Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 and presumably killed. 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 distended plot that's both repellently violent and viscerally absorbing. Among Scott's more distracting techniques is the use of free-roaming, comic-bookish subtitles... even when they're unnecessary! Adapted from a novel by A.J. Quinnell and previously filmed as a 1987 vehicle for Scott Glenn, Man on Fire is roughly on par with Scott's similar 1990 film Revenge, efficiently satisfying Washington's incendiary bloodlust under a heavy blanket of humid, doom-laden atmosphere. --Jeff Shannon

Saw the movie, thought it was amazing... a different type of movie, a little slow at the begining establishing plot and story.. really getting a good feel for Washingtons character and Dakotas character.
Just recently saw the book in my Dads collection of 20 years ago and read it. Thought the book was amazing. Its a little different than the movie, but just a superb book and movie.
Cant wait to get my hands on the DVD !!!

This movie is by far once of the best movies I have seen in a very very long time. One guy made the comment that Denzel didnt have a character that was believeable, this couldnt be anymore further from the truth. This movie is great from opening credit to the closing credits. Denzel once again not only wows me but Dakota Fanning did an outstanding job also. Anybody that hasnt seen this movie really needs to take the time and watch this. GREAT, AWESOME movie. you will all be happy you did...September 14th cant come soon enough.....5 stars isnt a good enough rating for this movie but its all i can give it

I avoid most Denzel Washington movies. Generally he is cast in the role of a too-slick, too-smart, unbelievable hero character. In Man on Fire, he is cast differently, and it is great! He plays a decrepit assassin wore down by guilt and booze, but spurred by revenge, demonstrates a really mean streak. This is a different role for Denzel! The setting for the movie, Mexico City, is also different and refreshingly interesting. The plot is believeable. The ending is a bit too contrived, but overall, I found this action-drama entertaining.

I love the movie. RIP Tony Scott. It's a great movie about lost souls who finds a reason to live and what happens when that reason is taken away.

See Denzel Washington give a commanding performance. He really commands presence on the screen. He's such a powerful actor.

The extras were sorely lacking, but for the price I paid, I am happy with the product. I received delivery within the standard disclosed timeframes and the product arrived in good shape.

Overall, I am happy with the product and service.

Format: DVD
If you've read the book, the movie's storyline is a little disappointing. If you've seen the movie and haven't read the book yet... You really need to. It is most satisfying, and will give you a better understanding and appreciation of the character Creasy.
The location switch from Italy to Mexico works well. Of course, we miss out on the Isle of Gozo. As with most novel-to-cinema adaptions, we miss out on a lot of subplot (Creasy's women). And as is inevitable with a major studio production, the ending has been "Hollywood-ized." (can't tell you more without giving away the ending... read the book).
However, Denzel Washington does an excellent job portraying the character Creasy, as I knew he would. Dakota Fanning is Pinta, no question about it. Christopher Walken, always a good choice, was an excellent casting choice here. A.J. Quinnell would be proud. Marc Anthony...? Well, A.J. Quinnell would understand.

I have over 700 DVD's. As I get older my hearing has dropped off because of using weapons in the service. Some of my DVD's have older movies on them with no Subtitles, Man on Fire is one of these. For me Subtitles are a great added feature. I like the story line in this movie. Subtitles make this movie come alive for me ... thanks from E C SR2 also Thanks Amazon and thanks Denzel for this great offering...

This movie is fantastic. The first part of the movie sets up the audience perfectly, hope is given, taken away and then given to you again. This is a fantastic movie, I can't speak highly enough of it. If you like ANY of the actors in this movie; see this movie.
