His acting now is much better than it was on St. Elsewhere. I especially liked him in American Gangster.

Denzel and his sexy overbite are the business. Great in Cry Freedom, John Q, the Hurrican and heaps of other things I can't remember right now. Has a screen presence that compels you to watch! Update: Watch Inside Man - cool movie with both Denzel & Clive Owen together in one movie, yum, Yum!

To me it always seems that Denzel is just playing Denzel.

Only in "Training Day" and "Devil in a Blue Dress" did he seem to step out of that pattern.

Another one that has really evolved over the years...he was young and new in Glory and did a great job. I wish he had gotten a supporting actor nomination/Oscar for his role as the ambulance chasing lawyer in Philadelphia.....and in Remember the Titans he proved he was good at a leading role too.

He'd be just another actor if he wasn't chosen as the posterchild for Affirmative Action in Hollywood.  The way they just gave him an Oscar for that crap performance in Training Day was a complete joke.  Kurt Russell in Dark Blue was ten times better than Denzel, but since Kurt is white, he didn't receive any consideration.  Seems like a pompous ass, just like every character he plays.  All the same.

For those who said over-rated about Hanks, Pacino and De Niro ~ Denzel is WAY OVERRATED!  He is a decent enough actor (should not have beat out Crowe for that Oscar!), but he is the same no matter what role he is playing.  I couldn't tell the difference in character from Training Day to Preachers Wife.  Yes, he is definitely easy on the eyes, and that smile can melt any heart ~ but what does he have that any other actor doesn't?  He is Ok, but not spectacular, at least to me.

One word describes that man: Dynamic. He's truly one of a kind. Like most actors, it's hard to describe in detail why he's so fun to watch. He just is.

Yes, he's made more than his share of crap over the past few years, but I still think of him as one of the better, more accomplished actors currently working in Hollywood. I know Tom Hanks won the Oscar for "Philadelphia" but I thought Washington gave a far superior and subtle performance in that film (not to take anything away from Hanks, but I thought he did a good, not a great, job). And he was extraordinary in "Training Day"; never before have I seen evil portrayed with such seemingly good-natured insouciance. And he was the most memorable part of the film "Glory". While I had some problems with "Malcolm X" as a film (Spike Lee just doesn't know the meaning of the word "Edit"), Washington tranformed himself into Malcolm X on the screen. It was one of the most magnificent instances of cinematic necromancy I've ever seen. That, for me, is always the sign of a truly great actor...when they can play the part of well-known real-life character and make us forget we're watching an actor playing a part; they're able to transcend the limitations of time and space and actually become that character (Nicholson did it in "Hoffa" and, more recently, Philip Seymour Hoffman did it in "Capote").

Yes, he's Hollywood- but still a talent. As a young actor, check out the terrific "A Soldier's Story" and see him before he was ever famous.

I enjoy watching Denzel Washington and believe he is a pretty good actor. I don't consider him to be great but then he still has time to change my mind. I couldn't thoroughly enjoy him in Training Day because I really hated the movie. I am not certain an Oscar for that role was legitimate. But I look at is as a make-up for being passed in Malcolm X. His Oscar for Glory was completely valid. But what I really loved him in was Man On Fire. He is 100% believable as a drunk with an extremely hard exterior who finally gets his heart touched by a young girl he grows to genuinely love and protect. I am waiting to see more but it seems like he alternates between great movies and horrible ones. And I would like to see a bit more range. I fear he is falling into that "one character role" as most actors do after they have been around for some time.

Good in everything he does. Should have won Oscar for Malcolm X. One of the best actors of today. Commanding presence n every role. Julia Roberts lobbied on his behalf for Oscar for Training day.
