Man on Fire 2004

From Amazon: Style trumps substance in Man on Fire, a slick, brooding reunion of Crimson Tide star Denzel Washington and director Tony Scott. The ominous, crime-ridden setting is Mexico City, where a dour, alcoholic warrior with a mysterious Black Ops past (Washington) seeks redemption as the devoted bodyguard of a lovable 9-year-old girl (the precociously gifted Dakota Fanning), then responds with predictable fury when she is kidnapped. Prolific screenwriter Brian Helgeland (Mystic River, L.A. Confidential) sets a solid emotional foundation for Washington's tormented character, and Scott's stylistic excess compensates for a...

Man on Fire Movie Review by Zara (5/2/2010)

I don't know how Denzel Washington went from being a dramatic actor who seemed to have a huge amount of respect going for him from every possible demographic before he even opened his mouth to being the guy who does mainly action movies where he still gets the respect, but they're more melodramatic than just dramas....

Man on Fire Movie Review by William (4/19/2010)

Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning are perfect in a film about friendship and revenge. Washington stars as John Creasy, a former operative who believes that he has nothing left in life. When he visits Mexico, country where kidnappings are a common thing, sees an old friend named Rayburn, played by Christopher Walkin....

Man on Fire Movie Review by Movie Addict (3/14/2007)

Denzel Washington just can't make a bad movie. There is nothing he has been in that I do not love. No, I am not gay, I just think he is one of the very best. Man on Fire is no exception. The story is been told many times by actors such as Sylvester Stallone or Wesley Snipes or Steven Segal, but no one brings the passion...

Man on Fire Movie Review by Ash (10/24/2006)

Review originally written 4/19/04

What can I say about Man on Fire? It was good. Not as good as I had hoped it would be, but as far as revenge stories goes, it's up there with the best.

Yes the film is violent. Very much so. But then, this is a film driven to absolute hatred and rage. Why should you expect him to be nice...

Man on Fire Movie Review by Seth C (7/14/2006)

Director Tony Scott has a very particular and interesting vision when directing, so much so that he's made it his own. The abnormal editing of quick cuts and distorted images that you'd think would hurt the stories he's trying to tell are, in actuality, adding more to them. It's a style of filmmaking that a lot filmmakers...
