Bit by bit, Creasy begins to reclaim his soul, but when Pita is kidnapped, Creasy unleashes a firestorm of apocalyptic vengeance against everyone responsible.
man on fire (2004) - tony scott synopsis will be updates..
One of my favorite movies of all time.
Wow, what a movie...I do believe this is in my top 5 of all time. Extremely powerful performance from DW - excellent twist I didn't see coming and more gritty and enjoyable than other "revenge" movies makes it a joy to watch. How in the world didn't the critics see it for what it was? Seems like they are woefully out of touch based on the public response, but honestly they usually are...
This movie is absolutely amazing! From the beautiful cinematography to the incredible acting, Man on Fire is an emotional and thrilling ride from start to end. I 100% recommend it!
Sans aucun doute le meilleur rôle de Denzel Washington
A magnificent work of art that will stay with you for a long time. This is a must-have for anyone that loves great movies.
Watched this movie whenever it first came out, and is still my favorite movie.
Never saw a disappointing Denzel movie
Well great movie , poor critics i would give them(the "critics") 39% because i am a polite man.
One of the greatist movies of all time!
One of Denzel's all time best action film starred in thus far ever💁🏽👍🏽👏🏽
People disregard Rotten Tomatoes on this one. The movie has everything. Great story, amazing acting and directing with plenty of action throughout. 5 stars for me.
Don't get the hate. Reviews are outta this world bad. Just don't get it. Movie is a classic. Guess thats why different folks have different strokes. Excellent movie for those willing to take the chance. Apparently you'll either really love or hate this one.
This movie isn't just about action - like so many are today. It's about restoration and finding that hope isn't lost, and then giving that hope to someone else. It's an evocative story, and if you go into it just looking for action (et tu, Rotten Tomato?) you will be disappointed. Not to mention the cinematography, which is exceptional without using the ridiculous "shaky camera" trend.
If I wanted to read Shakespeare I would go to the library. I am not looking for deep meaning,character definition, ambiguity, hyperbole, diction, Imagery etc... This movie grabs you just as well as any well written book can such that you do not want to put it down! Very, very entertaining!!
Its so crazy how these rotten tomato writers are called pros! They gave this movie a 33%? Its an amazing movie and two amazing performances by Denzel and Dakota.
What's not to like about Denzel Washington? A strong performance as always. It would have been easy for the violence of this movie to turn it in to something really ugly. This, in my opinion was saved by Mr. Washington's cool performance and demeanor. Thought there were some interesting twists to the plot and all in all it held my interest well. Strong supporting acting as well particularly by Christopher Walken and Dakota Fanning. I liked it.
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. Denzel Washington gave an amazing performance. And by the way for the three people who gave it a rotten tomato- your fired!
Greatest movie by Denzel Washington! Period!
Best movie, director, actor. Period.
I love this mooovie it deserves one million stars MOOO
