Man on Fire
Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning have an odd-couple chemistry in the 2004 re-make of Man on Fire. The movie gives Denzel's character, John Creasy, a heart as an ex CIA agent turned bodyguard as he heroically saves, Pita Ramos, Dakota's character. Tony Scott directed the film and made sure that the film displayed a vigilant John Creasy rather than a sadistic persona like the original film.
Original: 1987 / Man on Fire (Eli Chouraqui)
