Man on Fire

A PROMISE TO PROTECT. A VOW TO AVENGE.Ā 

John Creasy (Denzel Washington), an alcoholic formerĀ CIAĀ assassin, is hired as a bodyguard to a 9-year-old girl (Dakota Fanning) in Mexico City at a time when kidnappings are rampant.Ā This remake of a 1987 Scott Glenn movie is bombastic to a near-ridiculous level; much too long and full of director Tony Scottā€™s expected (and this time tiresome) tricks in editing and cinematography. The story is a traditional revenge saga, but what does lift it out of the ordinary is the gripping and cute relationship between bodyguard and client.

2004-U.S. 146 min. Color. Widescreen.Ā Directed byĀ Tony Scott.Ā Cast:Ā Denzel Washington (John Creasy), Dakota Fanning (Pita Ramon), Marc Anthony (Samuel Ramos), Radha Mitchell, Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Gianniniā€¦ Mickey Rourke.

Trivia:Ā Michael Bay and Antoine Fuqua were allegedly considered for directing duties; Robert De Niro, Will Smith and Bruce Willis for the part of Creasy.
