Denzel Washington, The Book of Eli
No question, MAN ON FIRE. The first time I saw it, I loved it. But, it was the 2nd and 3rd times, that I noticed the incredible cultural differences, and the deep intensity and range of emotions he portrayed, as he always does. It was the ultimate example of giving your life for someone else. I cried, a lot. It was amazing watching how the bond between the little girl, Pita? and Denzel Washington, slowly evolved to the point, that he could feel love for another person, again. The way the film was shot was beautiful, even under the dire circumstances. Denzel Washington
has the most incredible timing,. he is always believable and can make me smile or cry. This movie was just so emotionally intense. Beauty, in a sometimes very sick world.
That's tuff because there are several to choose from. From a character portrayal and his ability to embed himself into the person and take me with him... TRAINING DAY! He played a really good bad guy, the kind of bad guy you secretly cheered and routed for although you were happy that he got it in the end.
I really enjoyed this movie. I really got to me in the end. I hope Denzel get an award for this role. he really deserves this one. I would recommend everyone to go and see this movie. Don't leave your seat because you'll miss something.
your number one fan lo
Man on Fire. Most provocative movie of all times. He gives us a chance of hope of redeeming ourselves after all the turmoil’s of life. The inspiration and determination of redefining himself and taking care of someone he never thought he'd care about is very admirable. He took chances only very few would ever imagine to take. The one he's been praying for a long time. It took one little girl to make him realize life is more than trouble. When she left (or he thought), he was determined to make sure what he might find was worth to die in vengeance, and understanding she (life) was worth living to the finale. This brought more than tear. It brought inspiration; meaning take care of what is worthy, not engage in accepting what is material.
Training Day - a Classic!!
American Gangster because I do not really remember any movie that i have seen with Denzel all that much
Has to be Training Day - he did nasty so well!
My favorite Denzel movie used to be Training Day but now it is the Book of Eli. I was lifted when I saw this movie and that is more than can be asked for these days. People of God finally get something they can go to the theater to see and not feel assaulted. Thank, you Mr. Washington. It filled me up. It gave me what I needed in my spirit.
My grandfather spoke every word of the King James bible as he lay dying and he had been completely blind for 20 years. I have never seen such a scenario portrayed anywhere (except of course in my new book: SECRET BABYLON, ENEMY OF THE SPIRIT) available online at ***faithbishop.net and everywhere online wheregreat books are sold.
It just shows the other actors coming along that money isn't everything.
My favorite Denzel Washington movie was American Gangster, because his performance was so intense.
He has been in so many fantastic films that this is a really tough question. So, I have to say that the most intriging film was "The Bone Collector", while he most riviting was "Man on Fire". I can't wait to add "The Book of Eli" to my list of Denzel "gotta see" and have the movie in my DVD collection.
Denzel's best movie is Training Day. He made that character his own and the movie itself was great to watch too.
I'd have to go with Malcolm X........where he played someone convincingly other than Denzel
My favorite movie starring Denzel Washington is Training Day because he played the role of bad cop perfectly.
though there are so many good choices, id have to go with "training day." He definitely deserved the best actor award for that one. The job he does in the end scene when he finally gets confronted conveying so many mixed emotions simultaneously is FLAWLESS. I LOVE this guy!
I liked Preacher's Wife because Denzel actually SMILES. I wish he would do it more often.
My favorite D. Washington film isTraining Day! Only because he was so realistic in the part of a really hard core, no sh__ taking all for myself bad*** cop. It will probably be my must favorite because before it no one had ever seen that side and no character like it for him before.
My favorite film with Mr. Washington is always his next one. I look forward to every new film and performance. As for past work, Cry Freedom & Glory solidified my enduring loyalty to this great actor.
I just loved Denzel in DejaVu. Great story and he was just so smart in figuring out what was happening and how to get both timelines to coordinate so that the leading lady didn't have to stay dead. Great story and he was just so... wait I already said that...dejavu! Wow!
Philadelphia, he delivered an amazing performance in that.
How can anyone possibly pick a favorite from such a long list of achievements? There is no one single favorite I could choose that would stand out ahead of the rest. John Q., Taking of Pelham 123, Carbon Copy, Crimson Tide, The Pelican Brief, Remember the Titian's, Glory, The Siege, Training Day, Yhe Bone Collector, & Man on Fire to name a few. They are all great as was The book of Eli which I hope to add to my Denzel DVD collection when it comes out. Thank you Denzel and keep making great movies.
Training Day because he was a mean dude..He played the part good
Man on Fire, great story line, liked the exploding butt plug.
You'll think I'm crazy, but I thought he was great in Much Ado About Nothing.
Its very difficult to choose one movie over another when Denzel is the force driving the story. If I could only have one dvd to watch over and over (which I do lol) I would choose Deja Vu. Denzel gives his character, agent Doug Carlin, such intensiveness you are captivated by the story line within minutes of the opening scenes. I think the main reason I love Denzel as an actor is he makes me believe his characters are real people with real emotions. I look forward to every new movie he makes as I know I will love it!
Remember the Titans. It is a great movie done by Denzel but the power of the movie is what makes its great and one of his best.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
