Bit by bit, Creasy begins to reclaim some of his soul, but when pita is kidnapped, Creasy's fiery rage is finally released and he will stop at nothing to save her as he sets out on a dangerous, revenge fuelled rescue mission. Written by
Creasy's quote about arranging a meeting between the kidnappers and God is similar to a quote falsely attributed to General H. Norman Schwarzkopf. It is not clear whose work the original quote is, which goes: "It's God's responsibility to judge Osama bin Laden. It is our responsibility to arrange the meeting." See more »
When Creasy holds his Glock pistol to Gonzales' head and tells him to drive, the pistol's trigger is in the rearward position, meaning the firing mechanism is not cocked, and there is no round in the chamber. Chambering a round in a Glock pistol cocks the firing mechanism, which puts the trigger in the forward position. It can be assumed that a former special operator and assassin like Creasy would ensure his pistol is loaded and has a round in the chamber before using it. See more »

Here's a gritty, get-the-bad guys revenge story starring a relentless and rough Denzel Washington. He's three personalities here: a down-and-out-low-key-now drunk- former mercenary, then a loving father-type person to a little girl and then a brutal maniac on the loose seeking answers and revenge.
The story is about Washington hired to be a bodyguard for a little American girl living in Mexico, where kidnappings of children occur regularly (at least according to the movie.) He becomes attached to the kid, played winningly by THE child actress of our day, Dakota Fanning. When Fanning is kidnapped in front of him, Washington goes after the men responsible and spares no one. Beware: this film is not for the squeamish.
This is stylish film-making, which is good and bad. I liked it, but a number of people found it too frenetic for their tastes as the camera-work is one that could give you a headache. I thought it fit the tense storyline and was fascinating to view, but it's (the shaky camera) not for all tastes.
Besides the two stars, there is the always-interesting Christopher Walken, in an uncharacteristically low-key role, and a number of other fine actors.
The film panders to the base emotions in all of us, but it works.
