Man On Fire

2

This movie doesn't deserve Denzel Washington. Lethal and twisted, he gives Tony Scott's fuzzy, Traffic-styled revenge thriller far more heft than it ever earns.

Washington is Creasy, a burned-out former anti-terrorist agent hired to bodyguard a rich man's daughter (Dakota Fanning) in Mexico City. Striking up a father-daughter relationship with the little girl, he goes off the rails when she gets kidnapped. Yes, it's The Bodyguard with a higher body count. We're used to Christopher Walken scene-stealing his way through overfamiliar tosh like this, but Denzel has usually got more sense.
