I love him in every movie. i’m not a teen but he makes me dream….

If Denzel is in the movie, then it’s a good movie. No, correction, it’s a “great” movie.
My favorite actor, my favor movies: Mississippi Masala his character displays a hard working, determined man and dedication to family,Remember the Titan, character portrays, strength, determination, and courage, he stands up for what is right for all team members, insights character and agape love among all team members, faith and determination is highly displayed thru out the movie, The Great Debater, all time favorite, displays determination, strength, motivation, and focused, with a can win attitude when things seem impossible the possible can and will prevail.

your movies really inspire me especially Cry Freedom, Remember the titans, John Q and Great debaters. I cant wait to c ur next movie, maybe it would be Nelson mandela, Robert Sobukwe or Martin Luther King.
One of the greatest Actors. i would rank him with Sean Connery. Does anyone know the name of the latest movie of his that gets released next week?
I have to say that I love Denzel, all his movies are excellent. I’ve never seen a bad movie that he has been in. He is one of my absolutely favorite actors. The Hurricane, Malcolm X, and Training Day are at the top for me as far as his films go.
To TD – #23 comment – Yes, the Book of Eli was an excellent film and I don’t think that it would have been what it was without Denzel. He really made the film. Was it as good as Training Day? Well I can’t answer that because I’m biased (Training Day is my all time favorite movie), but yeah, it’s up there, he’s a original badass in the film…worth watching more than once.
The book of Eli was amazing, i just got done watching it. Keep up the good work!
WELL, HE’S DONE IT AGAIN!!!! If any of you have not seen “Unstoppable”, don’t wait…do it now! Run don’t walk. It hasn’t been out a week and I’ve seen it twice. Each time, everyone in the theater got involved…laughing, cheering or crying (men too) on queue.
Unstoppable another great film
thebest 4rm south africa
Honestly denzel washington is the best actor i have ever seen that a truth.
i think that denzel is one of the kindest, most down to earth actors on the planet and i strongly agree with the real frank lucas, that he is the best actor on this earth.
Denzel is by far the best actor I have and probably ever will see! I think he’s bigger then Michael Jackson, President Obama, Tiger Woods or anybody for that matter!! I rather meet him anyday and unlike 90% of Hollywood, you never hear about him in a scandal or on the news. He is an awesome father I hear, role model and I own almost all of his movies. We bow down to you great sir! lol..
im trying to find out if denzel was ever in a film where he played a specialist in laser targeting and gets betrayed on a mission any help would be great
Mr. Washington is the best actor of all time. He has been robbed by hollywood. No one has a list of movies like this. How many oscar does he have? 1. And they gave it to him for a movie that perp. a bad black cop. Dont get me wrong he did that movie but he has created and mastered so many other characters. Im just so hurt. how has been treated. We love you Mr. Washington. O yeah I buy all your movie from walmart not the black market.
Denzel is my best actor of all time. i respect you alot my man, Remember the Titans, training day n man on fire what can you say?
Well what can I say. I’ve had the Antoine Fisher dcs for some years now and never watched it until tonight. Absolutely amazing! (…..have you finished, have you finished. Do you realise you’re addressing a superior officer ….). Hopefully most people realise they are watching a superior actor. One of the best, if not THE best.
He’s an awesome role model and some of the charity work and work with soldiers is not widely known, but he knows and God knows. He seems humble and I know that God will continue to bless him so he can continue to inspire others. God bless you Denzel.xx
i love he’s new one…”unstoppable”
I have a real doozie for everyone. If you have the means, there is a movie called “Quick Change” from 1990 starring Bill Murray (of all people). In the first 5 minutes of the movie, Bill’s character enters and robs a bank. right before Bill fires the first two shots, you see a 2 second shot of a movie extra who looks exactly like a younger Denzel. If its not him, then he has an evil twin!!!! Please let me know what you think. Thanks!!! (i did check the credits, there is nobody listed for the scene)
Hi Denzel-u r real example of acting.All the very best
I actually think that Mr. Washinbgton is the greatest black male actor this century has seen. I own all oif his movies and at times have Denzel Washington nite with the girls. We get together make dishes and strawberry dairquires and drool. Mr. Washington I cried the night that you and Halley Berry both won Oscars. It was well over due for our people. Keep doing what you doing and supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. They too saved a lot of youths lives in my community as well. I salute you Mr. Washington.
