that's a really good way of putting it. i think he has such distinct mannerisms and manner of speaking that his persona overwhelms the roles he's suppose to be encompassing. In his movies after 2000, it does feel like he's just doing denzel in a different costume.
I don't think it was like that in his earlier films tho, in particular Soldier's story which I saw recently.
I feel the same about Leo Dicaprio's performances recently.
