One review

  • This movie is actually brilliant. I mean the whole emotional build up in this film is continual yet its not boring. The relationship between Creasy (Denzel) and Pita (Dakota) and the way in which is built up really makes this movie brilliant. The emotion of the movie really got to me, the way Denzel plays his character is magnificent, he really manages to show his brilliance as always.

    I think this movie really bought out the capabilities of Denzel, he really brings out his emotions in the movie and shows the real talent he has. I thought this movie was brilliant, a masterpiece and all because Denzel plays his role perfectly. He manages to make every scene perfect and shows true emotion with his relationship with Lupita (Dakota Fanning). The music was also brilliant especially “Una Palabra” which went perfectly with the end showing the death of Denzel Washington. If anyone really likes brilliant use of emotions a long with a great story, this movie is for you.
