I was a huge fan of the TV show that aired from 85 to 89. When I saw that Denzel was making this movie I was like a kid at Christmas. And let me say for the record, just like Santa Claus Denzel does NOT disappoint! I have yet to see a role he cannot play. He makes it look effortless because he never appears to be trying too hard, if anything he's always understated. His confidence level in every character he plays i2 off the chart. He believes that he is that character and therefore we believe it too. The smooth way he carries himself along with his facial expressions, especially his eyes, speak way more than the dialog. His smile can be calming and reassuring, or it can make your blood run cold with fear, depending on what character he’s playing. He spends a lot of time in this movie quiet and perfectly still yet the tension and the apprehension of explosive action is so thick you could cut it with a knife.
