Thursday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Forgiveness is between them and God. It’s my job to arrange the meeting.”?

Answer: “Man on Fire”
Denzel Washington’s characters in action films are generally “kings of cool”. They are considered men of few words. Though frugal in vocabulary you know they will hit the mark. In this film, Washington plays a depressed former CIA operative (Creasy) whom we see, at the start, trying to take his own life. When the gun mis-fires he sees it as an omen that he still has a purpose on this earth. Accordingly, he takes on the job to protect a nine-year-old girl (Pita, played by Dakota Fanning) from the threat of kidnapping. Pita does get kidnapped and Creasy is seriously wounded in the exchange. In a plot that involves a number of double crosses and corrupt policemen, Creasy makes a vow to destroy everyone involved in Pita’s abduction, no matter the cost. In this scene he uses the house of an elderly couple from which to launch an ambush at a group of gang members. The elderly owner of the house informs John that the church says you should forgive. That’s when Creasy responds with the eloquent rejoinder in the question.
