Preview by Jack Foley
MAN On Fire, the gripping, action-packed suspense thriller starring two time Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington, explodes onto Blu-ray on February 9, 2009.
Panic is rising in Man On Fire as Mexico City is becoming overrun by organised crime, and kidnappings are out of control.
With compelling supporting performances by Christopher Walken, Mickey Rourke and Radha Mitchell, the film stars Denzel Washington as ex-CIA operative and assassin John Creasy, who has lost faith in humanity.
Things begin to change for him when he is hired to protect a wealthy couple’s nine-year-old daughter Pita (Dakota Fanning), but suddenly take a turn for the worse when Pita is snatched from Creasy’s watch.
As he starts to tear away at the underworld’s infrastructure, Creasy takes apart all involved and exposes the ugly truth that the city is run by a corrupt and sophisticated organisation which he must destroy.
