Hard drinking, burnt out ex CIA operative John Creasy has given up on life until he's hired as a bodyguard to protect nine year old Pita Ramos. 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
After Samuel Ramos shot himself with Creasy's bullet, the gun can be seen on the floor with the slide locked in the open position. That would only happen if an empty magazine was inserted into the gun, but Creasy had removed the magazine beforehand and Samuel loaded the bullet manually into the chamber. After firing the single bullet, the slide would close forward again. See more »

Special thanks to Mexico City. A very special place. See more »
European (PAL) version of the DVD lack the stylized subtitles found through the movie, except for a few in the beginning. Those subtitles are found in the form of regular DVD subtitles. See more »
This film genuinely was one of the best I have seen in a long time. From the trailer I expected it to be okay, but I didn't imagine it would be as brilliant as it is! My first surprise was the length of the film, and the length of time that elapses before the actual kidnapping takes place. I have not seen a film for some time that was this sad. I loved Creasy (and I'm not normally a Denzel Washington fan!) and the little girl was so cute that I knew I was going to be distressed by her kidnapping.
In summary, the two lead characters, Creasy and Pita, were amazing and brilliantly acted. And the ending made me cry (a lot). This film is very heartwarming and even the revenge scenes were better than I expected!
8/10 (and that's probably not being very generous). If you haven't seen it, see it! But be warned that it's a lot longer than you'd think!
