Man on Fire

A wave of kidnappings has swept through Mexico, feeding a growing sense of panic among its wealthier citizens, especially parents.  In one six-day period, there were 24 abductions, leading many to hire bodyguards for their children.


 Into this world enters John Creasy (DENZEL WASHINGTON), a burned-out ex-CIA operative/assassin who has given up on life.  Creasy's friend Rayburn (CHRISTOPHER WALKEN) brings him to Mexico City to be a bodyguard to nine-year-old Pita Ramos (DAKOTA FANNING), daughter of industrialist Samuel Ramos (MARC ANTHONY) and his wife Lisa (RADHA MITCHELL).  Creasy is not interested in being a bodyguard, especially to a youngster, but for lack of something better to do, he accepts the assignment.


 Creasy barely tolerates the precocious child and her pestering questions about him and his life.  But slowly, she chips away at his seemingly impenetrable exterior, his defenses drop, and he opens up to her.

 

 


 Creasy's new-found purpose in life is shattered when Pita is kidnapped.  Despite being mortally wounded during the kidnapping, Creasy is "a man on fire," as he vows to kill anyone involved in or profiting from the kidnapping.  And no one can stop him.
