Goofs

At the end of the film, when lieutenant Cella (Willis) and the officer Westlake (Bonnie Somerville) are removing from the clipboard the pictures of the Hagan's case, last picture that Westlake takes is the one of the man bold with beard. In the next sequence the picture is still there and is Cella the one that removes it out again. See more »

This fire went out
3 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fire with Fire is a dumb action film. The word DUMB needs to be emphasised.

Rookie writer Tom O'Connor must had won the lottery getting the film green-lit because it needed several more re-drafts. It is about a fireman Jeremy (Josh Duhamel) who witnesses a murder by an Aryan gang boss Hagan (Vincent D'Onofrio)and ends up in witness protection but Hagan is still able to get to him.

Hagan and his gang which features Englishman Vinnie Jones nearly kills his girlfriend and goes after his work colleagues. Jeremy decides to fight fire with fire and hunt Hagan down himself. Bruce Willis plays a cop trying to protect Jeremy.

The film The Exterminator from over 30 years ago had schlock, gory fun with the vigilante film conventions. This was just tedious, dull and stupid. People talk or go after their loved ones when they should be shooting bad guys. Duhamel is wooden, Willis has nothing to do, at least D'Onoforio hams it up suitably.
