Man on Fire
Source: Catholic News Service
Dark and depraved revenge tale about an ex-soldier of fortune turned professional bodyguard (Denzel Washington), who unleashes his lethal fury on a ring of Mexican kidnappers after they abduct the little girl (Dakota Fanning) he has been hired to protect. As directed by Tony Scott, the film poses interesting questions concerning sin and forgiveness, but its superficial theological pretensions quickly give way to a grisly procession of torture and death, which, though unbearable to watch at times, ends on a redemptive note. Excessive graphic violence, a rationalization of vengeance, much rough and crude language, and a suicide. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
