Fantastic movie but very chilling
Found the overall plot confusing with bad sound effects. My disk had 2 stops for 'disk error' and had to start over with fast forward to get beyond the glitch point.
Thoroughly enjoyed this morning
Started off slowly, but once it got going a very enjoyable movie. But fancy going to Mexico.....Boy, what a cesspit
Good movie, exciting and kept us watching. Denzel always fantastic actor.
Good movie. Really enjoyed this one.
Perfect revenge film.
Denzel/Scott winning again.
Enjoyable action movie - always the same plot but good acting and it entertained me.
a little slow at first, but the rest of the movie made up for it, i thought plenty of action, edge of seat stuff , the actual discs audio was shocking , same as babel , the first 40 mins was ok then it was the same, all over the place,.
Very Good, I would watch it again
very good show- seen before but worth watching again
was on tv last week ,movie is a bit boring
Denzel Washington is much better in Training Day and The Book of Eli. Story was ok but ruined by the ending, can guess whats gonna happen before it does through most of the film. Creative film making by Tony Scott and Denzel always plays darker characters well with great violence and ruthlessness to support.
Five star film ruined by sentimental Hollywood ending
The short version: This is a good movie, that is well worth watching. Denzel Washington's solid performance provides the gravity to hold the film together.
The longer version: The film *needs* holding together, because at times it seems as if they weren't quite sure what kind of movie they were making. Was this supposed to be a gritty and realistic portrayal of the mean streets of Mexico City, or a religio-superstitious tale of redemption through miracles? The "happy ending" felt very unrealistic and "tacked on", draining much of the tension out of the last part of the story.
D W is always good in whatever character he portrays
Worth watching. The revenge of Denzel.
I found this movie very good. It highlights the different crimes that are committed in different countries and how easy even with protection things can happen. Based on truth makes you more aware of all your surroundings even in a comunity you know.
An absolutely fantastic movie. A must see heart stopper where the good guy wins. Dakota Fanning was superb.
A little bit slow to start but once it cranks up it is a real action thriller. Can't beleive I took so long before I watched it. Powerful movies and Denzel is an awesome actor as always.
This guy Denzel Washington is a natural! The movie deserves 5 stars ... hang onto your seat belts and get out the tissues .... great acting and storyline.
Another good movie from Denzil. Good plot, wonderful acting by all, excellent ending - both of them.
Absolutely brilliant.Dakota played an outstanding role,highly recommend this movie.Drama and action it has it all.
denzel washington in one of his better roles of late........ a touching story of what love can do to anyone. plenty of action and a fantastic story line.
Denzel is fabulous. Love the no mercy for the guilty attitude of the film and there are some great lines. "Forgiveness is between them and God. It's my job to arrange the meeting."
Not what i expected but Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning are excellent.
A must see film. Very Graphic. Denzel at his very best.
Denzel Washington fans will eat this up but it may be a bit much for the rest of us. It had a reasonable story but got way too sickly sweet for my taste at the end.
The critics underrated this movie something fierce - it's a compelling drama with great acting by all the cast, especially Denzel.
Great movie. Denzel Washington is fantastic. Dakota Fanning is a little annoying, but a movie that has to be watched. Great thriller with keeps you enthralled all the way to the end.
enyoyed immensely, well made movie.
Some of the direction really annoys me. However a magnificent performance by Denzel Washington more than makes up for the "artistic" camera work. Can be a bit gory but one of the best films I have seen for a long, long time.
Good version of the "ransomed in South America" theme
Excellent movie.Great story
Lots of action.
Great movie. Denzel is, as usual, at his best. Agree that the young mother and the silly girl should have been given the heave ho too - acting wise.
gives a wakeup call to what mankind dose to others
A great Denzel movie. The first half when he establishes a rapport with the little girl and is a treat to watch. I wish they had taken that a bit further. The latter part is very grim (and somehow destroys the feel-good effect produced in the first half)
A gorgeous movie, short under not to be missed!! good story and perfect actors!
Enjoyed this movie. Not as voilent as I expected though (which is a good thing).
plot may be slow at the begining but well worth persistance.
A brilliant film with Denzel Washington. Only downfall was Dakata Fanning. She's terrible! Will be avoiding any film with her in it from now on!!!
I enjoyed this movie, & that's a tribute to the movie's ability to involve the viewer, because there are gaping holes in the plot
A quality and touching movie.
A brilliant movie with a bitter sweet ending. I loved it.
Loved the movie "Man on Fire"
Danziel Washington is one of my favorite actors.The movie had plenty of action and I learned it was a true story
This movie was weird. Overly violent in the second half but sweet in the first.
Might be too much for some and sometimes the violence seems far too extreme and unnecessary. Acting is good though but be warned it is a movie of 2 parts.
Brilliant film with Denzel Washington at his superb best. Mexico City was a magnificent setting for this non-stop action movie, with great support from all the other interesting actors.
dakota fanning is wonderful plus appreciated lack of swearing!!!
Great movie, but i'm a serious Denzel Washington fan!
If you are a fan of Denzel then a great movie. If not then perhaps it is not so good as the story is just not believable even though it is apparently based upon real life but perhaps some poetic licence was allowed!
an absolute fantastic movie
An excellant movie,keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
The plot of this movie, characters and obviously Denzel is at his best. I will recommend this movie to anyone who likes good plot, well staged "revenge" with guns, liberation, bravery and the lot.
Good if you like revenge movies, but not up to Denzel
Washington's usual standard.
Great movie, action packed, keeps you thinking and on the edge of your seat kind of stuff. Plenty of twists and quite moving in the end.
"Bloody" top notch movie. basically in 2 halves. The tender love thingy and the violent thingy. The graphics are great.
Great movie, watched it many times.
Great movie. Lots of twists and turns. Only thing was some of the filmography was too flashy. Denzel was awesome!
The amount of in your face violence almost spoiled this movie, but its spell-binding action, great plot and excellent acting more than made up for it
Heavy movie with some good twists.
A good movie with some surprises, although definitely not for those who faint at the sight of blood. There are some predictable moments,and others that seem to go unexplained. That is until you see the alternatiive ending and deleted scenes in speceal features. A wonderful performance from Dakota Fanning.
Critically reviled, but visceral, brutal, uncompromising filmmaking. Manipulative, maybe, sadistic, sure, but I was sucked in. The improvised scenes between Fanning and Washington are amazing. A guilty pleasure.
Fantastic, although typical Denzel Washington performance. Refreshing new characters, and the kidnapped child is played brilliantly by Dakota Fanning.
Definite recommended viewing, although high levels of violence excused by reciprocity.
