Man on Fire


USA 2004, 146 minutes
Dir. Tony Scott
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / Hostages & Terrorism


Aroview: A hard-eyed revenge thriller which sees an alcoholic bodyguard (Washington) losing a 11-yr old girl he's assigned to protect in Mexico City and embarking on a private crusade to retrieve her.

After a slow start having to 'beat the bottle' with the help of God, and from then on spouting neo-Biblicalisms, Washington soon fills the screen with wall-to-wall violence as he chases the child-nappers. Although compentently told, this is finally most notable for its blood-drenched grimness.
