Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Josh Duhamel fails to set the screen ablaze as a California firefighter who becomes an unlikely vigilante avenger in this very routine action thriller, but he gets no help from a damp squib of a script."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Although it's probably the biggest movie yet to emerge from rapper 50 Cent's production outfit, this damp squib still has "straight to DVD" stamped all over it."
‑ John Ferguson, Radio Times
"[Duhamel] makes a perfect fireman because he's such a charisma vacuum he could suck the oxygen out of any blaze."
‑ Grant Rollings, Sun Online
"Avoid like the plague. The nasty Bubonic kind."
‑ Olly Richards, Empire Magazine
"[DVD Review] I can't fully recommend it, but if all you're looking for is a cheesy action film for a rainy evening, you could do far worse than this."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"If action B-movies are your thing then this is just about worth searching out."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"It looks like a dozen others of its kind and hasn't a smidgeon of distinction about it anywhere, except that Willis has given up his various wigs and thus looks more like his true grizzled self."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"You need to see this like we need another closeup of a hole in the head."
‑ Henry Barnes, Guardian
"Violent, obnoxious and forgettable, Fire With Fire is an action shambles with some hilariously literal plotting."
‑ Chris Blohm, Little White Lies
"Spends much of its run time in neutral with actors either unprepared for the demands of the subgenre or locked in paycheck mode, stiffly working through tepid dialogue, tedious procedural events, and dull romantic yearnings."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"The result is breathtakingly dumb with absolutely zero redeeming features."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"Your hard-earned cash deserves to be spent on something which, at the very least, attempts to engage the viewer on some level."
‑ Adam Lowes, HeyUGuys
"David Barrett's daft, generic revenger barrels along nicely (often nastily) enough, but it must have missed going straight to DVD by a whisker."
‑ Paul M. Bradshaw, Total Film
"Oh, Josh Duhamel - is there nothing you can do?"
‑ Niki Boyle, The List
