I just watched the movie "Man on Fire". Denzel Washington played the part of John W. Creasey. At the end it says he was born in 1956 and died 12/16/2003. Is that movie based on a true story or fictional? Anyone know? What's the story? It really piqued my interest.

Based on the book of the same name by A.J. Quinnel. The book was set in Italy, with an older character, in the 1980s, and he was a French Foreign Legionairre. It is fiction.

BTW, the book really sucked, the movie was FAR better.

The movie was definitely better than the original that starred Scott Glenn, I think?

Thanks guys. Glad to know it was fictional. Kinda pulled at the heart strings a little.
