The film has become a surprise hit on Netflix

之一 Denzel Washington’s most underrated films has become a surprise hit on 网飞.

The film, Man on Fire, was made in 2004 and saw Washington team up with late director Tony Scott. The pair had previously worked together on Crimson Tide.

Washington stars as John W Creasy, a former CIA officer who is hired by a wealthy family to protect their daughter, Pita (played by Dakota Fanning) because of some recent kidnappings. Pita is eventually taken, leaving Creasy on a mission to catch those responsible.

The film earned more than $130 百万 (£95 million) at the box office and is a firm favourite amongst Washington’s fans, but it wasn’t well-received by critics. The film currently has a 35 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The BBC wrote at the time: “Po-faced, dull and sadistic, Man On Fire is a major disappointment from the Crimson Tide team of Denzel Washington and Tony Scott”, 尽管 独立 说: “If it’s just Scott’s way of saying, ‘Get a load of this, Quentin’, the speed of response (12 几年后 Reservoir Dogs) leaves something to be desired.”

然而, the film has stormed into Netflix’s “most viewed” charts on the UK this week since its addition onto the streaming platform earlier this month.

Fans on social media have also been reacting to the film’s inclusion on Netflix, with one writing: “Man on Fire added to Netflix, the best film ever made!” Another added: “A must watch on Netflix”. You can see some more of the reaction here:

Washington and Scott also worked together on films Deja Vu, The Taking of Pelham 123Unstoppable before Scott’s death in 2012.

Speaking shortly after his death, Washington said: “Tony Scott was a great director, a genuine friend and it is unfathomable to think that he is now gone. He had a tremendous passion for life and for the art of filmmaking and was able to share this passion with all of us through his cinematic brilliance. My family sends their prayers and deepest condolences to the entire Scott family.”
