Tony Scott movies mean one thing, suspense filled thrillers with lots of action. But this movie stands out in his catalogue, this one shows another side, it shows a heart and hits you square in the chest.
Denzel's acting is fantastic, he fits the role perfectly, as his character starts to develop you start to warm to him. You sense his good heart, you sympathize with him and can't help but cheer him on throughout.
The story is slower than most Tony Scott movies, it has a lot of character development and builds slowly. You really get to understand the characters and become one with them. But saying its slow doesn't mean it lacks excitement, there's plenty of shoot outs and blood rushing action throughout.
It's a touching movie, the ending is very emotion and will make even the toughest of men want to shed a tear. Denzel's performance is top-notch, he made the character real and gives it emotion.
Overall: There are a few negatives but the positives outweight them. There's action backed by a good story, it's simple but keeps you guessing and keeps you watching.
Emotional and Exciting
