Bruce Willis is a smart man
Verified purchase
Bruce still gets the occasional big role like the hit Glass from 2019 but it seems like Mr. Willis is up to something else. I've noticed several movies on Prime with Willis listed as the first name or among the first giving the impression he is the star of the film or at least has a significant role. However, in these movies Willis is playing some type of law enforcement but the role is minor and is just in a support role for the main good guy of the movie. I'm guessing he gets a very nice payday for no more than a few days of work and selling the movie as a Bruce Willis movie. Not hating, good on him.

The movie is a pretty decent action flick of good guy trying to get revenge against evil guy. Nothing ground breaking but if you like these kind of movies you will probably like this one. Just don't go into it thinking it is a Bruce Willis movie as your reason for watching.

Would Have Been Much Better Without the Cheesy Love Affair
Verified purchase
'Fire with Fire' works in many ways good except for one; the romance between Coleman and Durham just gets in the way and takes up way too much time out of the main story. This film could have worked out a lot better without so much emphasis on Talia Durham, or at least the character might have been conceived as much more of a badass. But yes to the politics of the film. If a repeat offender violent criminal deserves justice but none can be had via the usual legal channels, then their victims are justified in taking matters into their hands, although this course of actions is certainly not without its perils as it diminishes the value of the all-important law and justice.

firemen have some special investigative tricks
Verified purchase
Off the bat I liked the 5.1 before even starting. Then I liked the 16:9 fullscreen video. I like the action and violence. As expected there is fire and explosions. I like the shooting. I like the punching and kicking. I like the fast moving car with subsequent explosion.
I got an email with four movie recommendations. All were what I like. I have the other three in my Blu-ray library. Wish there was a way to let Amazon know that I own these.
I was upset to see that WATCH NEXT was absent from my Sony Amazon app yesterday but it showed up today and this fired up movie was the one to watch next. yay

Didn't take long to see the lefty political BS
Verified purchase
Just get to the first 10 min. Bad guys always the same, good guys too. In real life, REAL stats tells us who does most of the damage. I'm sick of political correctness ruining my sports and movies. Turned it off after10 min.

Wasn't Bad
Verified purchase
The movie wasn't bad, but it wasn't altogether good. I can understand straight to DVD, but it still is somewhat unbelievable considering this movie had a pretty good cast. Typical genre movies (spoiler alert). Working man sees a murder, police can't get the villain, and police needs witness to testify. Things go south in protection, witness falls in love. He would do anything for love. Witness beats up all the bad guys. Not bad for a days work for a working man to kill a gang of hardened criminals. Corny in spots, but watchable.

Worst acting / script / direction
Verified purchase
Wow, how can world class actors like Bruce Willis [Die Hard Series], Vincent D'Onofrio [Full Metal Jacket] and new comer Josh Duhamel -- come out with such utter crap? Answer: script written by 3-year old, direction by Walmart door greeter [no offense to Walmart staff], production by high school drama class, and executive producers from farmer's market. This is the sort of film that students should study -- WHAT NOT TO DO.

Back in the old days of Blockbuster Video this would never have made it off the cutting room floor 'cause the plastic VHS cassettes and magnetic tape were worth more than the entire budget for this garbage.

To literally fight fire with fire
Verified purchase
This movie could have been a lot better, with these wonderful actors.It isn't as good as Law and Order ,or Las Vegas or Die Hard. The second movie , I have seen lately where D'Onofrio plays a psychopath. Why? Why would you do this. Scared me half to death. They don't come more evil. This is an action adventure, love story, witness protection, good guy , bad guy movie. It's very dark as in without color, also. You don't teach someone to shoot and then, he all of a sudden, can kill everyone with one shot right between the eyes. That part is not believable.

Good guy with back against the wall
Verified purchase
My husband and I enjoyed this movie - for what it is. It's a (or should be) low-budget straight-to-DVD movie.

But...the acting is pretty good. I especially enjoyed Vincent D'Onofrio in a bad guy role. And he was an Aryan very bad guy in this film. Josh Duhamel was the protagonist of the film and he played a fairly inept average Joe for about 2/3 of the movie. Then vengeance mode kicked in and he went after the bad guys that dared threaten his girl and his best friends.

Bruce Willis had a very minor role but he was good in it.

So - watching this made for a good movie night with hubby. We both enjoyed the film. And how often does that happen?
