Man on Fire

John W. Creasy (Denzel Washington) is a burned-out ex-CIA assassin, who is continously haunted by the sins that he has committed. His best friend Rayburn (Christopher Walken) gets him a job as a bodyguard for industrialist Samuel Ramos' (Marc Anthony) young daughter Pita (Dakota Fanning) and his wife Lisa (Radha Mitchell). At first Creasy sees Pita as only a job showing no interest in her whatsoever (except protecting her). But pretty soon he begins to show affection for her as she changes the cold and heartless man in Creasy, and gives him a new purpose in life. But the happiness is broken when Pita is kidnapped. This tragic event changes Creasy back to his old behaviour and he becomes determined to rescue her and kill everyone involved in the kidnapping.

Creasy: Okay, my friend. It's off to the next life for you. I guarantee you, you won't be lonely.



When Creasy's friend Ray is sitting on the couch at the Agency for Federal Investigation and calls Creasy an artist of death, from a side shot he eats a piece of food, licks his fingers clean, and from the shot it is clear that he is holding nothing in his hand. However, on the next shot from the front, Ray is holding something in the same hand, points to it with the other hand, leans forward and throws it on a plate, then picks up a napkin and wipes off the fingers he had just licked clean in the shot before.



When Pita is doing her homework and notices Creasy smiling, they play a game to see who smiles first. This scene was completely improvised.
