As a Christian, I’m probably supposed to love this movie. However, it was exceptionally painful for me to watch.
While I readily admit that the movie has a good message, it was buried beneath HORRIBLE acting. It was so bad that Jonathan and I couldn’t help but make fun of it throughout.
Beyond that, though, Kirk Cameron’s character in the beginning of the movie reminded me far too much of my ex-husband. It was traumatizing to watch him scream at his wife. It took me back to places I don’t like to remember…
Like most good movies, Fireproof had a happily ever after ending. But not all marriages are salvageable. It takes TWO willing people to work on a marriage. I obviously didn’t have that luxury.
In the end, I DO recommend the movie for its content, but it’s not one I’ll be watching again any time soon.
