After witnessing the murders of a store owner and his son, Jeremy Coleman barely escapes with his life.

As he is forced to testify against crime lord Hagan, he is placed in the witness protection program under the watch of the U.S. Marshals.

As his new identity becomes compromised Jeremy is forced to take an unexpected course of action in order to get his life back and save the lives of those he loves.....

If you take away the 'get them before they get you' part of the narrative,this film is just a dramatic retread of the eighties comedy 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil', person sees a crime, gets away, and the bad guys are after them.

But naturally, the cops are after our hero, because he's seen Kill Bill a couple of times.

If this had been made in the nineties, it would have starred Keenan Ivory Wayans, and had a comic twist on the narrative, and still have that dark edge.

Here we suffice with Duhamel literally taking the title for granted, running every five minutes and breathing heavily.

Dawson is the best thing about the film, Vincent D'onofrio turns up as a guest villain, and Bruce Willis, although very good, looks very, very smug.

It's by the numbers stuff, and its nothing memorable, but you'll have a bit if fun watching all the clichés add up.

In Long Beach, there is a turf war going on. Firefighter Jeremy Coleman (Josh Duhamel) is a witness to a murder and has been placed in the witness protection program where he falls in love with a US Marshall (Rosario Dawson). Bruce Willis plays local police chief Mike Cella who would like very much to see crime boss David Hagan (Vincent D'Onofrio) go to jail.

While in the program, the bad guys find out where Jeremy is located and threaten to kill everyone Jeremy knows and their family. Jeremy goes vigilante in order to save himself and everyone else. He also gives us overwhelming clues about the ending.

I liked the climax of the film, in spite of the fact I knew it was coming from 30 minutes into the film. The script was overly predictable and the dialouge wasn't moving. Vinnie Jones gives us a brief bad guy, and likewise 50 Cent wasn't on screen that long. I would have liked to have seen more of Willis in the film.

Might work as a 99 cent rental for some people. Not a keeper.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, implied sex scene, no nudity. Torture. Bullet holes in the head.

Okay, so ‘revenge films’ are nothing new. Ever since Charles ‘Paul Kersey’ Bronson lost his family to muggers, normally peaceful citizens have been taken to the streets in films to dish out a helping of vigilante justice. This is one of those films.

Here we have a firefighter who witnesses a gangland hit and has to go into the witness protection scheme. Trouble is, the people he’s set to testify against find out where he’s hiding, therefore forcing him to ‘get them’ before they get him.

And it plays out as you might imagine (assuming you’ve seen any of the other hundred or so revenge movies). You may notice I’m not going into great detail about the storyline. That’s because there isn’t really much to give away in terms of plot. It’s just a revenge film. And it’s not that bad. It’s the sort of film you rent over buying and probably shouldn’t pay too much attention to the minor plot holes here and there.

I didn’t mind it and certainly didn’t think I’d wasted an hour and a half watching it. However, the thing I was hoping for was to see the firefighter using his firefighting skills to flambé his tormenters. In fact... I thought that was the whole point of the film, i.e. he uses what he knows to start fires with which to exact his revenge. As it turns out he just buys a gun and shoots them.

Oh, and Bruce Willis is in it, too. But then it was never released in the cinema and Bruce seems to have a clause in his contract that states he must never appear in a film that’s actually given a theatrical release.

Anyway, as I say, rent this before you buy. It’s not bad (especially for a straight-to-DVD movie), but could have been a little better.

"Fire With Fire" stars Josh Duhamel as Jeremy Coleman, a firefighter taken into protective custody when he witnesses a brutal murder, and agrees to testify against the killer. When the security of the witness protection programme is compromised and he is almost killed, Coleman decides "it's him or me" and goes after the killer himself, while a US marshal (Rosario Dawson) and a grizzled cop (Bruce Willis) struggle to contain the situation.
If this scenario sounds a bit predictable, that's because it is. Having said that, this a decent action film with plenty of thrills and spills, and an interesting and very likeable hero in Duhamel. It couldn't claim to be memorable, but it's a decent night in with beer and your feet up in front of the fire. Very much in the "you could do a lot worse" category.

Watchable, but I would have preferred Bruce Willis to be the main hero. The fireman is a bit wimpy, then reverts to being psychopathic in parts, then back to wimpy. Without spoiling the ending, I got a bit irritated by all the OTT romance stuff as it was a bit cheesy. What irritated me the most though was said fireman, being totally unprofessional, entering the burning building with his helmet and breathing apparatus on, then promptly taking his breathing mask off and then a few moments later, losing his helmet too. What trained fireman does something so ridiculous? Oh, yes, I almost (didn't) forget, it's the movies and they want the audience to see his face. His girlfriend in the end had more hutzpah than the bloke. It was a watchable movie though, but not a great one. Right at the end, prepare for the cheesy one-liner too, as if that couldn't be foreseen coming...
