Fire with Fire trailer looks rather strong
I don't know what I was expecting when I started watching the Josh Duhamel, Rosario Dawson and Bruce Willis film Fire with Fire, after all I hadn't heard much about it and the trailer was showing that it's about to hit Blu-ray and DVD, so really I wasn't expecting that much.
Actually I was rather surprised as it looks a rather strong thriller, a revenge thriller, although it is fair to say that the trailer does perhaps give away a part of the story it shouldn't.
I really do like the way the story begins in the trailer and is told, it doesn't feel like a normal film in this genre, it also seems quite cinematic in the second half and it builds a strong revenge story with a surprising cast list, so why then is it just heading to DVD and Blu-ray?
The release dates lined up for the film are through November and December for America, Norway and Sweden and that's it. Does that mean that the film is really that bad?
Strange since Fire with Fire stars Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Josh Duhamel, Vincent D'Onofrio, Richard Schiff and Kevin Dunn, but then there are Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson, Vinnie Jones and 50 Cent as well, none of whom appear in the trailer.
I've heard little about the quality of the film but judging from the trailer I'd be surprised if it's really that bad. Here's the blurb for the film:
After witnessing the brutal murders of a convenient store owner and his son; firefighter, Jeremy Coleman nearly escapes with his life. As he is forced to testify against the crime lord, Hagan, he is placed in the witness protection program under the watch of the U.S. Marshalls. As his new identity becomes compromised Jeremy is forced to take an unexpected course of action in order to get is life back and save the lives of those he loves.
Now here's the action packed, cinematic, and a little bloody red band trailer for Fire with Fire through TrailerAddict:
The film was directed by David Barrett who's directed a lot of top television shows and been a second unit director on a good few films although the writing talent of Tom O'Connor and the uncredited Lowell Cauffiel is new. Would you take a chance on this?
