    Bale is awesome. I LOOOVED him in Reign Of Fire and every movie that he's been in after that has been excellent ... or good at the least.

    He's very overrated IMO.

    I dont get why everyone thinks he's so great. But maybe I havent seen his performance that won everyone over?

    he's been the same old guy in every movie I've seen him in. Very average.

    I liked him in American Psycho, but otherwise he is kinda like Rippy said, "average"

    I haven't gotten to watch 3:10 to Yuma yet though which everybody has been telling me is good

    I never seen all the hype in Denzel..I mean,he's no Pacino or Deniro.Maybe it's a black thing.

    I only seen American Pyscho and thought he was a pretty decent actor from that.

    Denzel plays one kind of character very well. Much like Pacino and Deniro. I don't see much in any of them, other than that they're good at picking roles that suit their base style.

    Why Denzel's name is constantly brought up as the best black actor, I'll never know when Cheadle and Forest Whitaker blow him out of the water.

    Cheadle could play ANY bland ass role that Denzel has played.


    what would it take to play Buddy? A little attitude?? Whoooo big stretch for zel on that one! Way to take a risk!

    NOPE... Whittaker is a better actor than Cheadle to me. Plus I just don't think Denzel could do it like he did. He could have played the role...but Whitaker OWNED IT!
