YMMV: Man on Fire
  • Adaptation Displacement: Not many ever speak about the novel or earlier film.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Nine Inch Nails' "The Mark Has Been Made", featured in both the trailers and the movie during Creasy's Lock and Load Montage.
  • Idiot Plot: The various bad guys in this film could have saved themselves a lot of trouble if they had just Pita go the moment it became apparent that they were drawing way to much unwanted attention. Or otherwise avoided acting Stupid Evil or Stupid Greedy.
  • Tear Jerker: The ending. Creasy knowingly trades his life for Lupita's, telling her briefly it's time for her go home, and that he's "going home, too". The movie ends with his obituary.
