Fire With Fire (2012)


I need you to trust me. Do everything that I ask and I promise we’ll survive this. Do you trust me?” – Jeremy Coleman

Number of Times Seen – Twice (28 Oct 2012 and 17 Feb 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A fireman placed in the witness protection program after seeing a murder, must try and keep himself alive long enough to testify.

My Take on it – Horrendous film that fails to work on any level despite the fact that they try a bit too hard.

The characters are all quite superficial and stereotypical and none of them are developed at all.

The story is presented in a very predictable way that takes away so much of the potential suspense or tension that this kind of story should provide.

The action sequences are poorly done and make things feel even less realistic than it should in this kind of film.

The cast is quite talented yet completely wasted here.

Bruce Willis, Josh Duhamel, Rosario Dawson and Vincent D’Onofrio are all much better actors than this film allows them to be and that’s quite a shame since with a cast like this the film has so much more potential.

The story itself has been used and reused far too many times and fails to find a uniqueness or substantial quality that would help make it stick out from lots of other films in the genre.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The film has 21 executive producers, surely some kind of record. Probably not so surprising given that the film was financed by 7 separate production companies.  (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
