Man on Fire is more or less another one of these films, though it does at least try to develop more depth than a typical film in that particular sub-genre.

Bit of a tough one to review. Man On Fire pushes a lot of buttons in the right way... but look under the skin only slightly and it feels extremely pretentious. It lays on thick the message of friendship and revenge for wrongs...
