This is by far one of the better made movies and
didn't leave me disappointed at all. The sound track along with finely
shot hand-held camera work was exquisite . The are always chances a
movie won't hold ones beliefs as well as another, but I felt that
rhythm of this picture and the timing was excellent. Dakota Fanning is
rapidly becoming a staple in movie that require a child with an old
soul personality and she has never disappointed me with her talent. As
for Mr. Washington and of course Christopher Walken they both exceed
the challenge of showing the darkest sides of humanity trying to move
to the light..

Denzel is on FIRE
Tony Scott's newest contribution to the world of cinema is truly a
His choice of main star, Denzel Washington, was solid and
reassuring--who best to take the lead role than one of the greatest
actors the world has ever seen.
But Dakota Fanning saved it from the standard action/vengeance
category. Too many films have relied on child stars and failed simply
because they are not believable. Dakota broke the trend by truly
grabbing the viewer by the heart and soul and wrenching them when
catastrophe finally lands at her doorstep.
As for the film-making process itself, Tony Scott excels. He took the
recently favoured "shaky-camera/documentary" style and elevated it to a
level of artistic expression that anyone else could only dream to
achieve. Harsh contrasts and ever-moving subtitles flow seamlessly as
emotions run high and morals are soon flung out a Meican window.
In the first half we are treated to a heart-warming, but not annoyingly
mushy, relationship between Washington and Fanning, as they both learn
to look to each other for what they both needed the most: a
The second half is a brutal escapade of vengeance and retribution, as
Washington inflicts all the pain and rage that the viewer feel with him
upon the perpetrators of the horrible act. His journey through the
underbelly of Mexico is harrowing, his actions violent and
pitiless--and yet we, as the companion on this trek, know they fully
deserve the suffering they endure.
The climax is the perfect ending to the perfect movie. Heart-stopping,
tense, depressing and yet hopeful---most importantly it is REAL and
through that realism we finally exit the theatres knowing Washington is
an everyday hero: breaking the rules, taking lives, but for an
undeniably good cause.
Downside: thanks to the ever-burgeoning business side of cinema, ads
have revealed the hinted-at but not obvious twist halfway through that
spurns his quest for attack. This almost makes you wish he'd GET ON
WITH IT, rather than allow us o enjoy the growing bond between
father-figure and lonely child.
I recommend this film to anyone with a heart..
