    I hope he will grow back his hair. I know he needs to show his age some time. But why rush it.

    For a man with so much “range” he plays the same characters over and over again. Always wanting to save the world…

    Playing another cop, same ole, same ole. Most of his role usually consists of him playing cops, or some sort of military person. I love me some Denzel, but i’m tired of the same type character that he plays.

    Just because his characters have the same job it doesn’t mean that they’re the same characters

    The 1974 original was a great movie. Its hard to believe it was directed by the same guy who helmed JAWS the revenge Joseph Sargent. As remakes go Denzel Washington is the right guy for lead role.
