Product Overview

Two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington ignites a masterpiece of mayhem in this "powerful" (Los Angeles Times) action-thriller. Hard-drinking, burned-out 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's fiery rage is released and he will stop at nothing to save her.

Review It's open season for vigilantes. With Kill Bill Volume 2, The Punisher, and Walking Tall already out there, Man on Fire is entering a crowded marketplace...When you line up Uma Thurman, Thomas Jane, The Rock, and Denzel Washington, Washington comes out the clear winner when it comes to both box office appeal and acting chops. So it's no surprise that Man on Fire represents the best of this crop of revenge movies...Man on Fire is a remake of a 1987 film starring Scott Glenn. Not having seen the earlier film or read A.J. Quinnell source novel, I can't compare this version to the other incarnations, but, standing on its own, this is a solid motion picture and a better-than-average example of a revenge flick. By concentrating on the emotional impact rather than the pyrotechnics, ammunition, and action/thriller elements, this comes across as an effective piece of drama, and it doesn't cheat us with a Hollywood cop-out ending.

Review In a near-reprisal of his violent Training Day role, Denzel Washington brings the same intensity to Man on Fire, playing yet another good cop/bad cop rolled into one--this time, more good than bad...In part, Scott seems drawn to the tradition of the slow-simmering kidnapping thriller a la Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much. But he's also a visual-minded stylist who's fascinated by the same edgy film tricks that Steven Soderbergh used in Traffic: multiple cameras, odd angles, sped-up and slowed-down shots, rotational shots, skip printing, cross-processing, and film reversals that saturate the frames with strobe-light bursts of grainy color. It all adds a stylish intensity and creates a surreal atmosphere that the The Punisher, another 2004 violent revenge film, could have used.
