Fantastic Film. I'm not sure why people are saying it is too bloody. With films like Terminator and Rambo holding the box office throughout the 80's, and Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan in the 90's, this is much newer, and less violent. The character development was superb, a slow paced beginning building up to a fast paced climax. Only those with a defective attention span would become bored. Denzel and Dakota gave us a mesmerizing performance. My Fiancee and I watched this last week, and I was hesitant because she is very squeamish about any sort of violence, but the characters were so likeable, she was rooting for revenge on the edge of her seat. This movie is fantastic. I fe
My husband and I really liked the beginning of this. It seemed like a nice crime drama with good character development. Unfortunately, we were both disgusted with the way the tone did a complete 180 halfway through. It suddenly became riddled with senseless and extreme violence. We didn't watch the end. I gave it 2 stars instead of just 1 because, as I mentioned, we did enjoy the beginning.
It shows how bad some people have to pay for their mistakes.
for me, this is a exciting and excellent movie, i like it so much. denzel washintong is a wonderfull actor.all his movies are very interesting. but this is the best of all.
Exciting, scary and lovely at the same time, keeps your attention all the time, simply perfect...The best film i`ve ever seen......
Just loved it.
NOT BEING A MOVIE PERSON THIS ONE GOT TO ME WHAT A GREAT FILM!
I LOVE it. from a 1 to a 10 i give it a 100. i will buy it when it comes out. this is a MUCH SEE film. i hope you like it as much as i did.
I love the movie. Dakoat played a great part if you ask me.
Whoever wrote this story or whoever assisted with it knows or knew about the "business" of protection, risks and life in Mexico. He or she captured the underlying stress, tremors and surprises one faces when working on special projects there and the rampant corruption and brutality of some in an otherwise beautiful place with wonderful people. He or she also captured the very essence of a hardened, tough individual who was struggling with a violent past in the midst of a spiritual awakening and whose life was changed by a precocious loving little girl. I think Washington really captured the main character`s struggles.
this is such a good movie dakota fanning is so good in this. shes a very talented girl.
I thought it was a great movie. I enjoyed how he started out giving up on life and this little girl but that star back in his eye. Really good movie, but very sadd at the end.
i thought it was one of the best moies Denzel Washington has stared in! love it!!
Wow. This is such a great movie. Dakota Fanning is a truly amazing little actress.
Outstanding acting and an amazing job by director "tony scott" THIS HAS TO BE THE MOST BRILLENT PEACE OF CHINIMENTOGRAPHY IVE SEEN IN MY LIFE! the way the director mixes the sound, words, and images all together in scenes is just outstanding, brillent storyline! if this was released near when it was oscar time, it would have been noiminated hands down! a must see, there is no way u wont be clown away with this amazing and smart action/love story
The chemistry between Dakota Fanning and Denzel Washington is what raised this film to excellent, a must see.
Denzel did an amazing job with this movie. I cried my eyes out, it was so emotional and wonderful. Denzel should get an oscar for this one cuz he is so gorgious and pretty.
it`s the best movie in the wold!!!...
It was the best movie of the year!!!!!!I`m not usually a Denzel fan but after John Q and now Man on Fire I`m his #1 Fan. Dakota Fanning is a good actress and I look forward to more of her work.
it`s the best movie in the wold!!!
I love revenge movies, and this was one of the best, if not the best, revenge movies of ALL TIME. The bad guys always have to get theirs, and in this movie they REALLY get theirs. The best part is that the kidnappers think that they are so G D invincible and untouchable right up to the time their rectum goes up in flames. Outstanding.
Dakota Fanning is so cute!
I did not think this movie was as good as others have given it. It was choppy, hard to follow and the storyline was lacking something to hold my attention.
Loved it! I even liked the setting up of the plot which a lot of people thinks drags. We are too accustomed to quick, quick, quick! Denzel was top notch. My family and I have viewed this movie 3 times already.
It`s so good that even if you didn`t like it you`ll still respect it.
So good. I didn`t even want to see it but I`m happy I did. A truly powerful film. It should defiantly win something or at least be nominated.
Denzel has done it again in MAN ON FIRE. Along with Dakota Fanning, they should get an oscar for this thrilling yet-brutal thriller!
I like it, my rating of 5. I would like to know if it was base on a true story? Like the ending was something about December 16, 2003.
Just watched the DVD last night. What an awesome movie. I was glued to it. Excellent excellent excellent!!!
This is of one those must-see movies. Very sentimental. Denzel really knows how to act. No wonder he got 2 oscar awards, he really deserves it. Dakota did really well in this film, I see a bright future ahead of her. Who konws when she grows up she might be on the class A celebrity list.
Very good movie! A little slow at first but it really picks up and turns out to be an amazing movie. Denzel is a spectacular actor one of the best,if not the best actor out there, and Dakota Fanning is adorable. 4 and a half stars.
OSCAR.. on word!!!
Denzel should get the oscar. Totally absorbing.
it was one of Denzel Washingtons best!
it was great. Denzel should get an award for this movie. Great action Great Plot. Over all rating 5 stars.
very sentimental! a story of a depth, and the music and camera work are perfect matches.
This movie was AMAZING.....gto see it if you havnt already seen it....worth every penny
Denzel is the best actor out there. Period.
terrible movie! the title is very decieving there was no man on fire at all! He was merely burned.
Denzel does an amazing job yet again!!
Solid movie, with another excellent performance by Denzel Washington. About 30-40 minutes too long, but features some amazing camera work and cinematography. Tony Scott has a very distinct and cutting edge film making style.
The movie was flawless! Absolutely amazing!
It was a FANTASTIC movie and emotional. A must see film.
Awesome movie! Alittle slow at first but if you hang in there it gets really really good! Worth every penny!
Reminded me of rambo or something. But it was good
