walken and Mickey Rourke. The film ends with a satisfying but not too complicated twist. Overral the combination of graceful action beautiful cinematography and stunning performances "Man on Fire" makes an excellent drama.

Just an OK movie

on 5/3/2012

The story was just ok at best which is actually based on a book. Denzel Washington acted very well and looked awesome. However, some of the dialog of the movie were not captivating. I watched it movie once and that's it-wouldn't bother watching it again. Overall, It is a good action/drama movie.

Product Overview

Two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington ignites a masterpiece of mayhem in this powerful (Los Angeles Times) action-thriller about sweet redemption...and savage retribution.

Hard-drinking, burnt-out ex-CIA operative John Creasy (Washington) has given up on life--until his friend Rayburn (Oscar winner Christopher Walken) gets him a job as a bodyguard to nine-year-old Pita Ramos (Dakota Fanning). Bit by bit, Creasy begins to reclaim his soul, but when Pita is kidnapped, Creasy unleashes a firestorm of apocalyptic vengeance against everyone responsible.
