Josh Duhamel fails to set the screen ablaze as a California firefighter who becomes an unlikely vigilante avenger in this very routine action thriller, but he gets no help from a damp squib of a script.
If action B-movies are your thing then this is just about worth searching out.
The result is breathtakingly dumb with absolutely zero redeeming features.
Although it's probably the biggest movie yet to emerge from rapper 50 Cent's production outfit, this damp squib still has "straight to DVD" stamped all over it.
It looks like a dozen others of its kind and hasn't a smidgeon of distinction about it anywhere, except that Willis has given up his various wigs and thus looks more like his true grizzled self.
Your hard-earned cash deserves to be spent on something which, at the very least, attempts to engage the viewer on some level.
[Duhamel] makes a perfect fireman because he's such a charisma vacuum he could suck the oxygen out of any blaze.
David Barrett's daft, generic revenger barrels along nicely (often nastily) enough, but it must have missed going straight to DVD by a whisker.
Violent, obnoxious and forgettable, Fire With Fire is an action shambles with some hilariously literal plotting.
[DVD Review] I can't fully recommend it, but if all you're looking for is a cheesy action film for a rainy evening, you could do far worse than this.
