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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Better Movie Sept. 2 2004
Format:DVD
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 !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Masterpiece June 29 2004
Format: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

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.

By cass
Format:Blu-ray
One of the best movies I have ever seen. Awesome production/director. 5 stars all around. Should have been nominated for several awards .. including best actor best director best production best film ect. ect. If you have not seen it you have missed one of the best films of all time. Denzel Washington is amazing. I have never seen a movie like it, and I have seen over 3000 films of all genres.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fave film... May 30 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This film has all the elements of a film that is well put together.
A great story. It has heart and then some. Yes there is some violence but it is intregral to the story. Close your eyes to that part if you are sensitive to that. Enjoy the film.
There are not that many fims that I will watch more than once. This is one that I will will watch every 3 yrs or so.
I have not seen my copy - Blu-Ray yet. I had to ship to someone else as Amazon cannot tell me how it is shipped. Canada Post does not deliver to my door. I have a small community box. small.
