Man on Fire Details


A man whose ideals have been shattered for the last time is out for violent justice in this thriller. Creasy ([[Performer~P74843~Denzel Washington~denzelwashington]]) is a former United State intelligence agent-turned-mercenary who has seen too much of the violence and corruption in the world and has become jaded and withdrawn. Creasy is hired to act as a bodyguard for Lupita (nicknamed "Pita", played by ([[Performer~P301579~Dakota Fanning~dakotafanning]]), a ten-year-old girl whose wealthy family (a Mexican father and American mother) currently lives in Mexico City, where kidnapping has become a near epidemic. While watching over Pita, Creasy becomes fond of the girl, and finds himself regaining some of his faith in humanity. But things take an ugly turn when Pita is abducted by gunmen who shoot Creasy and leave him to die in the streets. Enraged beyond reason, Creasy recovers and sets out to find the men responsible for kidnapping Pita, no matter who he has to kill along the way. Man on Fire is based on a novel by [[Performer~P314073~A.J. Quinnell~ajquinnell]], which was previously filmed in 1987 with [[Performer~P27245~Scott Glenn~scottglenn]] as Creasy. [[Performer~P74206~Christopher Walken~christopherwalken]], [[Performer~P235577~Radha Mitchell~radhamitchell]], [[Performer~P91430~Giancarlo Giannini~giancarlogiannini]], and [[Performer~P61810~Mickey Rourke~mickeyrourke]] highlight the supporting cast for this remake. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
