Certainly, he's one of the most reliable actors of his generation. He chooses reliable scripts and always turns in a reliable performance. He maintains a great range as a Thespian and deserves far more praise than what he gets. Very few actors can cross from meaty dramas to more pop culture performances with ease, but Denzel accomplishes it effortlessly.

You gotta love this man, he can play any role from action to dramatic and he becomes his character, exactly what a true brilliant actor does.
