Movie Review: Man On Fire

I'm a fan of Denzel Washington, but I'm not going to recommend Man On Fire. It has an interesting enough plot, but the violence is gory and the sountrack sounds like it was recycled from the movie Gladiator. Worst of all, the cinematography is done in that gritty, trendy hopping-around-on-a-pogo-stick-while-high-on-ecstasy style that our kids are going to roll their eyes at the same way we roll our eyes at other dated film styles. I almost turned it off after the first ten minutes because it became completely unwatchable; it made me dizzy. If you are prone to seizures I highly recommend you pass this film by.
