The 25 Year Old Denzel Washington
3 April 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having made his screen debut at the age of 23, the 25 year old Denzel Washington made this diabolical television film titled 'Flesh and Blood'. I don't know how this passed the development executives or even the script editors, but it should have been relocated to the dustbin as soon as the first reader read it.
