first of all how can you even call this a movie!!! the acting is horrible. there is nothing real about the acting and it actually made me feel sorry for the actors at some points. it did have a good story line though, but that doesn't make up for the bad acting.

Kirk Cameron is definitely the icon of modern Christian movies. The movie made $33.5 million in the box office, making it the highest grossing independent film in 2008. From the apocalyptic backdrop of LEFT BEHIND, CAMERON stays in present tense, hits dead center of the marriage rut in FIREPROOF. Truly a pragmatic expose on the day-to-day onslaught on challenged vows. I for one believe that LOVE is NOT the core stabilizer of marriage. LOVE is a crucial element; however, I believe that COMMITMENT takes on center stage. " DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR HEART...LEAD YOUR HEART " , Cameron aptly puts it. A complete reversal of what modern-day love gurus would have you to believe. Definitely a "must see" regardless of one's religious persuasions.

I would be the first to admit that I thought this film was going to be chessy and corny. I was surprise to learn that it was not. It had passion, heart, and complex characters. For those who are complaining about the "acting", you have to understand that the people playing the roles were meant to play those roles. The movie made me laugh, cry, and really think about life. Go see this film!

55%

Action: 1.5/3 + Comedy: 1/2 + Good vs Evil: 0.5/1 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 + Music: 0.5/1 = 5.5/10 or 55%.

Kirk Cameron is a firefighter that can save strangers, is a hero in the public eye, but can't save his marriage. He therefore, because of his father's wishes, uses Christian ethics over a 40-day period to save his marriage.

The relevance and admiration for this film will undoubtedly manifest because over 50% of marriages in the U.S.A. end in divorce and also because the new "thing" is Kirk Cameron led Christian dramas. There is an audience for this and it will sustain for some time just as the Mary/Kate franchise did. The obvious difference between Mary/Kate and Kirk is that we all knew the Mary/Kate movies were direct to video, didn't deserve thea...

I loved your review.  Can't say that I have seen the movie but I have a feeling you expressed my views of it perfectly if I had.

The obvious difference between Mary/Kate and Kirk is that we all knew the Mary/Kate movies were direct to video, didn't deserve theater screens, and were targeted at a specific audience. Nobody has realized that this film (as well as the Left Behind's) are mere made for TV flicks that don't deserve to be on theater screens either.
