FORGIVENESS IS BETWEEN THEM AND GOD...
...IT IS MY JOB TO ARRANGE THE MEETING.

Somehow when Denzel Washington says this line it is not as convincing as maybe Van Diesel. Washington and Dakota Fanning did their expected wonderful job, but the ending was all wrong for the movie.

The movie starts out slow. Washington plays a Jack Daniels guzzling former CIA agent who reads the Bible. His partner, Christopher Walken, lands him a job guarding Dakota Fanning (Pita). Early in the movie we find out every rich person in Mexico hires a body guard, then gets kidnapping insurance from AIG for 10 million dollars, which the kidnappers know about. This sets you up for the expected plot twists which were not terrific.

Denzel doesn't want to get friendly with Dakota, but ends up becoming her friend, father, swimming coach, chauffeur, etc. etc. Dakota Fanning gets kidnapped (box information). Denzel uses his CIA "walking tall" methods to go after the bad guys, which includes half of Mexico. The substandard script, slow beginning, and questionable ending took away from the production.

The ending should have included a dramatic escape by Fanning involving her ability to swim as the movie centered so much on this aspect of her life.

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 !!!

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.

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.

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...

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.
