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.

Fan The Fire

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.

Radio Times

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.

Audience Reviews for Fire With Fire

Revenge has its own set of rules.

Good Movie! The movie itself isn't anything new or amazing but it is actually pretty fast paced and keeps you interested and watching the entire time. The movie when you break it down is just another vigilante type revenge movie but again because it's so fast paced and entertaining you can't stop watching. Also Vincent D'Onofrio gives such a great performance in this that watching for just for him is almost enough to keep you till the end. Overall, this is a fast paced exciting action movie that is the perfect kind to just put in and veg out to. I liked it.

After witnessing the brutal murders of a convenience store owner and his son; firefighter, Jeremy Coleman barely escapes with his life. As he is forced to testify against the crime lord, Hagan, he is placed in the witness protection program under the watch of the U.S. Marshals. As his new identity becomes compromised Jeremy is forced to take an unexpected course of action in order to get his life back and save the lives of those he loves.

Decent. Watchable. More a Josh Duhamel movie, than a Bruce Willis movie. Nothing very exciting, though, in either case....

Poorly done, nonsensical crime drama that somehow managed to attract many name actors to it.
