FIREPROOF (2008 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.5|5.0 Stars ìì

Fireproof—predictable, trite—tries too hard to show us how to put a broken marriage back together. The movie is worth a watch due to some pretty fair emergency scenes acted by Kirk Cameron and his supporting cast. The main problem appears to be a poorly written script, but it also seems Director Alex Kendricks did not pull the best that his actors had to offer for this film’s story. The story’s intentions are good; the movie just needs to be placed into more professional hands for full development. It’s worth a watch for anyone struggling with a failing marriage.

Storyline

Fireman Caleb Holt’s (Kirk Cameron) marriage is failing. His father John Holt (Harris Malcom) asks him to try the Love Dare, a 40-day program to re-establish marital strength.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Alex Kendricks for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Catherine Holt (Erin Bethea), Michael Simmons (Ken Bevel), Wayne Floyd (Stephen Dervan), Terrell Sanders (Eric Young), Eric Harmon (Jason McLeod), Cheryl Holt (Phyllis Malcolm), Gavin Keller (Perry Revell), and Robin Cates (Stephanie Makulinski).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. There is a good message here and it does introduce couples to a means of perhaps saving a marriage.
