Man on Fire ★★★★½

I love this movie. I think this might be my favorite Denzel Washington character. He's subtle but an absolute killer. His progression from his first visit down to Mexico all the way through the end of the movie is a great character arch to witness. The story itself is great, as there are plenty of subtle plot twits that keep you guessing. The Denzel and Dakota Fanning story line is a real highlight, as they become more of an unlikely family throughout the film. And seeing Denzel unleashed half way through the movie is pure awesomeness.

Christoper Walken is as charming as ever as a long lost partner of Denzel; loyal, faithful and supportive to a fault. There are other great supporting actors and characters sprinkled throughout the film such as Giancarlo Giannini, Marc Anthony, and Mickey Rourke.

My only gripe with the movie is the excessive camera movement, especially in the transitions and some of the music choices. Other than that, I think its a perfect movie.
