Trust me, in the end you will have a weird and inexplicable feeling. The theme reflects Pita's innocence and sounds a bit like 's theme from. It's a sad truth that our police system is as rotten as a 3 month old corpse. A story of ultimate greed that backfires is offset against a childs innocence and love. The dialogue is clunky and pretentious. A third of the album's 29 track length is in the last 3 tracks. Director Tony Scott throws in a lot of tiresomely faddish tricked-up shots, using the subtitles as a part of the frame and putting a countdown to a time bomb in the corner of the screen.
A character has a drinking problem. Added blood and gore in there, but brought the realistic nature of what happens to the front of the film, and even had a tear jerker ending for many people i should think. The music in was vital to the film as there was such raw emotion behind Denzel Washington's troubled character. Quinnell's 1980 novel of the same name; the first film based on the novel was released in 1987. If you are fond of both actors and of somewhat deranged films, you still haven't watched your favorite one yet.
This is by far one of the better made movies and didn't leave me disappointed at all. I'm a Mexican and was in the least offended by it. From the loving innocence of Pita, who teaches Creasy that it is alright to live again, to the pure rage and anger in some of the latter tracks' electronics, to the final uplifting end track, is a quite unique and very powerful addition to Gregson-Williams' filmography. It is a must watch for anyone. There are some interesting parts of this score, but it would be no more than typical thriller score if it were not for the last few tracks.
This film has you on the edge for its entirety, and doesn't cop out at the end either. The film also features some non-score songs, quite a few by Nine Inch Nails and Linda Ronstadt. Each score he has done has been a new style in a new genre: from the ambient electronics of to the percussive action of , the swashbuckling powerhouse of to the celtic-inspired drama of and more. Christopher Walken is of course superb in his part although he did not appear as often as I would have liked. Even with all of the explosions and shootouts, the movie feels bloated and much too long at nearly two and a half hours. Although he insists he is not there to be her friend and does not want to talk to her, he is soon coaching her for the big swim meet and she is naming her bear after him. This is also a film for action movie lovers as it has its fair share of bullets, rockets and revenge.
The are always chances a movie won't hold ones beliefs as well as another, but I felt that rhythm of this picture and the timing was excellent.

Dakota Fanning is rapidly becoming a staple in movie that require a child with an old soul personality and she has never disappointed me with her talent. Two of today's most talented and charismatic screen performers are lost in an over-big, over-loud, over-heated, over-long, over-everything mess of a story about revenge. Washington and of course Christopher Walken they both exceed the challenge of showing the darkest sides of humanity trying to move to the light. I often wonder why he seems to get so many duff roles, when he quite clearly is as good as almost any leading man out there I can only really think of one, Daniel Day Lewis, who has more on-screen power these days.
Gregson-Williams' latest score reunites him with Tony Scott's portrayal of Americans in foreign places, this time Mexico City in. The film is awesome, see it, rent it, buy it or whatever. The movie is almost two separate stories, one of Creasy and Pita's bonding and the other a tale of Creasy's revenge, and this is reflected on the album as well. Today we're talking Man On Fire on Action Movie Anatomy! We should have someone like Creasy, Denzel Washington's character. The film is just based on actual facts and some characters are not fictional, a fact that adds up to the shock that i was having during and after the film. Denzel Washington plays one of his most engaging and emotional roles to date, and the rest of the cast perform beautifully. The sound track along with finely shot hand-held camera work was exquisite.
In fact, I think this movie should be shown at police headquarters all over Mexico. Man on Fire is a 2004 American thriller film and the second adaptation of A. The location of Mexico City adds a feel of seediness and corruption which in itself is an eye opener. Completists are advised to get the album, then download the extra tracks on iTunes.

It just goes to show you that if a studio doesn't back a film to the hilt, it ends up going straight to video.
While this score is exactly what I was expecting and hoping for! The electronics seem to be used to reflect both Creasy's anger and pain. The movie's strengths include strong inter-racial friendships and respect for spiritual values. I swear you'll be cheering as you watch Denzel Washington dispatch the wrong doers. Kidnapping is flourishing industry down here at least in the big cities. Both and have electronic elements, but while the former was very rhythmic, elements of Gregson-Williams' latest effort are chaotic explosions of electronic beats - and it's great! Tony Scott can make good films and bad, personally I think he can be a bit flashy and trashy and his work obviously suffers in comparison with that of his rather famous brother, but this is quite possibly his best film.
His performance is nothing short of Excellent. The film is excellent, the acting by both Denzel and Dakota she will go sky high, trust me on that are just fabulous, and the plot is mind blowing. Just as Creasy begins to develop a fondness for the young girl, a bloodthirsty gunman Jesús Ochoa kidnaps her. Creasy takes on a new job as bodyguard for a Pita Dakota Fanning , the daughter of a rich man. This instrumentation has been used widely since 's , and Gregson-Williams uses it widely throughout this score. It angers me to read in the news how killers, kidnappers and other slime go free by paying a laughable fine or live like kings inside prison cells.
