Ahmed Al Kiremli Opinion

I always say that Denzel Washington is my man. He’s getting better at selecting his roles year after year. His performances are so believable; he melts himself into the character, and the way he moves, the way his face looks, the way he talks is just so real. I love him, and he’s still number one in my favorite actors list. This movie is one of his best movies.
Director Tony Scott did an amazing job, like he did before in Enemy of the State (1998) and Revenge (1990). This kind of movie is his specialty. The sound mixing, the script, the music and songs were just amazing and perfect. All these aspects made the movie very touching, real, and believable.
Dakota Fanning is a brilliant actress. I love the way she acts, especially in this movie; her smile, her tears, and her facial expressions were amazing and real.
There’s no way that you won’t be emotionally touched by this movie, and the ending will make you cry for sure. I can’t resist not seeing this movie whenever they show it on TV. The story is simple but there’s so much between the lines. The more you see the movie, the more you fall in love in it.
