Keith - Fireproof is a great film to be reviewing this week since it’s the one week a year that focuses on relationships, at least that and chocolates. Fireproof is from the makers of Facing the Giants and Flywheel and takes on marital relationships in this film. While some may get bogged down in the inspiration from which this movie stems, I don’t believe many will. The most important message in this movie is: what are you willing to fight for in your life. This motto is memorably stated in a classic line when a fellow firefighter tells Kirk Cameron that he’s seen him rush into a burning building to save someone he didn’t know and won’t even attempt to save his marriage to the person he once loved. It’s these sentiments that make Fireproof a powerful movie going experience that is more about life than your typical movie and is actually based on a real material source that is available called the Love Dare. Fireproof gets 3 paws.
Noel - Fireproof is a great release, just in time for Valentines Day. Most of the time, we watch movies to entertain us and give us a little laugh. I would have never expected to see a movie released that could actually help your marriage, yet here it is. Fireproof is about a firefighter and his ten year marriage that has grown cold. During an argument, his wife finally says she wants out and they agree on something; getting a divorce. Kirk Cameron’s character calls his parents to break the news to them and his father asks him to do something before he decides to sign the papers; a 40 day trial run to see if it could help save their marriage. Reluctantly, he agrees and starts his journey on the love dare. Christianity is a big part of this movie and I think it shows that in order to have a healthy and happy marriage, it needs to be built on God’s foundation for marriage, not just what we think marriage involves. This is a great movie that I recommend anyone to see, especially if you are married and even if you’re not, it can teach you about relationships. This movie will change the way you act towards each other and make you think about the way you speak to one another. It’s a shame there aren’t more movies out there like this. 3 ½ paws.
