Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fireproof stops becoming relatable to us all and only to the already, or easily, indoctrinated."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, L.A. Weekly
"While hardly sophisticated in its approach and certainly not polished in its technical elements, the film does get its heartfelt message across with undeniable sincerity."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Parental Content Review"
‑ Jim Judy, Screen It!
"The writing and directing Kendrick brothers, Alex and Stephen, have raised blandness and narrative predictability to the level of high art."
‑ Josh Rosenblatt, Austin Chronicle
"Fireproof isn't merely preaching to the already converted; it's helping to further alienate the unconverted and the skeptical."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Unfortunately, the emphasis on what God wants has a way of overwhelming who Caleb and Catherine are as characters."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"In the history of marital discord in the movies, has there ever been a blander conflict than the one between firefighter Kirk Cameron and his goodly wife Erin Bethea in the dismal Christian-themed melodrama Fireproof?"
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"As a companion piece to a Bible study group this may have some merit, but it doesn't belong in a theater."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"It's one of the funniest films I've seen all year and that was obviously not the intention. This was made for elderly folk who watch Oprah and Dr. Phil and only see 2 movies a year. Embarrassing."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Christian-themed marriage drama won't grab kids."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"You probably can't blame pastors moonlighting as moviemakers for wanting to pack their film with multiple messages, but the conversion subplot feels shoehorned into the more crucial marital doings."
‑ Chris Willman, Entertainment Weekly
"This is a decent attempt to combine faith and storytelling that will certainly register with its target audience."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"People like Kirk Cameron apparently require Scriptural instruction about how to not act like a complete **** to your wife."
‑ Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly
"...decently made, with good production values, sincere performances..."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Geared for the same Christian audience that loved "Facing the Giants," it is another winner for the Kendricks brothers"
‑ Jackie K. Cooper,
