This review is from: Fireproof (DVD)
I enjoyed this movie. Not great, not bad; better than many, but worthy of no Oscars. But I will say this: I've seen plenty of movies in my time, and I've seen actors and actresses be angry on screen, very angry. Yet this is the first time ever that I ever really believed a character was angry. When Cameron becomes angry at his wife early in the movie and starts yelling at her, I cringed because I really sensed that this was not acting, but that he really was ballistic at her, like a line had been crossed from acting to real anger.
I've never sensed this before, but Cameron let me sense real anger, anger that I myself have felt. It blew me away in a sort of scary way.
Was he acting? Sure, but I couldn't tell at all; that's what was amazing.

It was a wonderful movie. I agree...not Oscar material, but then many that do win are not either...LOL. Just a great movie with a strong message and everyone I know has enjoyed it immensely. What a commendation to Kirk Cameron to have you say his anger is so real...a sign of a great actor!
