This is a great great film. The combination of Denzil Washington and Tony Scott creates a film of depth and substance. Denzil gives a performance that should have received an Oscar nomination and Tony Scott's jumpy camera work and fast pace plotting is always edge of the seat. Buy in confidence super film!!

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

  Quality Retribution!

*Man On Fire starts Denzel Washington, a retired hitman hired to protect a family. When the family are targeting Denzel makes it his personal mission to get revenge and seek the truth.
*This is a great film, well directed, the story is good and has lots of twist, there's a lot of great action. My only criticism is that the slightly surreal takes in-between scenes are a little unnecessary. Denzel is also at his best in this film. Just short of being a classic.

  Truly Amazing
