Audience Reviews for Fire with Fire


One of my top 80's romance pics. :) Just a simple love story of two unlikely characters falling in love in this Teen Drama. :)

Donna Dawson

Super Reviewer

An 80s juvenile romance flick that I actually liked. This is saying a lot, since most of the 'classics' left me wanting more. The main character seemed to be the male protagonist, who is mature despite his youth. Maybe that's why I like it so much.

Nisha Kumar

An unusal retelling of "Romeo and Juliet" with a 1980's style. Two teens from oppostie sides of the tracks fight against all odds to stay together while their worlds try to keep them apart. While there is nothing new added to the plot line, the romance and adventure keep you rooting for the lovers all the way up till the end!!!!!!!
