Audience Reviews for Trial By Fire: Lives Re-forged

Very impactful! Incredible and inspiring stories. Emotionally gripping and difficult to watch at times due to the intense trauma the burn survivors endured, but through it all there is a powerful and positive message. I definitely recommend it.

I was so deeply touched by the stories in this movie. But better yet, I was challenged. The strange thing is I thought this movie was about burn victims, instead it was a story about courage, character and faith in ourselves. This movie changed me. I will never look at a burn victim again and not have a deep insight into their journey. The movie never went too far with its imagery, but it did plum deep into my thoughts. I thought of my late Dad, my mom's struggles, my girlfriend's challenges and my own. These people faced the ultimate and passed the test, the sobering issue was not their burns... but how would I face my challenges. I could not ask for more from a movie.
