Fireproof

Guest Author - Jamise Grace Liddell

Movie Reviewed: Fireproof
Directed By: Alex Kendrick
Starring: Kirk Cameron, Erin Bethea, Ken Bevel
Rated: Rated PG for thematic material and some peril.
Runtime: 122 min
Studio: Sherwood Pictures


Caleb (Cameron) and Catherine (Bethea) Holt are on the fast track to divorce court. Their complaints might be familiar to those who have suffered or witnessed relationship woes: no respect from your partner, lack of communication and accusations of selfishness.

But prior to going through with the divorce, Caleb’s father a devoted Christian, asks his son to wait 40 days. The senior Holt then gives Caleb a daily list of things to do in order to try and save his marriage. Meanwhile, Caleb, a firefighter, who is celebrated in the community and a leader in the workplace, seems to be confused about his failing marriage. And while Caleb is skeptical about his father’s suggestion, he is desperate enough to try to do something, anything, to save his marriage.

The folks who brought last year’s Christian hit, “Facing the Giants” are back with a poignant and inspirational effort which successfully combines faith in Christ and the storytelling on film.

Fireproof is completely engaging and a really impressive testimony to what can be done with new talent. With the exception of Cameron, most of the actors in the film had no other film credits outside of Sherwood Pictures projects. Kudos for a fine performance from first time film actor, Ken Bevel who portrayed Michael Simmons, the close friend to Caleb in his time of need.

A committed Christian and father of six, Cameron will not kiss other women when he acts, so the team from Fireproof, flew Cameron’s wife, actress Chelsea Noble, in and dressed her like Bethea’s character Catherine, and silhouetted the kissing scenes.

Fireproof has humor, tense action, plenty of time for tears and an introduction of Christian values. Though small children may not be enthralled, pre-teens and up will most likely benefit from this Christ-centered film. Family and work place relationships are explored in a realistic and heartfelt manner, truly there is something in this film for everyone. Even folks who don’t subscribe to any particular faith will enjoy this film.

Shot in Albany, Georgia, the Fireproof is replete with the lovely scenery of the wooded areas, beautiful setting for the film in general and particularly, the heart-stopping action scenes.
