Reviews

David Ng Village Voice | April 27, 2004

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.

Richard Roeper Ebert & Roeper | April 26, 2004

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.

Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle | April 23, 2004

This is garbage, but it's entertaining garbage.

Jay Boyar Orlando Sentinel | April 23, 2004

You'd have to call Man on Fire a mess, but at least it's an interesting mess.

Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald | April 23, 2004

Man on Fire awakens a genuine sense of bloodlust in the viewer.

Tom Long Detroit News | April 23, 2004

Man on Fire lacks the depth to truly ignite the screen, so instead does a slow, steady burn. It singes beautifully, but never explodes.

Terry Lawson Detroit Free Press | April 23, 2004

Easily the best of the recent spate of cynical and violent revenge/vigilante dramas.
