Kirk Cameron (Left Behind) stars as Caleb Holt, a heroic fire captain who values dedication and service to others above all else. But the most important partnership in his life, his marriage, is about to go up in smoke. This gripping story follows one man's desire to transform his life and marriage through the healing power of faith and fully embrace the fireman's code: Never Leave Your Partner Behind.
A feel-good drama, Fireproof has a strong agenda: stay married, lead an honest life, and let your faith in a higher power help guide you. A still boyish-looking Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains) stars as Caleb Holt, a mercurial-tempered firefighter whose marriage is on the rocks. He clearly enjoys his status as a hero, but it comes at the expense of his marriage. His wife Catherine (Erin Bethea) is tired of the distance and wants him to make more of an effort at home, rather than surf porn on the Internet and hoard his earnings toward his dream fishing boat instead of helping out her disabled mother. Faced with impending divorce, Caleb's dad challenges him to follow the "40-day love dare," in which each task (cook her dinner, say nothing negative, etc.) is meant for him to better understand love and commitment and try and win his wife back. The third film by brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick, Fireproof is the siblings' most polished feature. Cameron does a fine job of making Caleb real and believable, even when we're not always liking him. Though saddled at times with maudlin lines, Cameron adds emotion and range to his role. There is a not so subtle theme that the Holts--who at the beginning of the film are agnostic--needed religion to save their marriage. Clearly, Fireproof believes in its agenda and was made with the Christian audience in mind. Whether secular audiences will fall under its spell as well is debatable. But no one should walk away from the film offended. --Jae-Ha Kim

The message is this: If you want to know how to put something together and make it work, follow the manual. The Gospel is clearly presented, but even if one were not convinced about the need for salvation, the principles if applied would still produce a happy marriage.
The whole movie is amazing, considering that most of the cast and crew are volunteers from a church. The Kendrick brothers apply their considerable skills in producing and directing, creating a fast-moving, realistic story that teaches and entertains at the same time. I highly recommend this for older teens and adults.
Although the acting was sketchy at times the movie itself is very powerful and definitely gets you thinking about how you could work on your own relationship whether it is rocky or going very well. There are always things you can work on and this movie and the correspondnig book (The Love Dare) help you prepare for life's challenges.

UNE HISTOIRE TRIOMPHANTE ET PUISSANTE!
Un film inspirant spirituelement, classée FILM # 1-2008 de la foi, en Amérique!
NE LAISSEZ JAMAIS VOTRE PARTENAIRE SEUL EN ARRIERE.
RÉCONFORTANT, STUPÉFIANT! LES ACTIONS SONT ÉPOUSTOUFLANTES !
-Dr Gary Smalley, auteur du livre « Changez Votre Coeur, Changez Votre Vie »
Caleb Holt (Kirk Cameron - Left Behind 1,2 ,3 États de guerre), est un capitaine de pompier, combattant les feus héroïquement, qui évalue sa vie et son service à sauver les gens avant tout autres choses.
Mais l'évaluation qui devrait être la plus importante dans sa vie : son mariage, est sur le point de partir en fumée.
Cette histoire captivante d'un homme qui démontre une volonté de transformer sa vie, son mariage, par le biais du pouvoir de guérison et de la foi en adoptant pleinement le code du vrai pompier : NE LAISSEZ JAMAIS VOTRE PARTENAIRE SEUL EN ARRIERE.
It was made on around a $200,000 budget (I believe) and the acting, writing, directing, editing, production and overall quality of the cinematic elements of the movie are nowhere close to what comes out of Burbank and Studio City.
Fireproof is *good* though, in the moral sense. It is likely one of the only non-fiction movies I've ever seen. It was hard to watch, because the Christians in the movie aren't crazy and didn't do psychotic things. I kept watching for Kirk Cameron to start going nuts, and he didn't. Instead he talked about God like he's *real* and his fire-fighter friend talked about Christ like he *believed* what he was sharing. I've never, not once, ever thought that Hollywood portrayed Christians as anything but mentally deranged nutcases. Every time I see a Hollywood movie with Christians in it, I don't recognize them as anyone I would consider to resemble actual Christians. They're always uneducated bigots, racists, chauvinists, homosexuals, or just plain mean/wicked individuals who are either rationally, sexually, or financially despairing and would abandon Christ if they somehow had the right temptation. It seems that Hollywood is desperate to show that Christians are just as bad as everyone else, but use religion as a cover/smokescreen for their wickedness and as a way to deflect criticism and rational questions. I never feel like Hollywood actually is trying to portray that there could, possibly, be 1 person in the world who reads the Bible, has thought about it, believes it, and actually lives with a rationally grounded and morally compelling belief that Christ is who he claimed to be.Read more ›
