Movie Review: Fireproof

September 29, 2008

By Guest Opinion, Portland

Fireproof opened up in limited theaters this weekend in Oregon.   You know you have a spiritual film when you see both a church youth group and nuns waiting outside with tickets.  The creators of Facing the Giants are back with another Christian inspiration film called Fireproof, about a troubled marriage.  For Hollywood, marriages are put together instantly and broken as fast.  Marriage is simply not a cinematic topic.  Fireproof provides the opposite.   The film puts you inside a very difficult marriage where both partners are in error.   Instead of easy answers the audience gets served up two hours of more problems and complexities that enter into the relationship of the two strained couple.

The movie offers deep lessons.   The religious message weighs heavy, but is both fitting and earned due to the thoughtfulness and intelligence of the story.

The movie comes highly recommended for both being a truly moving story and a powerful teaching lesson on some of marriages most problematic issues.

Great article! So much junk at the theatres. Great to get a heads up on something inspirational. But, dont’ you find too often these shows are considered “chick flicks” and hard to get young kids or men to go to see. Wish somebody on Hollywood would produce action packed, special-effects pazzazz, inspirational movie with a message. May get folks there that aren’t already Christians out to view and give them something to think about.

The only reason Hollywood has marriages at all in movies is for the fancy weddings.

The movie was highly inspiring and it covered deep issues that families are really facing today. The creators of this movies did such a great job, I’m going back to see it again. I was so uplifted by the message and I really liked how the problems weren’t fix in a week. But it showed how you had to put you heart into working out the solutions and not give up.

I saw “Fireproof” last night and highly recommend it. It was believable and uplifting.
