A down-and-dirty revenge tale that packs an emotional punch.

"One of those rare treats -- an original and ingenious take on an otherwise formulaic idea."

I couldn't help thinking afterwards how harebrained the whole adventure was. Yet Washington is so charming, so charismatic, and so heroic in his role, he makes the movie.

For those who flinched at watching Denzel go crooked in "Training Day," you may want to hide under your seat as he goes absolutely twisted here.

The chemistry between Washington and Fanning is the main reason why the story works. Without it, Man on Fire would just be a big dumb loud violent music video.

It has just enough weight and depth to feel like it means something. I don't think it actually DOES mean anything, but it gives the illusion of it nicely.

[W]hat may take the jaded viewer aback is the amount of time [Tony Scott] dedicates to character development before heading down the inevitable trail of bloody revenge.

Because of Washington's superb gifts and stores of charisma, he can be casual in the way he exercises them, even in a method of interrogation never seen on NYPD.

Overstylized and burdened by its chaotic, quick-cut editing. But its performances save it.

As the screen fades to black, we are left thinking about the characters, not the carnage.

Intentional or not, Man on Fire's over-the-top evocation of Christian retribution goes a long way to making this otherwise standard revenge fantasy watchable.

Laramie Movie Scope

Artfully polished, but an inhumanely cruel, repetitive, murderous vendetta casts a dreary shadow over the last hour of the film.

...un drame solide, sombre, efficace et porté par une qualité de performances qu'on voit trop rarement dans ce genre de film.

I'm recommending Man on Fire for that bold style, its unapologetic comic book story arc, and the great performances from Denzel Washington, Christopher Walken and young Dakota Fanning.
