A beloved family member who was experiencing a very similar stressful situation as was the protagonist in this movie recommended that my wife and I view this film. Kirk Cameron was brilliant in showcasing a very believable male character. The dynamic growth that this character made was simultaneously uplifting and emotionally as well as spiritually provocative. Needless to say, my wife and I shed tears as we saw in Kirk Cameron's character our own dear family member. In an age when sex and violence are gratuitously added to movies in order to cheaply grasp audience attention (and thus more filthy lucre), it's refreshing to have in Fireproof a plot, dialogue, characterization, setting, drama, and acting that transcends the need for senseless adrenaline rushes.
